    Wow, there's a blast from the past. I remember this well. Some relatives held the land lease on this parcel for years. I think McD's corp or the franchisee (can't remember which) finally bought the land from them in the 1980s when the remodel/rebuild was done.

    Today's McD's all look so boring by comparison.

    Ate my first McDonald's burger, fries and small drink at this one!
