If you had to pick your favorite/best can from your stuff which one would it be? Hopefully we can get a bunch of photos of some top end cans on this thread. It's mid winter, everybody take some time and post a pic, it's never been easier on oldgas.
I'll start, an early Marathon VEP can that you don't see very often in this condition.

Not the best pic, but it's too cold(whiner) to go out to the shop and snap another. Not a primo can, but the only one I've seen in years here in MS.

These are Not My Best or Most Valuable Cans in My Collection, But probably my Favorites just Because of the Cool Race Car Graphics. Come on Can Collectors I know there are alot of you out there in Oldgas Land lets see some Cans. Great Idea for a Showcase Topic. smile

I am not much of a can collector but I do have a few. This 5 quart is probably my best, then this handy oiler.
