Today at 01:26 AM One year anniversary of Dick Bennett's passing by Don Beaver

Today is the one year anniversary of Dick Bennett's passing

I remember one of the first times we talked about 15 years ago he had seen me post on old gas using my initials "db" he said that those were his and I should not use them on old gas we both laughed pretty good on that one. I don't think I ever did use my initials again.


I was digging through some emails tonight and found this one that he sent me just a couple of hours before his passing.

August 28th 5:54 pm

Dick wrote: Have been very Short winded for couple of weeks & in-between ins. coverage. Medicare starts on Monday & will get in for tests.
Hopefully they can get it figured out


I Wrote: Uncle db what the heck is this short winded thing? You been smoking to much??


He replied: The short winded started just after I Quit smoking. I have been cutting
back over the last year. Use to smoke 1-2 pk a day.


I replied: Let me know about your doctor visit and what you find out.

Yesterday at 10:06 PM SOHIO Quart Glass Oil Bottle and Spout. Excellent. by Jolly-John

This in an excellent condition, SOHIO 20W quart glass oil bottle and spout. The SOHIO logo is fired-on (not a decal or painted) the bottle. The spout is a completely-undented Master. It is the tall version of the Master spout, so it is good proportion to the glass bottle itself. No chips or problems.

The price is $125, plus shipping. Your personal or business check, or a money order are welcomed for payment. Thanks. John

Yesterday at 09:50 PM Stoll VISCOYL Quart Glass Oil Bottle. Very Good. by Jolly-John

This is a very good condition, VISCOYL S.A.E. 10 quart glass oil bottle. VISCOYL was the marketing brand of Stoll Oil Refining Co., headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky.

NOTE: I slipped some white plastic foam into the oil bottle, so the logo imprint would photograph properly. The bottle is clear glass, as you'd expect.

Very good condition, fired-on graphics on both sides. The bottle also has these fired-on words in orange letters running vertically on the bottle (not shown in the photos): "One Quart- Fill to Glass Ring", with a VISCOYL arrow logo pointing to the ring on the bottle.

No chips or problems. Comes with a excellent condition, Parbee Pump & Mfg., St. Louis, MO. oil spout and cap.

The price is $150, plus shipping. Your personal or business check, or a money order are welcomed for payment. Thanks for looking. John

Yesterday at 08:20 PM Holiday StationStores Coin Bank. 1960's, 1970's? by Jolly-John

Here's an NOS Holiday Discount StationStores coin bank. Great graphics and color, with the two elephants depicting "BIG SAVINGS". Based in Minneapolis, the Holiday stores were very popular here in the Midwest. They sold everything from gas and oil to beach balls to live bait...to ammo for your .22. I believe this bank dates to the mid-1960's and into the 1970's. I'd certainly welcome any specific dating info from the gang here on Old Gas.

Measures 4-3/4" high by 2-5/8" in diameter. Very strong colors. This bank has a few minor paint marks, but certainly appears to be NOS. Displays very well.

The price is $46, plus shipping. Your personal or business check or a money order are welcomed for payment. Thanks for looking. John

Yesterday at 08:02 PM Two Eco Air Meters by SignCouple21411

Up for sale are two awesome vintage Eco air meters. One is a wall mount unit and the other is a pedestal mount with the hard to find water spigot flange. These units are in great shape with the frames having been sandblasted on both of them. Some surface rust has appeared on a few pieces but there is absolutely no rust through on any pieces at all. A couple pieces have some minor rust pitting but the metal is solid. I tried to capture this in the photos. These units have been disassembled as I was going to restore them but never got around to it. All of the pieces are there except that the wall mount unit is missing the actual wall mount bracket. The pedestal mount was also repaired on the base a long time ago as it was under multiple layers of paint. All the pieces that haven't been sandblasted were not cleaned at all so I imagine the grease and oil will come off easily. The chrome pieces will definitely need a rechroming if you want to restore them to showroom condition. The first four photos are of the wall mount unit and the second four are of the pedestal mount unit. These units could be delivered to Dixie Gas as long as they are paid in full before the show. Asking 900 for the pedestal mount and 800 for the wall mount. If someone would like both pieces feel free to make an offer on both items. Thanks a lot and have a great day!

Yesterday at 06:54 PM Red Indian Signs at Shackleton Auction - Sat 19th by Oil King

For those of you looking for some mid grade Red Indian signs, there are 3 of them coming up at the Shackleton Auction this weekend. Here is the link to Proxibid showing all lots. With the weaker Canadian dollar I would imagine your US dollar goes a long ways on the buy and helps to negate the 15% buyers fee and shipping to the USA. Pretty good auction house from what I have heard.
