Yesterday at 11:51 PM restore or leave as is?? by hotrodfun1

Do I restore or leave as is. I was not thinking new paint buy not sure now after the first light cleaning and finding that the white paint is only house paint and is coming off as you can see it was yellow. What you think? And can anybody tell me why the globe top is cut like a wavy on the top? Thanks

Yesterday at 06:30 PM Falcon oil can top lid markings by buzzy56

Need a oil can expert on Falcon quart oil cans. I purchased a Falcon quart oil can on ebay. The top lid on the can in the listing was stamped SAE 20. The bottom lid was stamped with a large letter "C" .
The can I recieved was plain on the top lid and had the "C " on the bottom lid.The can looks real to the best of my knowledge.
Were these cans re-popped ? Or is this just a re-lid that I have ? I will take a pic and post it .
Thanks Bob first time I have run into this.

Yesterday at 06:01 PM Research help by Tenalquot


I'm a historical researcher looking for some info/advice. I'm researching a former Richfield service station site in Renton, WA. I've been through all the public records I can think of (tax records, assessor's photos, recorded agreements, etc) but I'm wondering if anyone here knows about other sources of information.

Specifically, I'm curious about the nature of the relationship between the people who operated the station and Richfield Oil. Did Richfield just own the station itself? Or was the agreement between the manager and Richfield as an exclusive supplier?

The property records say the land was never owned by Richfield nor are there any recorded agreements between Richfield and the property owners or the managers.

I'm stumped! Thanks in advance for any help/ideas.

Also- enjoying looking around here! Great forum!

Yesterday at 04:27 PM Veeder Root Computer question by Vintage Hunter

Hello everyone!
I collect a variety of vintage items and do collect various gas memorabilia.
I do have a few questions but will tackle them one at a time right now.
First,I have acquired several Veeder Root mechanical computers. I am not all that familiar with them.
The one set I have I would appreciate any help on this.
Thhis particular computer is marked "The Head For Figures" with the last patent date of 1962. It seems to say it is a model number of 575,517.
What gas pumps were these originally used in? How long were these computers used,till about what year?
I would appreciate any info on this.Thanks,Ray
