Congrats Ladybug, That is a cool looking building and caught the design of a googie building perfectly.

Great job, Ladybug. I would have entered, but I am rather terrified of CFE. It is a gorgeous build!

Ladybug53 won by default because everyone saw her design, threw up their hands and said "No point! She's won!"
Absolutely fabulous build

Nice job ladybug on this build!  I love what you did with the roof.  That must have been really tricky.  I love the 50's retro vibe it gives off.  When looking at your diner, I feel that I can take a break from driving and grab a burger from your diner on my way across Route 66! :)
