How many times did we both drive past that intersection on the way back and forth from WIU with no clue about what historical significance it had at the time?

I don't recall who told me this but I heard Little Hoss is getting put back to its original Royal Plum livery. Anybody have updates or pics?

Helping to keep the name of Chevrolet competitive was Fred Gibb’s dealership in the small town of LaHarpe, IL.
