Ten days ago I bought a half of a large Firestone sign in NC because I thought it was neat ?

I know where another half is ! A guy up the road from me has one nailed to his barn but its rough. Your half looks good...most of these larger signs are hard to find clean.

57tbirdkid , Show the guy up the road the pictures. One of the Fire sides will be for sale sooner or later. There is still 800 miles between the two signs. I have to see how the colors match up.

I have half of one of those too. I think it's the "stone" side and might be a little different than the one above. Funny a random guy stopped in today and saw it screwed to my outside garage wall (facing in) and questioned it.

Still waiting for my other half to show up!

Reminds me of all the "SINC" and "LAIR" signs. I wonder how all of these 2 piece signs get split up?

I should pair my 1/2 (Fire)stone with that 1/2 Good(year).

Then I would have a Goodstone sign! HAHAHAHAHA!

1st off signs were split for ease in moving/transporting.
Scrap Yard sold odd numbers of metal as that is what customer only needed 3-5 to repair the sheeting over pig/chicken barn/coop.
Customer was buying sheeting, Not signs.
