Old Taco Bell, New Use
Do you model the contemporary period, and have a Summit Custom Cuts Taco Bell that no longer looks modern? Here's a simple transition that still incorporates the style, but brings the building up to the current era.
2 years ago I happened upon this former Taco Bell, on El Cajon BLVD in San Diego. It clearly matches the prototype used for the Summit Custom Cuts building.
Conversion of this structure just requires the printing of new signs! The colors are the same, albeit a little weathered and faded.
While it's not imperative to replicate this business exactly, one could model any number of drive through businesses. A doughnut shop, local coffee shop, local taco shop (ironic, but it happens), or even drive through pizza place!
