eBay has been good to me this week.

8"x12" Diesel Chief Sign and 5" Texaco letters (all of them dated the same date).

My flea market finds from May 29th. I've wanted a Prestone therm for sometime. Although not perfect, the price on this one was right. Also glad to find the RPM mini bank to match one of my metal RPM cans.

would anyone be enticed to post the prices they paid, or a range? I see stuff like this all the time, but I never know what is a good price. I'm also headed to CTO which will be my first petro event ever and am hoping to bring some things to trade.

Thx.

I'll tell prices. The Prestone thermometer was $100. The BF Goodrich cardboard sign was $10. The wolfs head grease can was $5. The RPM mini oil can bank was $10.

I picked this up this weekend, it is printed on linen and about 30"x40". It was NOS and had the original shipping tube, it came from a garage/ gas station/ hardware store that opened in the 20's.

The Starrett piece isn't exactly petro but loosely connected. Itís a cool early piece, its dated 1906. Looks like it was some kind of hanging display shelf?

Hello Nucky,
Very nice BP sign - IMHO this logotype came to use in 1947 and went on to 1958 when the newer logo without the black shades on "BP" was introduced.

Thanks for the information, by the way the logo was designed by Raymond Loewy which was well know for his trains, buses and tons of other great stuff he designed. He also creates the logo Shell and Exxon

for the price, the sign was for sell at 75 Ä and I got it for 55 Ä, so in USD it cost me 80 bucks, and the esso can cost me 4 $

Really like the Starrett shelf. They make precision measuring tools (micrometers, calipers, etc) for the manufacturing industry. Same tools are commonly used by engine rebuilders and machinists too. I like it.
