Gentlemen, start your engines!
If you’re looking for that perfect piece for your man cave wall, we have got a choice pick right here.
Built Ford Tough. This Neonetics Ford neon sign will add some testosterone to any space.
Even if you think your cave is perfect, there’s always room for more, and this sign will act like the cherry on top of the perfect sundae.
Neon lighting has been around for over a hundred years: in December of 1910, a dude named George Claude first demonstrated neon lighting at the Paris Motor Show. Most notably used in Times Square, neon lighting enjoyed its height of popularity from 1920 to 1960. Why not add a bit of lighting nostalgia with some neon of your own?
In case you’re unaware, a neon sign uses a tube containing gas which, then electricity is applied via electrodes through the glass. The charge causes a discharge of electrical glow, creating light. The glass and the mixture of gasses cause the different colors. The very first neon signs in the United States were purchased by a Packard car dealership located in Los Angeles. The owner paid $1,250 each for two signs, both of which read “Packard.” The trend snowballed and became extremely popular for use in outdoor lighting displays.
The best part about neon signs is that they can last many years: possibly decades. So when you buy a neon sign like this Built Ford Tough one, you have to realize that it may seem pricey but if you average that cost over ten years, it’s not that unreasonable. And it sure costs a lot less than the original Packard signs.
Or maybe you’re looking for that perfect gift for the Ford lover in your life. Imagine how happy your husband, brother, father, or friend would be to receive one of these signs for his man cave space!
