Iíll kick it off this month, here are as few of our favorites.

The owl is from the late 20ís and made out of masonite. The stomach is made of a celluloid type material, it flashes the sales slogan. One of the eyes flash to look like he is winking at you.

The 1937 Chevrolet window was used in the back window of a new 1937 Chevrolet while on display in the showroom. It even came with a converter so you could hook it up to the carís 6 volt battery.

The bowtie is from the 20ís, all original paint and glass letters.

Iíll try to get some others posted soon.

I sure don't have many light ups but here is a favorite of mine. This came from a small town near here and it took quite a bit of work to make it functional again! Needed new bulbs and starters, plus a little wiring too. I got it all put back together and it all works GREAT! Keeps perfect time too! Enjoy!

Here is my rapidly propagating gas pump collection (they seem to be like rabbits - 6 weeks ago I had 1, now there are three!)

Set them up on the patio for display on the holiday.

Left: 32' Penometer 41, Middle: Wayne 615, Right: 1915/1919 Wayne 276, the newest (and oldest) addition.

Just picked up this unusual (?) DX neon sign. Made of two emobossed porcelain signs, back to back, in a diamond shaped frame. The other side is in better shape...

Just this one for me, It does not look pretty un lit, But I bought it at Ron Bakers auction on a gamble and lit up it is pretty cool.
