Howard Johnson's

Howard Johnson's . . . I like seeing my Grandpa's name - this chain doesn't have anything to do with him but it's still fun.
Classic Americana Summer - road tripping and delight upon seeing the "Host of the Highway" /  "Landmark for Hungry Americans". Or just piling the kids in the station wagon and heading to the local Orange Roof for ice cream, "The Wonderful World of 28 Flavors".  I saw a post on Go Retro about the last remaining free-standing HoJo restaurant and wanted to share these retro ads.
