Standing proudly on the eastern portion of New Circle Road (a.k.a. Kentucky Route 4) is the beautiful neon sign at the Parkette Drive In. If you haven’t already seen it, this landmark from the city of my birth was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives in the episode "You Found ‘Em" originally telecast on September 20, 2010.

Despite the beautiful old sign, seemingly good look of the place, and the fact it is located in the city where I was born…based upon the reviews I have seen, this motel is best enjoyed from afar.

This is another photo where I am so glad a sign was captured before it was too late. Sitting on Division Street that was once coast-to-coast U.S. Route 80 before being decommissioned west of Dallas, the Fiesta Motor Inn has since become a member of the America’s Best Value Inn chain. I don’t know who made this decision but, since this picture was taken, the "Motor Inn" portion was covered up with a cheap, plastic sign touting this motel’s new association. Sadly, this is all too common in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex that, still to this day, has a terrible reputation for keeping any of its roadside heritage intact.
