This month I thought I would do something a little different and go with independent oil companies. So what I mean is any company that was not affiliated with any other company. Please post if you got it thanks

Here are a couple of independent globes I have. The first one is my favorite globe in my collection. The second globe even though they used the same name and same colors they are not related.

Looked around at my Gasoline related signs and I don't think these were affiliated with any others. Weren't all older gas companies independent at one point before being acquired or closing? I have a Pennant sign before Sinclair does that count as an independent? Might have a few more that qualify for the thread.

That magic gas sign is great. Who wouldn't buy their gas for the car-after all its Magic?
No matter what company uses a big cat for a logo, it looks greaaaat. Well except the early Gilmore cat.

Dave,

The "Cavalier" art work (back of truck) is killer art work!

Were any signs made with that art work?

Square Deal Oil Co had 5 stations listed on this 1949 map but later became a Phillips distributor.
1950 Simpson Oil Co map was later was owned by Sinclair.
1959 Drake's Refinery Stations map was Lansing, Michigan based with 30+ stations that have been sold individually.
1955 Speed King is an unknown that I followed leads toTwining, Michigan,Napoleon & Defiance, Ohio with no luck.

Hen ; I don't know of any Cavalier signs but they may exist.

Took 25 years to get this globe back to Tennessee. Happened to mention this globe to Dan Matthews and he told me that Clifton Jones was buying the collection that this globe was in. Clifton sold it to me. Thanks Dan and Clifton.

Not sure if this qualifies or not, but here is my Midwest oval. There are two versions, right and left pointing arrow, this being the harder to find of the two evidently.

These were dug out of a dumpster a number of years ago.... unfortunately I was the 2nd owner after the dumpster guy, so they weren't cheap.

Thanks guys for the kind words...I had a member ask me about the Kettleman King globe. That was Beacon's premium grade of gasoline.

I don't have much gas and oil stuff but here are some of my favorites.. The Keith Gasoline globe is from a small oil company that I was told was from New England.. They were later bought out by Sinclair..

The Crescent sign is from am oil company based out of Baltimore. This company started life as the Red "C" Oil Company, pre 1900.. The Wizard Gas globe was Red C's gas brand, notice the red "C" in the background.. I don't find much Red C or Crescent stuff so when I do it's always a great find..

Couple of independents from Montana. Alas, I no longer have the Grizzly sign. The Power globe and pump plate were from the old Montana Power Company from the 30s and 40s. They sold off the refinery to Union 76 after WWII and eventually got out of the business. We didn't own the stations, just a distributor. Before I moved to Butte they cleaned out a warehouse and a whole bunch of globes went to the dump.
