Here's contact info:
Creative Signs by Cozad
1836 7th
Gering, Nebraska 69341
308-436-7312
I would say if Tom is around and has time at the moment he would let you see it. He lives right there but travels to put up signs for companies all over a large area. The Sugar Valley Rally has ended its antique car rally here the last several years and is open to the public on the first weekend in June. Tom, pictured on the Coke Cushman, started out making decals for truck doors many years ago, is a very hard working, creative, humble, nice fellow and would be very happy to have you come for a visit if it works with his schedule. He is constantly restoring pumps, cars, adding Coke stuff. Give him a call when you know you'll be in the area.

Tom doesn't have enough Hair to justify having his own Barber Shop!

That is so way way cool! Just showed my wife the diner and she absolutely loves it, and so do I. Thank you for sharing those pictures. I especially love the tanker and everything with it.

Five Stars!

Just heard that Tom had a fire Sunday Morning. He lost the majority of his Coca-Cola collection. Really hate to see this happen to such a nice guy. He is always willing to show anybody his wonderful displays.

Thanks rvanpelt for posting.

I was sorry to hear and read this, but knowing Tom and his wife I immediately gave Tom a call to let him know that I was very sorry to hear the news, and glad that he and his wife were rescued with no injuries.

Very sad to say the least, but as Tom stated..."those collectables are replaceable".....
