During the renovations at Clifton's in Los Angeles, they pulled down a wall and found a neon light that was burning.  It was on 24 hours a day for how many years, they don't really know.
 
It just might be the longest burning neon light in the world.

Another example of how old things work so much better than new things!

I have an 18" neon light over the kitchen sink that has burned for at least 14 years. We've never turned it off since we moved into the house. The fixture is probably from 1986 when the house was built.

It's a wonder that it didn't burn the place down!
After reading the article, it sounds like it's going to be a show stopper when it's renovated! Will be interesting to see it!
