who remembers FELIX CHEVROLET?

when i was a little boy i would beg my father to take me here, only because they had statues of FELIX THE CAT!  my dad would never take me here because he was a "ford man."
I used to watch that cartoon everyday after school. i loved felix and his bag of trix, the professor, rock bottom, even master cylinder- a robot.


after many months, if not years of begging, my dad finally relented and took me to felix chevrolet. although we did not get out of the car. we only did a drive by, because he was a "ford man."

well that was in the 60s. now today on feb 3rd, 2015~ i finally fulfilled my dream and walked into FELIX CHEVROLET!
it was amazing to see the original felix the cat statues. i'd heard the had sold one or two awhile ago for allot of $$. they are most def collectors items and have signs that say, "don't touch."

unfortunately the statues are the only thing left that's original. everything else has been modernized, but they still have felix memorabilia. i got a felix chevrolet t-shirt! i will wear it tomorrow for tea @ antebellum. everyone will be jealous.
