Today at 04:59 PM Hayes Visible - Restored to Union Oil by dfranchi

A ways back my wife went to an auction near Paso Robles, CA, and came home with an anniversary
present --- a Hayes visible. She's been after me for several years to restore it. For the
purists, I suspect it never looked like this originally, but it was also never intended to end
up in our family room.

Globe and cylinder are originals.

Many thanks to Frank Jones for the paint job, and overall restoration. Also, Ron Scobie,
for casting the bonnet, and Mike Slama for the decal.

Thanks to Dick Bennett, who had me over to his house years ago, and showed me the workings
of his Hayes 15 gallon, helped me with the color scheme from old photos, and the price to
pay for the cylinder.

Close up detail of Frank's work:

Today at 04:46 PM Mobil Pegasus bronze/brass? on marble. by carolinaskies

OK, this is one for you Mobilgas experts. I was at an upscale flea market and a fellow had a brass/bronze pegasus mounted to a marble base. He was told it belonged to one of the VIP Corporate guys from the 50s-70s, Rawleigh Warner Jr. It was acquired through a NY auction house. {{I will post a picture of the piece when I get it off my camera.}}

Anyways, from the basic internet searches I identified that it wasn't one of the pegasus used for the ashtray as it is substantially larger.

Has anyone ever seen finely executed Mobil Pegasus statues that were presentations pieces to executives?

Today at 04:29 PM Room to Room vending prohibited... by Goober's Station

I would like to get some opinions on here from some Old Gassers...Would you still attend a show even if the hotel refused to allow room to room swap at night? Let's just say there would be extended hours into the evening for buying and selling in a Ballroom instead. Thanks for your input folks. Your thoughts, and GO....

Today at 11:12 AM TEXACO BIG FRIENDS by Agent_M

I am collecting and looking to verify information about Texaco Big Friends -> A close friend of mine has a large private collection of Petroliana and Automotive signs and has passed a number of items onto me. One of the pieces that I am looking for more info on is this head from a Texaco Big Friendly statue.

I know that they were made by International Fiberglass and Texaco commissioned 300 statues to be built with plans of making a total of around 3,000 in the mid 1960's. Then, due to a lawsuit, the 300 that were produced were ordered to be destroyed... Only a few were known to survive at that time and currently I can only verify the existence of two possible surviving pieces besides this head.

Joe from usagiants.com has been an awesome help so far. Looking forward to see what else I can find out about this piece. THANKS!

Today at 11:02 AM Gas Station Economics question by Steve C.

Just something I've wondered about and don't understand.
I've heard it stated both on this site and somewhere else in life, that the stations/station owners don't make but a couple cents a gallon on gasoline sales. And that they make their money from the convenience store aspects of the locations/business.
First, is this true?
Second, if there is no money in Gasoline sales, how is it that the petroleum companies, Exxon-Mobil for example, are worth and make billions?
What am I missing?
