Another terrible year trying to find any real good stuff.... that I can resell! If this keeps up I may have to get another job that actually pays money. Either that or maybe change my buying philosophy to buy what you don't like. Well it is almost over, so all the best to everyone here for 2013. Cheers!! Don.

I sold my best petro buy. My biggest buy was a Nash dealership that closed in 49' with everything in it, Probably gonna take a year to clean it out so hopefully i find some great Nash signs . I have another of the Nash clocks NOS but i'm having a friend do the neon repair and its taking him a while with his job. Not my best buys, but my favorites.
NO LONGER A MEMBER.

I found a cloth covered pump hose and a pair of Texaco pump signs at the site of a roadside Texaco seller from the early part of the last century. The hose went on my Wayne 60 and the signs are looking good on the ceiling in my man cave. And lastly, I love my recently purchased Texaco globe on my 39. That is all my petro finds from 2012.
This one is one that I wish I would have bought years ago but am glad I was able to buy it now. Its the finishing touch on my backyard redo that included a firepit, b-ball court for the kids and new deck. Now I just need to do the outdoor lighting...
Here are a few of our favorites from 2012.. It seemed like it was a great year for smalls.. I was able to pick up this killer Kwick Work paint display from another Old Gasser, Thanks Nick!! I was also able to add this MINT French Auto Oil can to my collection; I've always wanted that can! My dad was able to pick up this 60" Chevrolet sign from a good friend.. The Wizard globe isnít really that special to globe collectors but it is defiantly one of our favorites of the year.. It was bittersweet to finally purchase this globe, it was in a friendís collection and we have been trying to purchase it for years, he unfortunately passed away this fall and his wife decided to sell some items in his passing. It is from a very small local oil company, The Red "C" Oil Company.. We have only ever found a handful of items from this company so this was a great addition..
