  Who remembers the Blue Bird Cafe? Not me. I just have this memory from the cafe.  Who remembers when everyone smoked and you picked up a free little matchbook when you left.  The matchbooks were personalized and some were quite creative. And I think some have become collectibles. What this say...

Continuing with our study of old car lots I came up with four more.  Three more?  As usual there is a mystery that Searcy Sleuths may need to solve.  Let's start with this one.  Wayne Knox Motors.  And note the historic home that we have blogged about in the background.  And it also had one of th...

Now he can take his phone with him and send back interesting pictures.  He found this one a...

Just a blog or two ago I talked about little old office buildings that served as offices for car lots.  I put this one up as an example of how they are just about gone and are showing lots of wear and tear.  This one is in Beebe Arkansas. Imagine my surprise when I was browsing through a 1965 Sea...
