Hello fellow Old Gassers, To be perfectly honest with you when I started collecting gas and oil 25 years ago, "smalls" did not interest me in the least. I started out as a heavy oil quart can collector, then wanted one pump and a few signs..well, things change over the years and i have 15 pumps and a bunch of signs now..some call it an obsession, I say its just my Hobby..LOL. When I got the Hat badge/pin bug, i started looking at Oil Company "smalls in a new light. I thought they would make a nice display with the badges and started collecting shadow box frames from the thrift store and creating Company displays. I will be posting more photos as I finish them but here are a few for you to view. i hope you find them as interesting as they were as fun for me to create.


Mobil "Smalls"

Associated "Smalls"


Texaco pin display

I am almost finished with a Richfield display..will probably post next week and soon to come Pan Am/Amoco and Esso displays smile

Great job on the "Shadow Box " frames ! Hey, small stuff can add to a room just as well as a bunch of oil cans . A lot depends upon how much room one can devote to the hobby . Ed Shaver
