...found this original Koolmotor ad (dated 1930) for sale online. $3 shipped. Used the wife and her eye for style and got it matted and framed today. Love how it came out, and it will look nice in the office...

(I know a lot of you probably have news clippings and articles in your collection, would love to see how you have it setup & displayed, so share if you can)

Not the greatest pic, but one of the neatest maps. Artist is the iconic Peter Helck.

Dave, love that station picture... and really like how the matte around it is in a Sinclair looking color theme.

Would really like to find some original artwork like that with a Cities station!

This shell map is from my Home town, also the small porcelain thermometer is from the same station.

Here is a picture of the Shell station the map and Thermo came from, it still stands today but is sitting empty. I would love to buy it.

Great ideas... Just don't take it too far... Or you will end up with your own 4'x5' room filled with "junk"...
