Pep Boys Statues Hit History Channel


The Pep Boys auto aftermarket chain was featured in History Channel’s “American Restoration.” The episode, titled “Tall Order,” shows host Rick Dale restoring a special 80-year-old fiberglass and plaster marquee statue of founders Manny, Moe & Jack that once stood atop a Pep Boys store dating as far back as the 1930’s.

Following the episode, the Manny, Moe & Jack statues will finish their 90th anniversary trip across country to Los Angeles, CA. where they are to reside as a donation from Pep Boys to the permanent collection of the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Pep Boys also celebrated its 90th anniversary by ringing the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange and induction to the Route 66 Cruisin’ Hall of Fame in San Bernardino, Calif. The company is also in the process of donating a series of collectible memorabilia to the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C.
