Save Our Balls

One of the Last Remaining 76 Balls
One of the last remaining iconic "76" gas station ball signs posts proudly at the corner of Glendale Blvd. and Glenhurst Ave. in Atwater Village. Little did I know the thing spins. From savethe76ball.com:
"Earlier today, Nathan and I were interviewed for a new automotive-themed television series called Black Top, with the 76 Ball on Glendale Boulevard in Atwater Village as the backdrop. The number 76 was not quite in the shot, and Nathan suggested he might go ask the station manager to set the ball spinning. Much to our shock and delight, the manager agreed, and by throwing just one switch gave the sign a much needed jolt of kinetic energy."
UPDATE: They won! Read more at Score One for the 76 Balls.
