Hello everyone does anyone have a Sinclair oil dinosaur approx 8' x 4' made of fiberglass for sale at a reasonable price as I need it for our local junior museum for the kids to play on? I believe there was one at Dixie gas as it is on the front cover of Scotts October Petroleum Collectibles! Please email me at dflaat@msn.com thanks Dan

There was a giant green dinosaur,(very much like a Sinclair design),nearly fitting those exact measurements at Peotone today.
I don't know the seller,but he's in that same spot every time,and everyone who was there today saw it/touched it.
He was in the middle room,between the two main buildings so it was a highly trafficed spot and was still there when I left at noon.
I'm sure someone took a picture of it,and it will most likely appear in the shows recap later on.

Carl Mantegna had one at Evansville in May. It sounds like it might be him at Peotone. Pat.



Looking for early Pure Oil Company items(Energee,Detonox,Puritan)as well as any Woco Pep items.

Looking for graphic quart cans for my collection.

Depending on the mood of curator, it is surprising what you can trade out of a museum. I have done some good trading.
