...already mentioned in the repro White Mule sign thread...but these guys also have a fake Gulf Marine White sign listed as of this morning:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Gulf-Gas-Oil-Marine-White-Sign-/360344906921

...the mounting holes are ridiculously small...in the description:

"About Us: We are a Family Owned Christian Based Company, Check out our feedback, We have over 18,000 Positive Feedbacks in just over 10 years of being here on E-Bay. Our track records speaks for itself."

...strange...one of their other auctions is for a "Retro Stripper Go Go girls Table Dance for Tips Sign" (320658244165)...and yes, the excerpt above is taken from THAT description as well...y'all want to have some fun: bombard them with questions about how a Christian company would be selling these!

Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

My question......This mule sign is a new reproduction....surely good "Christians" like yourself aren't trying to sell this as an old sign????????????


Their answer...."nowhere in the description is the word old mentioned".


Wonder which church they go to that condones that?

...the issue was the sign in the link in the post - the Gulf Marine White sign...the same 'about us' statement is in ALL of his auction descriptions...I posted the Stripper sign auction screen capture with the quote because I thought the irony was too much...y'know, the whole 'Golden Rule' thing?...not only are they selling fake White Mule signs and fake Gulf Marine White signs - they're also selling Stripper signs...

...Doc - my point was, this seller makes a point of stating that he believes in a pretty well-defined code of moral values (to appeal to like-minded individuals, or to seem more trustworthy), then sells undated fakes and stripper signs...it's as if he had said in his description "I shalt not tell a lie", and then proceeded to lie...it wasn't a commentary about the religion, per se...

...it was my impression that most church-goers don't decorate with stripper/lap dance signs...just sayin'...

All I can say is beware of anyone who uses God or a Bible scripture as a tool for monetary gain.

ONCE AGAIN, NAME CALLING ON THIS SITE IS A NO-NO!

THEN AGAIN, TYPING "HELL" AND "CHURCH" IN THE SAME SENTENCE DOESN'T FLY WITH ME EITHER.

IT'S A MODERATOR CALL..........

Don't waste you time guys with a decorator which is trying to make trouble on oldgas.
Look at his profile, he's new for one, google search his phone number to see what or who he is and that will tell all! Sells on ebay using other peoples photos! Bad news!!


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.
