This is one of the best looking clocks I have ever seen. I photographed this one at Columbus about 3 years ago.

Here is a couple clocks from my collection. First is an original Cleveland neon clock from an old service station in Mexico, MO:

Second is a 100% original Chevrolet neon clock I got years ago from a closed Chevrolet dealership in Drumright, OK on my way to Seth's auction:

Every one sees this clock as my avatar when I post something but thought I'd share it again. This clock came from an Original Cities Service dealership in Oslo, Minnesota and was sold to Oslo Steve by the descendants of that original ownership, and he subsequently sold it to me! It had never been used and came in its original, dated box! Nicest clock I own!

I know this is a common clock but this is the story behind it. This clock hung in the instrument shop of the Frontier refinery where I worked for many years. It quit working. One morning I was walking down to the main shop for the weekly safety meeting from the machine shop where I worked and it was laying on the floor. I asked the supervisor what was going to happen to it. He asked; Do you want it. I said yes. He said get it to h#ll out of here. Come to find out two of the instument guys were fighting over it I was the solution. That was about 15 yrs. ago. It was my first petro collectable and started this wild expensive journey. Mitch
