I don't know if there is a OldGas "Story of the year" but if there is, I nominate J.E. Radebaughs Buy of the Year as the story of the year for 2013!!! What a great window into your family's past! Thanx for sharing that with us!
I have had some very cool buys during 2013 and I don't get to keep much for my own collection but it makes me extremely happy to be able to un-earth/rediscover many of these items and to be able to be the caretaker for them for a short amount of time! The people are another wonderful side of these finds/buys also! Sellers and buyers have some great stories and personalities.
I've been wanting a Vertical sign since I started doing this but I have never wanted a ordinary one.
I was called about the 2 Penn. tires signs and after getting them home and cleaned up, I had to sell the better one but now the vert. sign is my first vertical sign in my own collection! I really enjoy the way the letters are very gothic looking and it is a eye catcher even tho it is simple.
Pictured on my wall, in my home, next to Crushy and I had to edit out the mess on my computer desk.
