|A Howard Johnson's restaurant|
When I was real young, there was a Howard Johnson's restaurant near where we lived. The building looked so different and the orange/blue motif caught my eye every time we drove past it. A few years ago I learned that Howard Johnson's had their own line of soda back in the 1970's. I instantly fell in love with the orange/blue retro design of the logo on the cans.

And then a couple of years ago I entered a bidding war on eBay for a set of Howard Johnson's cans. After some intense key pressing, I was unfortunately outbid.
But today I finally found a HoJo can out in the wild. I hesitated to buy it because what if I find another set for sale and end up with two ginger ale cans? But then I realized I wouldn't have a collection if I based my collecting on "what if," so I bought the can and now I can finally say I have a Howard Johnson's can in my collection.
