As many of you know by now we are raising money to restore the iconic Greetings from Austin mural on the side of our building. You can find out more about the story of the mural, and how to donate here . We dug up some old photos of the Austin Mural when it was brand new in 1998. As you can see in two of the photos the Roadhouse Relics Gallery wasn’t even finished at the time.

In fact here we didn’t even have a roof.

Also recently some one sent us this video of two guys riding around South Austin in the ’80’s. You can see what Roadhouse Relics looked like at the 4:25 mark.
