I have been a Rep for Motor Information Systems (Selling Motor Manuals) for the past 22 years. I used to cover the Northwest Indiana Territory and as I traveled around I would see old neon clocks. When I ran across them for sale - they were just too expensive. Flash Forward to a year ago. I was in a body shop in PG County, Maryland and saw this clock hanging from the ceiling. It was missing the bulb, and the glass cover but the clock worked fine. I bartered with the customer and ended up shelling out about $23 for the clock. I did a bunch of research online and came across this website to learn that it was made by The Modern Clock Company. It was then I realized that it was not a neon clock. It was a white Circline Bulb Clock. I found a sign shop in Frederick Maryland that did Neon work. I had then clean it up, add the neon ring, do the glass work and paint the bezel green. I had them make it look like an old Motor Manual Clock. I think it turned out great!
