This forum for Non-Petro buying, selling and wanted items

This forum is intended for active community member collectors to post pre-1970 Non-Petroliana items for sale and wanted from the following interest areas:
Vintage Advertising
Country Store
Gameroom
Automotive-Transportation

We don't want this to be a wide open flea market, so please NO unrelated items or items newer than 1970. No commercial vendors inventory or illegal items. We will fine tune this as we go.

* New Members are restricted from posting New Topics in the For Sale forums until they have demonstrated knowledge of the forum and how our online community works with their posts. After 8 such posts, including posting an image, new members may request an upgrade to regular privileges.

The Guidelines from the For Sale Petroliana forum also apply here, except for the special Non-Petro differences, of course. Please read those Guidelines and follow them.

Hey Jim. you might want to "lock" your message at the top of the column so people see it and it doesn't get buried.

Posts that criticize the condition or price of the item will be deleted.
If you don't like the price or the item, pass on it or send the seller a PM or email.
Posts that are "off-topic" and not directly related to the selling of the item will be deleted.

quick question - do highway signs belong here? I've always thought route markers were petro-related (at least, a lot of petro guys like to buy them from me!) but if not, please let me know, so I can post my signs for sale in the correct location.

thanks!

Highway signs are in a somewhat gray area. They are definitely not petroleum, auto service or gas station related, but they do show up at petroliana specialized swap meets. Some petro guys do collect and display them. I get a few complaints about highway signs in the petro For Sale forum, but there are other members who don't care.

Since you ask, we would prefer highway signs to be in the Non-petro For Sale or Showcase forums. That's the reason the Non-Petro For Sale forum was set up to enable trading all those "kind of related" things like soda & beer collectibles, classic car items, general store and gameroom items. Other roadside collectibles like motel & diner, highway signs and Route 66 memorabilia are all welcome there.

Ed,
Sorry I didn't see your question right away.

Yes, gas station promotional toy cars, airplanes and other related promo items may be posted here for sale.

Edited Guidelines in the first post of this topic to state that Non-Petro For Sale items are to be at least pre-1970 or older.

Hi:

I'm a rookie here so I wanted to run this past you before I posted. I have 1978 Ford Explorer pick-up plastic promo pin to sell. Are you ok with that.

Thanks,

JP

Hi LuvOldChevs,

Our definition of petroliana for inclusion in "For Sale or Trade Petroliana" forum includes "auto service and auto dealership signs" but not all the other auto collectibles.

In this "Non-Petro For Sale, trade or Wanted" forum, we are trying to limit items to pre-1970 in the "Vintage Advertising, Country Store, Gameroom, Automotive-Transportation" interest areas.

Hope you understand that we are trying to refine this forum category to only older items and a cut-off date had to be set. So items in those interest areas mentioned that are pre-1970 are encouraged, while items newer than 1970 are discouraged. I recommend offering your 1978 item on eBay instead.

Have just joined this site and understand the need for a cut off date on items. I have a very unique item that is 1973 and involves Indycar racing. It is the wickerbill from the No. 77 car that Salt Walther crashed at the start of the race. It is a historical piece that some of your members might like to add to their garage or shop collections. Wanted ask first before offer it. Thanks ~ Indy

The "Non-Petro For Sale" forum category was intended to be a place where active petroliana collectors could buy or sell items that were not really petroliana, but were within the limited list of items in the Guidelines.

In recent years, we have had an influx of new members who were not petroliana collectors. They used the category to sell unrelated items that could be found in a flea market or garage sale. After many complaints, the limitations on items to be offered for sale were tightened up.

Your item is probably cool in the auto racing memorabilia hobby, but we have drawn a line for age and interest areas in this forum. Sorry that your item is not within the limitations shown in the Non-Petro Guidelines.

Updated the Non-Petro For Sale Guidelines to include the For Sale Petroliana Guidelines, except for the Non-Petro special differences.

So please follow the same rules on limited bumping, required pricing and no criticism of pricing as in the For Sale Petroliana forum.
