I purchased this gas station earlier this year from a bank repo. It was in very poor condition. I redid the entire inside and outside; windows, doors, heating and cooling. It still has three lifts inside. Now the space is used as extra storage for our companies. I hope you like, it was a fun project to work on and a very good price.

Thanks,
Nick

Without a doubt, my most amazing purchases of 2013 would have to be the two signs I bought from my friend "Petro Pete". The Texaco Marine was new to him in 1947 and hung in his marina for many years, until he moved it to the house for safe keeping, before selling it to me in 2013. The Quaker State neon was also a fixture from his uptown service station and dates back to the 20's.
The addition of the glass, cat eyed Cities Service curb sign , was the most important addition to my Cities Service collection, since is inception. This piece is an early teens or twenties piece and I have never seen another one in anyone's collection! It is by far the rarest piece of early Cities Service advertising that I own!
2013 was an amazing year for me and these 3 pieces symbolize just how fantastic it was! A big "THANK YOU" to Petro Pete and Clinton Newell for their help!

Added several very nice signs to my collection but these two top the list for the year. The GMC sign is currently being restored with new neon; will post the finished product once it is done. The Marathon came from a family that had it for 60 years and was obtained from a station that was being dismantled in the 1950's.

Not a huge year, but way more than I deserved, I'm sure. Here are 3 iconic pieces. The United Motors is a poor pic, but has had its rear tire and wheel repaired.

Special Thanks to Noah "Gas Globe Guy" for making a deal with me on my Ford Benzol Sign!!! I never thought I'd ever be able to have an original one in my collection, and I know it's rough, but it's real and it's Mine!!! I plan on leaving it in it's unrestored condition. You can restore it whenever you want, but it's only original once!
