The Partridge Family’s garage. If the I-76 sign is a repro, they went to a lot of effort.

In the early seasons the I-76 shield was a fake black on white!

It would have been more appropriate if it had been an I-70 shield since Shirley Jones is from Smithton (Exit 49).

In the Jaws movie, following the pond/estuary attack scene (the severed leg); one does see the Massachusetts-style bookleaf town-line sign in the distance at 1:35 in the below-movie-clip (Brody running to the estuary to save his son).  It's tough to read, but based on the mapping; the sign is located at the Edgartown/Oaks Bluff border.  The bridge is referred to as the Jaws Bridge

Not a highway sign, however there's a mention of I-67 in this Garfield strip.

Saw this old fashioned stop sign at Warner Bros. Studios in "Blazing Saddles."
