One legged baton twirling

She's about 60 years old, four stories tall, weighs about 3,500 pounds, and from the looks of her now, she could use some attention to her leg. She is the Neon Majorette, modeled after a San Diego State University drum majorette, and once the icon of the Campus Drive-In Theater. After the drive-in closed she moved around a bit then ended up at the College Grove Center shopping mall where she actively twirls her baton. Click here for a detailed history and here for a story and photos of the old drive-in by someone that worked there.

Felicia, that picture looked SO cool on the portal and now even better here. Not bad for 60, eh? :)

I think she looks quite well for her age!
