Got this one today. As you might can tell from the second picture, it's a slight upgrade. I can't wait to see what a cleaning and a Mr. Bennett treatment will do for it (the new one smile.

Curb sign. It probably went in a U shapped bracket.

It's for a rod that would have a Pricer Box mounted to it - or another form of 'Point of Sale' advertizing.

Later . . .

Yes, they are. The heck of it is I found it under my mother's house, so I'm probably the fool who smashed it. Still an upgrade, though.

Couple of Chevrolet items I pulled out of an old dealership in Montana, the porcelain Neon is 8 foot and in real nice condition. The brown spots are dirt, very few chips haven't had time to clean it up yet but great gloss! Have to go back for another load this week-end, if it ever quits raining in this country!!
