I bought this Standard Service sign about a month and a half ago from Hotrodfun1, here on Old Gas. He's located in the middle of Montana and I'm in eastern North Dakota, so we had a slight logistics problem on the transportation. Commercial carriers wanted just as much as my purchase price to get it hauled out here!
Scott offered to get it to his nephews place in western North Dakota, if I could be patient for a while! About 4 weeks after the purchase, it arrived in ND, but still 250 miles away! I then called Porcelain-neon thats here in ND and he knew of a very reasonable transfer service that operated in western ND and he offered to let it be shipped to his place. Forty bucks later, it was at Gregs in Minot and it was a simple phone call to a friend that travels to Minot on a weekly basis and he brought it here to Devils Lake!
SOoooo with a little patience and a little help from other Old Gassers, we got that sign delivered for a total cost of $40!
Thank you very much goes out to both Greg and Scott for their help in this little deal! I truly appreciate it!
Its going to get a good cleaning and polishing and then go into my original Standard Sign Pole that I bought and painted last year! I have only to get it cemented in the ground and wired up for lights! But that will be another set of pictures when I finally get time to put the thing up! Enjoy!

My Buys of the week:

Found an old sign bracket and refinished it (not the correct one for the Ford Sign, but until I can fabricate one like the original I figured I would hang it up)-

Hello All,
Here are my buys of the last month and a half....or more in the case of the Pure globe. I bought the pair of NOS lenses off Ebay in October. Roger Winchell picked me up the body at Peotone, which I recently had painted, so in total 6 months and I have a globe! The Mobilgas came from Old Gasser Frank Jones. Thanks to him for replying to my "who owned it" query when I spied it in some show pics a couple months ago. The 3 Hi-Speed items are my only Michigan Gas buys. An original uniform patch and a couple ignition part boxes. Lastly, the 2 Mobil items I already had nicer examples of, but I found them cheap in local antique stores so I can't pass up a good deal, like everyone else.
Take care,
Darin

Wow Jeff. If I lived closer I would love to see all your pumps. I noticed most of the pumps you have been getting have numbers on them. Are they coming from an estate or something?

After seeing all of the great pumps and signs in the past few weeks this is nothing special but sure got a lot of looks going from Everett Washington to Southern Oregon. 10 pumps in a standard 7 foot box.

My buys from the weekend. The best of the group are the Evinrude sign with dealer name, porcelain western union sign, porcelain street sign, and the embossed yield, slow and one way signs. The mustang is a repop but was priced right. The Moog and Valvoline signs were 80s-90s, but still worth the $5 each for hanging in the shop. Always wanted a stoplight and parking meters, so couldn't pass them up. Also picked up a clean 15 cent RC machine (not pictured). Cheese's collection is museum-worthy!

NICE haul! Dustin, I lived in KS for many years (Fort Riley, Kansas State/Manhattan, KC and back to Clay Center) and I NEVER found anything at a garage sale that was worth anything... all JUNK. You got hooked up and that is GREAT!!!

The "Buzzard" sticker is staying on the stop sign for sure. I figured it was worth the twenty bucks, and there would be someplace around here to hang it up.
