I was biking the Prairie Path through Maywood when I noticed a small building at 1300 - 1400 S. 5th ave. with a "Winged Wheel" logo on it. I have to believe it was for a car dealership or gas station. Any one recognize this?

It seems like they were common on buildings with automotive purposes. Chrysler and Harley-Davidson used winged wheel logos, although the one you photographed looks more like the Red Wings' logo (with a different spoke pattern).
