Troy,

We live on the water in Clear Lake Shores, but we keep most of our cars and signs at our place in country. House took a big hit on the first floor. No damage to any of the stuff in the photos above, however, one of my favorite cars was at the house when Hurricane Ike came through. Our 1932 Ford Coupe, along with 3 other vehicles that we lost. However, the coupe is well on its way to being completely restored and back on the road soon.

Again, thanks for all the nice comments.

Just got the coupe back from the paint shop. Ready to be reassembled and back on the road. Had the whole car disassembled and started over from the frame up. Hope to finish in the next couple months and get back to signs.

Now all you guys know how I feel with my "collection" of one pump and 2 globes!
Great collection Matthew, thanks for the pics. I havent seen a Dog N Suds sign since I lived in Rochester, NY. I thought it was a fairly regional and small chain. Did they have them in CA? Do they still exist?

Been over a year since posting any pictures of new stuff. Here are a couple updates. Finally got the gas station together and about to start the final prep work and get her painted. Still have never found a picture of one of these pre-fab buildings. Any help any of you may have would be appreciated.

Recently bought a porcelain billboard sign from the family that had the Grand Prize Beer distributorship near Houston. This is supposedly the only billboard sign that Howard Hughes had made for his Grand Prize Beer company. It was located off old Hwy 90 towards Richmond/Rosenberg leaving Houston and had both flashing and neon lights, that really lit up the sky. The sign is 22 feet long by 9 feet tall. Huge, but a one of a kind.

Also found an Ford A1 sign.

Came across this old post recently. My wife says 4000 sq.feet full of signs and 5 cars are to much I feel dwarfed by this.
