these people selling petro at ridiculous prices dont realize that they will ultimately sell their item for less than they could get for it. Anyone within driving distance that is willing to pay a fair price for that sign, knows that they are going to have to deal with a total friggin moron or an antique dealer. Either way everyone in the deal loses. Can anyone remember the marathon girl?
see me at Mason Dixon Gas, Spring Carlisle M114-115, and Hershey C4E-35.

Too many people watching tv shows and looking at barret jackson auction prices and other stupid prices. Like I always say the uneducated always think their item is one of a kind and worth its weight in gold!!!! The best is wacthing some of these dealers at the few auctions i go to pay over a fair retail price for an item and expect to double and triple their money...now thats funny.
The most valuable commodity I know of is information-Wall Street

I was at the auction last month where he got the AC sign for 225. It is real. His expectations of value are not.

This seller continually buys fake garbage and lists it as real. See current listings of "Sunbeam" clock, "Bear Springs" clock, "Pabst" clock, "Socony" thermometer, Vasser College sign, and Michelin Man statue- all phony junk. Naive? Maybe. Fraudulent- yes. Report him to ebay.
Looking for photos, etc from 60s era Shell-A-Rama gas station and Pal's Diner, Rt. 17 Mahwah, NJ
& US or state highway signs, shields, route markers
