What a lot of great stuff guys, love those Frontier globes. And Peter is right, we need to think about happier times right now.

What are those globe lenses in the Grass in the very first picture?

My favorite picture and story. My son, the farmer, his dog, and the pump. We went on a trip to Idaho to pickup some stuff with my old Mazda B2000 pickup with no radio. Picked up stuff over there and on the way back had spoken to a man about a Wayne three light pump. He wanted way too much but I wanted to take a picture anyway. My truck was already almost on the rubber bumper on the axle and when I pulled up told my son we were going home with that pump. Mind you it was still hooked up and we had to spend 2 1/2 hrs watching the dog do tricks including walking up a ladder. Finally went into the house where the farmer asked his wife if he could sell the pump. IMMORTAL words from here, Honey it's your gas pump. When he said ok, the money I swear jumped out of my pocket. Unloaded the whole truck and had to lay the pump down and then stack the other pumps and stuff ontop. Now we were really rubber bumpers all the way back to Portland and the truck would not go over 50 with that little four cylinder motor. He told me that he gave the globe to one of his cousins, it was a Rainbow. My son will be 40 later this year.

Great stories and treasure's . I got this Frontier sign up in Border Wyoming years ago with my friends Jim Oswald and Kent Swensen . Had to hire a front end loader with forks to get it down . We got it all the way back safely and set it in my back yard with a crain . Lucky to get it both front and back signs are pristine.

Yes great stories and nice stuff. "Modern" day picking as opposed to this historical stuff from back in the day, goes some thing like this; pick up cell phone, dial number for buddy. Talking to buddy "hey do you have a such and such? Uh huh. Well how about a whatchamacall it?" Ok, so what do you have? How much? Ok, do you do pay pal? Uh huh, yes I know cash is king but I dont like carrying 20K in small bills across the country, it makes me feel like a drug dealer. Oh, alright then, so is that in 10s or 50s?"
Nothing romantic in that. No camaraderie, no thrill of the chase, no stories of hair raising drives. It's almost too sterile now. So keep the stories coming it's going to be long 2 weeks till the end of May!
Thanks guys.

This neon came out of a small town by Spokane Wa...I used to go to the swap meet there every year and would go a couple days early trying to
fill the truck before the swap meet in case there was nothing to buy there.
Went into an old building that looked to be a dealership at one time. Asked if there might be any old signs for sale. Follow me, down the street
to an old shed, with no windows left, pigeon ***** everywhere, there on the dirt floor was this Ford neon. NOT for sale as he was going to put it
up on the building with his old cars. OK then...I would come back and visit every year before the swap meet. Five years later.
Hell, I'm never going to put it up, Talked with the wife and we will sell it to you. Rest is history. Loaded it in the truck, pigeon ***** and all.
Plugged it in, all original neon, works like a charm, mint condition as he had plexiglass all around it cause the darn kids might throw rocks at it
back in the day when it was up at his dealership.
