Here's to high maintenance


The Elephant Car Wash sign, between Battery Street and Denny Way in Seattle, gets attention on Monday from Stanley Park, with the Tube Art Group full-service sign company. Park said his company installed the sign in the late 1950s and has been servicing it ever since. Every few months, Park said, he's at the location replacing bulbs and neon tubes and "keeping it spinning."
