I recently purchased some property that has a two car garage in poor condition. I was planing to tear it down. But when I went inside... surprise!

Why is this exterior wall looking so weird?

Well... I will let the pictures do the talking.

Depending on the condition & rarity of the cans, just might be enough there to Pay for a new garage.

If you dig out that Veedol High Detergency can and it has the white lettering and a "Flying V" logo, I will know where they all went. LOL

I would like to find a garage like that!

That looks familiar.

Have fun with the careful deconstruction on that gold mine.

Early recycling like that was also done here in the southwest only with adobe mud. Some of you may remember seeing these in an earlier post, but I thought I would share them again.

Too many years ago and I can't remember all the details, but a guy showed up at the Columbia, MO show in Jan, years ago with some very rare cans. It seems he found them in a nursery where they were using them to start plants. He found cases of cans that they had never used.

Some of you guys who have been going to "It's a Gas" for years might remember this and correct me or add to the details.

Also there was a guy who went into a oil company warehouse, around 1990, and found over 1000 handy oilers that had never been filled, along with lead tops for all of them. They were from 1938.

It was me.
