West-Wind Motel

Old school neon sign in West Chicago, Illinois. It still looks pretty good, and the glass is all intact, but I don't think it's lit up anymore (at least, I haven't seen it turned on in recent memory).

Too bad-it looks pretty good lit up. You can see it for a few seconds in the film "The Blues Brothers"-the West Wind is the motel Twiggy* is waiting at, near the end of the film.
