Long Description:
The Drive in Launching Pad Restaurant is up for sale. I hope the Gemini Giant, remains the most photographed resident of Wilmington.

"A fiberglass giant is outfitted for space travel, clutching a rocket far too small for his size. The burger-hot dog-ice cream Launching Pad Drive-In has served Route 66 since 1960." Text Source: (visit link)
