Just curious. What is your driver of your thought process of what your looking for, what you would add or not add to your collection ? (Example)- right now I am trying to complete a "Full Service Island " I like red so I chose Texaco. I have a original restored Beennett 766 in Fire Chief, a Eco 97 original and restored, a oil can rack I converted from a old battery rack with a dozen or so repop Texaco oil cans and a few original oil spouts. Currently working to restore a original Island lightpost and I have several signs and flyers some are real and some aren't. Looking to add a few old water cans and maybe a repop bullet trash can. When I get done it will look like you could drive up and get whatever fuel,water , air or service you would need. I am just curious of your thoughts. To me Original or repop if I like it thats all that matters. My long range plan is to make it look complete and add in original stuff as I find it or can afford it. I keep it all in my Office at work, the job gets a bit stressful at times so I can kick my feet on the desk, stare at the Island and drift away.

Right now i'm looking for painted tin signs that have been used & well loved. Not sure why i'm liking them so much might be because they are usually cheap. The tin signs are usually older & didn't seem to last.

I just recently picked up these 3 signs:







They are not all petro related but I'm not fussy Just liken the well worn tin signs.

Hey Rockman. We have a good show here in Alabama. It is the Dry Creek Farm Gas, Oil, and Advertising Swap Meet July 9 & 10 in Susan Moore, Alabama. You can find a lot of gas and oil stuff to help complete your collection. I don't know where you are from in the Southeast, but come on to Sweet Home Alabama for a good show and a great time. You'll enjoy it.
