When That Clock Strikes...


Mac Tonight (1987)
As much as I loved Ronald and the gang when I was growing up, my favorite thing about McDonald's in the 80's was Mac Tonight.  I found this translite on eBay and my grandfather and I built a backlit box to enclose it.  It's now hanging on the wall next to my desk.  It plugs into an electrical outlet and turns on through a toggle switch.  Seeing it always cheers me up.

My Desk


You can't really see it too well in this picture, but the lighted box on the wall next to my desk is a McDonald's Mac Tonight translite sign.  My grandfather and I built a lighted box for it.  The light shining behind the sign gives it a 3-D effect.
