Great stuff so far guys! I was very lucky this year. Thanks to Oldgas and some great friends, including 57tbirdkid and gmstuff, I was able to add some great pieces to my collection.

Being my First year for collecting Petroliana and restoring pumps it's been great! I have collected quite a few items but by far my favorite item would be my Frontier/Beeline banner I got a couple of weeks ago.
I finally hung it up yesterday in the Mancave above my garage.

Great finds for 2012 guys and good luck on the "hunt" in 2013.
Bob.



The rest of the Mancave,




My garage all collected and restored since March 2012 kinda got bit by the bug! but have met a bunch of great guys looking forward to 2013!

I had a good year due to the sale of my 56 GMC Suburban Pickup (Cameo), my Tonka collection and a bunch of truck parts so I was able to spend a lot on petro. My two best buys of the year are a Wayne 50 showcase and a Erie 53. The stuff in the showcase and the globe body on the Erie 53 are also buys this year.

Nothing real special but here it is. I have been wanting one of these big Sinclair signs for quite a while. Then I got these very nice Exide Battery signs. Then a few of my favorite quarts.

There is a Twin to your Auto heater sign in an antique shop in Wadsworth Ohio. That makes it the third I've seen in 50 plus years. Very nice.

I didn't buy much this year, but here are my best buys for 2012. M&S 80 Mobilgas Script top pump with pump plates(found in a old fuel shed as is); Bowser embossed lid & American 48 Tripple glass cylinder oil dispensers from the 20's & a Boyle Dayton 54 Pre Visible Pump from 1915.
Thanks, Bill
