View of the Felix Chevrolet/Cadillac dealership on the corner of Figueroa St. and Jefferson Blvd. A huge neon sign showing the cartoon character, Felix the Cat, pointing to the words "Felix" sits on the rooftop and can easily be seen from any and every angle. William B. Felix, the original founder of Felix Chevrolet/Cadillac, asked his good friend Pat Sullivan, comic book publisher of the cartoon character, for permission to use the famous black cat to advertise his dealership. The letters in "Felix" are almost 15 feet tall. Photo dated: November 2, 2005.
