A couple items from the first Morphy's Auction featuring items from the Kyle Moore collection. The pictures show both the 48 and 24 inch versions of the red aircraft signs. (I should add I was not able to buy these items)

Grandpa Miller had the local Sinclair bulk plant back in the day along with his business partner Clyde Miller. When they retired, my dad and another guy bought them out and took over. I posted some pictures earlier, here are a few more I copied from slides last week. First ones are from a flood that happened over the 4th of July, 1969
You can see the top part of a Dino globe sticking up from the water, it was attached to a Bennett 700 series pump I think.
I got a couple cans in the mail today. I never knew a metal Sinclair DTR can existed until I saw a guy on Facebook in Italy had some for sale. I already had the black composit one and the red one so the metal one enhances the collection. Makes me wonder if there is a metal red one out there also? Also never saw the High Quality can in person before. It and the metal DTR say Sinclair on the front and ARCO/ Atlantic Richfield on the back.
Couple more pictures tonight. Most people are familiar with the cans shown on the can rack sign. From the 1960's, cardboard cans. Not an expensive can, probably more collectable to a Sinclair collector than a quart can collector. I got the three center cans in the second picture today. They are metal and instead of being a full quart, they are instead 1/8 gallon size. Never saw them before. Plus the can on the far right is plastic. I have seen a similar Texaco before if I recall. You never know what will turn up next.
