Originating at Ugly Duckling Car Sales on East Fremont Street, the sign greeted motorists and passersby, becoming a well-known landmark. The roadside pylon dates back to the 1990s and conjures nostalgia for many Las Vegas locals. The Ugly Duckling has been present at the Boneyard since the Neon Museum’s grand opening in October 2012 and is now located close to the entrance of the boneyard next to the La Concha motel sign.

FAST FACTS:

  • The restoration took approximately 136-man hours to complete.
