Pyroil and Dri-Powr Display - Sat Sep 23 2017 07:15 PM

In the last couple of months, since I stumbled upon an image of a 1930s Pyroil Gas Station that operated for a period of time, in the Los Angeles area. I have been working to make myself a display of "early" Pyroil Additive items. (circa 1932-1950s) (photo of that Station is above the lower shelf cans)

I sold all of my early Whiz Automotive Product tins and used the room (and money) to put together this Pyroil Display...



During this time, I found myself with an empty shelf. So a Dri-Powr display was put together, at the same time. Thanks to Kirby (DaysPast); the last Dri-Powr tin found its spot in the display, today...



I "dream" of someday, adding one more Pyroil Can to the display; a Pyroil B Aviation can. A Pyroil A Aviation can was added to the display, this week...

But, isn't it; the "hunt" what keeps us interested?

Nice. I have always liked Pyroils cans they have a nice art deco look to them. I would imagine the Aviation ones are difficult to get.

Very cool display, Bob! Thanks for posting those pics.

And I agree with you. It is the hunt that keeps us interested and makes this hobby so enjoyable.

Great job Bob, looks great! How long did it take you to collect all of these for your display?

Thought I would show the updated version of the Pyroil Display... I do believe that I am about finished with it... (still need a "square" 3oz. Pyroil A bottle, but maybe in the future)
