I bought one for my Mini got it in one week...Nice

Does any one know if any one else sell these? 199 bucks sound reasonable...No?

I contacted the supplier/manufacturer to see if they can make a vintage neon and add the "Milano" script. Answer was yes. I sent him a photo of the early badge. I am sure the price will increase, but I'm in for one. If enough interest maybe a group sale is possible?.

Sign ordered. 5 days to ship and up to 15 days delivery. There is an optional clear backing replacing the metal standard backing. Contact Jessee ..brilliantneonsigns.com to make sure the Milano script is included if that what you want.

I got my Mini one in 7 days. The clear backing was worth the extra 20 bucks.

Anyone ordering a sign, you'll need to specify with or without "Milano" script

I have not received the sign yet. Shipper advised up to 20 days to assemble and ship. No tracking info provided. I will post when it is received.
Cheers, Jon.

Alfa Romeo neon sign

Sign arrived today...direct from China. So we are ordering from a third party. Well packaged, about 10 days delivery from order date.
My photo doesn't shows the green serpent as well as the actual color which is closer to the photos earlier in the thread. I'm using my iPad so I guess it has something to do with it. Sign is mounted on a metal grid with a chain for hanging. On/off switch on the cord. I might have opted for the $20 additional for the acrylic backing.
I'm happy with it.
Cheers, Jon

I agree Jim. Also noticed the crown and the enemy soldier differ from the photo sent me. Looks like they showed me a "photoshop" as the one on their website is the same as the one I've received. Disappointing but I doubt only the keenest eye will notice.
Cheers Jon
