Wow. Just wow. Is there a story behind that? It looks as though a coat of paint might be a good idea.

Yardbirds Home Center is a defunct chain of home improvement stores based in Petaluma, California, United States. Their trademark colors were yellow and white. Their mascot was a white buzzard with yellow overalls. These stores were not affiliated with the Yard Birds stores based out of Chehalis, Washington that used a black bird with a yellow beak as its mascot.

Never seen that one before but I like these roadside oddities.
I remember a giant lobster up in New Brunswick that made me smile

Neat picture. This was back before the mega-chains when we had regional chains or independent stores with character. When did those companies go out of business?

Interesting bit of history there. Like so many, I have heard the name all my life associated mostly with wood and paper products. I didn't realize they were in so many other markets.

I lived near there 91-93. Remember Yardbirds as all kinds of stuff for sale, some good, some chinese cheapo. That store and just about everything else flooded in 90 and 94 or thereabouts. Chehalis-Centrailia, Longview-Kelso, twin towns, North and twin towns, South. Longview-Kelso observed to be, during our stay, to have the LONGEST duration traffic lights known to man!

You need to ride your scoot to McMinnville, OR to the Evergreen Aviation Museum to see the largest airplane ever and it is made of WOOD! My sheetmetal aviation shop was at the Toledo, WA airport.
