Let's see a picture of inside the roll-off dumpster.
Before sending the dumpster off, put a few of those better cans on ebay. Cans that I was throwing/walking away from are selling on ebay [don't post pictures of walls on ebay where they were found].

Please use For Sale forums to sell

Please - NO offers to Buy or Sell in this forum category

Statements such as, "I'm thinking about selling this." are considered an offer to sell.

I'll post a couple of pics of the dumpster fodder. Most everything we tossed was in very poor condition.

We're starting on the top of the final wall.
You can see they smashed the top row of cans to make the header fit.



These are the cans in the dumpster.

Have ya done a Rough estimate of how many cans were there? Could make a Guessing Contest out of that! LOL
Some of the RED/BLUE band White cans [PERMALUBE], top left in last picture look good enough to save. I'm sure some of the Newbie collectors would love to have some of the cans you consider as Junk. I realize that you can't save all & some are not worth saving.

Hope you do an article w/ pictures of your find for one or both of the Petro Magazines.

LOL
BUT, takes soo much time recovering just the lids!
Try opening a can of Tuna, W/O destroying the lid & can be re-sealed to look like it was never opened = time.

Yes. It is cement.
Some portions of the walls broke apart fairly easily, the rest hammered apart like they were made of... ahem, cement.


These cans were in the wall side-by-side. Some were nice, some were not.
We suppose that some manufacurers used a higher quality of paint than others. ie Penzoil held up the best.


The walls are finally down and all cans that were worth rescuing are in good hands.


All cleaned up. "THANK YA' JESUS" (said with gusto and a southern drawl) smile


Time permitting, I will be posting pix of some of the cans tomorrow.

At one time there must have been an article in Popular Mechanic's Magazine as there have been Several houses/garages all over the country built w/ cans/bottles [in High Desert of Calif & some in New Mexico have been discovered].

OK guys. Here's a few pix.

I saved a couple of pieces of cement that showed an imprint of the can.
These were unusual because most of the cement broke as we hammered down the walls. We called them fossils.



Here is a few of the cans. Some were one-of-a-find. Others were common.


The rest of the photos are of the same cans only a little closer.
