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

I found these two clocks in the basement of a old Napa store. Store had been a auto parts store since the late 1940's.

grin grin grin Drove 200 miles to pick up a pump today and remembered a clock I had made an offer on 2 years ago, and it was on the way back! I stopped in and they still didn't want to sell, so I raised the ante a little and he suddenly remembered he had ANOTHER ONE out in the warehouse! Well, it wasn't anywhere near the condition of the one on the wall, so I got it a lot cheaper with the promise that I could buy the other one when the time comes!
Worth the stop because its cleaning up very nicely and everything works great!! grin grin grin Always stop back is my motto!!!

Picked this up a few years back. Been running perfect ever since. Only seen one other like it at St. Charles show last year. Anyone familiar with this company?

Spots are glare. Only small chip at bottom of the six.

This is one of my favorites. Sure, it's aluminum and plastic, but it is a rare combination of my two collecting interests of gas station and body shop memorabilia. Still haven't found a Mobil auto paint can to go with this clock.

Here is a round Bardahl Man clock. It is not lighted and has the glass crimped in a one piece aluminum body. I have one of the square Pam Bardahl clocks shown earlier in this topic. Those came in lighted and flatter, not lighted versions.

I got the Zephyr diamond Pam clock from Brad before he became "gasoildude" on Shop Talk.

This one was an estate sale find by my dad, right down the street from his house.




Here's a Conoco office clock. It had the self-setting mechanism (set to 12:00 by remote). I brought it to an old clock guy to get the hands aligned, and instead he stripped that feature out of it and added a set knob. The hands still don't line up. Grrr.
