I HAVE NOT BEEN DECEPTIVE TO ANYONE I HAVE CLEARLY STATED TRUE ANSWERS WHEN ASKED ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY OF THE SIGNS I POST. HAVE EVER BEEN TO ARGENTINA OR SOUTH AMERICA ? IF YOU HAVE YOU WOULD KNOW THAT OLD STUFF IS PREVALENT AND NOT JUST TRASHED LIKE IT WAS IN THE US. ALL OF YOUR COMMENTS ARE YOUR OPINIONS. YOU BASE ALL YOU INFO OF OF WHAT YOU THINK NOT FACT! IF YOU DON'T LIKE A SIGN DON'T BUY IT. IT IS NOT FAIR TO SAY I HAVE BE DECEPTIVE WHEN I HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY OPEN AND HONEST WHEN ASKED ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY SIGNS I HAVE POST. YOU HAVE NEVER EVEN ASKED ME A QUESTION SO YOU DEFINITELY WOULDN'T KNOW THAT ANSWER. MY OPINION IS THAT YOU ARE RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL AND ARE QUICK TO MAKE JUDGEMENT ON SOMEONE WITHOUT EVEN HEARING WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. I WOULD APPRECIATE IF KEPT MY NAME OUT OF YOUR POSTS YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T KNOW ME AND HAVE NO RIGHT TO CRITICIZE ME. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO DO SO MY GRANDFATHER WHO HAS BEEN AN ATTORNEY FOR 25 YEARS WILL GLADLY SOME FACTS. HAVE A GOOD ONE BUDDY!

jgoff, I believe in the "Computer World" using all caps; Is the same as shouting at the readers.... And it does seem to bother quite a few people...

It's hard on the eyes to read as well.

I've already shared this info with jgoff and some others on Oldgas....I am not an expert on signage... I did however, spend what I consider a fair amount of time in Argentina and other Country's in South and Central America in the mid 1970s... I was stationed at Balboa in Panama and was an "Instructor" at the "School of the America's"...

I contacted Mr. Harper because, I didn't find any images of the Texaco-Vacuum "NAFTA" sign on the 'net, that were over 5 years old ... Nor did I ever see such a sign, when I spent time in Argentina...

As I told jgoff, just because I never "noticed" such signage doesn't mean the signage is "fake"... But, it does give me question?....

But, so far the Corporate Historian of Texaco can't find an image of such a sign. Nor can he find any mention of a "JOINT VENTURE" between Texaco and Vacuum...

I have sent a request that the Historian for EXXON/Mobil contact Mr. Harper and/or myself and hopefully maybe he/she can either find mention of such a venture or he/she can tell us positively that there was no venture.

Again, as I related to jgoff, if there was no venture between Texaco and Vacuum? Then the sign is not real....

Until we have proof, either way... NO ONE KNOWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been doing this a long time... I've seen some items that have "stumped" me... But, not a whole lot of them... This sign has me stumped... I've now seen 5 of these signs in the last 5 years... But, never saw one before 5 years ago....


I don't know if this will help but this one is 36" and has been hanging here for 15 years. Definitely dates to the transition period. We have always thought it came from Mexico but we don't read Spanish. Cool sign though sorry the image is so small I only use my phone for photos and am tec illiterate.
