This showed up at my door thr other day.Several years ago i got the base from the grandson of the Cities Service station owner here in Oslo. He said he had the rest of the sign somewhere. It was used to keep the grainery door open or closed for years and also to funnel grain into the auger from the truck ,then dissappeared. Well it arrived the other day.I asked how much, he said Merry Christmas. The Chevy sign i got out of a building that was a dealership in a small Minnesota town years ago

I slowed down a lot this year on the buying but here are my favorites this year. No pumps this year witch is odd for me lol. smile

Globes.


Set of Vaughts the Super Regular is a hard one to get.


This Sterling is another one I own that is the only one known to exist. Found it on Craigslist & was about a hour from me.


Here are my favorite quart cans. Nothing real rare or special but still my favs smile


Well I bought one clock this year & this is it. Keeps prefect time & looks great with the neon lite up.


Just a couple big signs make the list for me this year. I look at the Johnson & see the sign I wish it was LoL. Did a gas pump trade for the United Motors from a friend of mine redoing a old station.

The Sterling globe is a particular rarity. While from an unknown company when the globe book was completed, the globe has since been confirmed as having been used by a company in Burlington, Vermont. This globe appears on a pump shown on page 213 in the new "One Hundred Years of Gas Stations."
