The largest figural neon in Los Angeles, the Felix Chevrolet sign pylon and auto showroom were recently granted with official monument status. Although the owner of the place is upset that this designation will hinder if not prevent his long-range plans to demolish the dealership for apartment housing, I sincerely think the city of Los Angeles is better served with Felix than without.
UPDATE — The sign and showroom's monument status was denied. The owner still wishes to demolish the property for mid-rise housing and without the hinderance of monument status, there's nothing in his way.
