L.A. News: Felix the Cat Sign Update

According to the latest issue of the Daily Trojan, Darryl Holter, the owner of Felix Chevrolet, has agreed to donate the Felix the Cat Sign and "any portion of the dealership" to the famed Petersen Automotive Museum.

This seems like an excellent alternative to having the building and sign declared a cultural and historic monument, freezing future development plans for the dealership site at Jefferson and Figueroa in Los Angeles.

Here's a new photo I snapped of the Felix the Cat sign yesterday:

You can click to enlarge. It's slightly blurry as it was taken from a moving car.

That's USC's new Galen Center in the background behind the sign.
