Forgot to post that one. Scott's right as Texaco is the only metal one I have ever seen. They do show up but are hard to find in nice shape. Bill.

Bill. You've done a great job on this. I guess we owe a special thanks to Hawkike too. AND all the other contributors.

Thanks for the comments and my appreciation to all of those who have contributed. The weather limited my internet access for most of the last 24 hours but I'm back up now. Will be adding some more tomorrow to finish up the topic.
