If your signs are clearly marked "old style" and "vintage" then that's wonderful. If you are referring to your listing on ebay then you are the one talking in riddles dude.

"Everybody else is doing it"....can't tell you how often I heard that one from my kids. No matter how hard you try to spin it or twist the argument you will find very little support here.

I'm checking out on this discussion, it's painfully obvious nobody here will get through to you.

Thanks for your participation in this topic here on oldgas.

Doug,

Don't have an answer for you on the Texaco Aircraft sign other than the fact its a real sign that I bid on and paid "Real Sign Money" for it in an auction and so did many other experienced bidders against me. They all felt it was a real sign as well.

To be honest with you, someone is going to win that great sign other than you guys because you have shut yourself out of the opportunity. You cannot say with any facts the sign is not 100% genuine.

What have you done about your TEXACO AIRCRAFT SIGN AUCTION ? NOTHING !!!

KZ1000 was making his own comments, where do you get off stating he's speaking for "all" members ?

Change your habits, maybe then you might get some respect !!!

Marked, no exceptions. (On the item, not just advertised as such.) Have a lot more that I'd like to say, but it's like beating a dead horse and you just won't get through to some people, especially when there is money to be made. Greed is a terrible thing.

You guys remind me of the old bearded "Harley Riders" (almost gone now) that refuse to realize that you can ride a bike that dose not drop bolts on the highway or have to sling oil all over other riders! [/quote]
I have a beard, a 65 Harley that leaks oil and I think you make unmarked repo garbage. No reason not to mark your signs other than $$$$$, I'm sure you realize that you have more of a market if you don't date your items. Then the unscrupulous buyers can flip them to the ignorant, everyone in your circle wins, woo hoo. Don't really get your continuous baiting on this site. You keep stating the same thing over and over but ignore questions asked of you, for example, are your signs licensed by the companies represented?

Mike Mas, your quote, "Read my Lips - All our signs are clearly marked "Old Style" for modern signs and "Vintage" for original signs. In over a thousand feedbacks there is not one complaint - so you need to move on to a valid subject!" might be fine for the person buying directly off ebay.... what people are worried about is the next buyer who does not know it WAS marketed as old style. Stamping into the sign (flange) would help. Yes there are repro signs I think are cool because I could never afford a real version but I end up biting my lip and waiting because (see my post of patience) someone (a non-collector) will list a real one not knowing its real list it with a buy it now. I only pray that I am the first one to see it and realize what it is. LOL LOL John
