    This is a great detail shot! It’s sad to see the first Wendy’s turn into just another derelict old storefront…I mean, wouldn’t someone at Wendy’s headquarters like to see it turned into a museum, at the very least?

    I was craving a Wendy’d burger last week, it’s a shame how they just folded up into oblivion overnight everywhere.

    They had great chili and shakes too.

    Thanks, Greg! It is sad – I always thought it was something to be proud of, that it was still there, plugging along, and dammit, they should have taken more pride in it.

    The saddest thing is that it kind of *was* a museum and they still did this.

    Heh, karswell, the food was damn good, wasn’t it?
