Cadillac LaSalle Headquarters Neon Sign
The GM Heritage Center has commissioned the creation of a Cadillac LaSalle sign based on the original that was at the Cadillac Headquarters in the 1930's. Located on the corner of Cass Avenue and Amsterdam in downtown Detroit this magnificent sign was no doubt visible for many blocks in either direction. It is the second in the series of Designer Collection limited edition neon signs by the GM Heritage Center.
After an exhaustive search of the Archive produced minimum details of the sign, the research staff at the GMHC made several decisions in specifying the design of this replica. These included the color scheme, the use of neon tubes to illuminate the lettering, and the yellow bulbs that outline the sign. The original was in excess of 40 feet tall. The reproduction has been scaled to 12 feet in height with approximately the same portions. The overall result is a truly unique piece of automotive memorabilia that would enhance any car collection or garage.
