Long Description:
One of many jewels of old Route 66 in Amarillo TX, the former Arrow Motel was located near the 1929 US Government Helium Plant, which was decommissioned decades ago. Now this visually exciting sign (which could use some TLC) hawks used cars at 2707 W Amarillo Blvd (AKA Business Route 40).
