Chevy 'bow-tie' sign comes down | News
GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) - What might be Grand Haven's biggest and tallest sign was cut from its foundation and lowered to the ground Tuesday. The "bow-tie" Chevrolet sign at Gage Motor Mall went up in 1965 along U.S. 31. The dealership is believed to own one of two in existence.
Gage Service Director John Menard says the sign still works, but it needs major repairs. The sign would not meet current sign zoning. However earlier this year Grand Haven city leaders granted the sign "landmark" status.
The sign is 10 feet tall, 34 feet long, and sits around 50 feet in the air. Postema Sign and Graphics will make the needed repairs at a Grand Rapids shop. The company will fit the sign with new neon lights and new porcelain. It may go back up at Gage Motor Mall in Grand Haven in April.
