Hi all, I'am pretty new to old gas and thought I would post a picture of my shop.I have been into classic cars for years and always admired the old gas and oil signs and find myself drawn to that stuff more and more all the time.I have been collecting signs and pumps now for about 5 years.OG looks like a good place to gather info for future purchases.

Welcome to Old-Gas... Nice looking shop. I put a full size Pegasus up in my shop A few years back and I swear the stress level when your having problems on a muscle car seem to go easier due to the atmosphere in the shop surrounded by old signs!


Thanks
Mike

Yeah I have one that I picked up down south a couple of years ago.It is a little on the tougher side but I still like the sign.In fact I seem to be drawn to the signs that are not perfect and they dont look too bad hung up.

I completely agree Mike... I find myself not getting much work done on the cars because I like the atmosphere too much lol. It is like my little get away right at home.

I had it for like 6 years before I put it up and every time I'm in there working I wonder why I waited so long..... It's a stress free addiction!!!

That looks fantastic! Makes me want to go and find some more!!! I dont know about you but I just love finding this stuff. Whenever we go on a holiday or something I find myself scouring local adds to see if I can find something. Every sign I have I can remember where, when and who I bought it off of. I've met some great people that have similar interests.

Great looking shop. Being a So Cal guy... the Irwindale sign caught my eye right away. I was wondering what the history was on that one. Tom

Thanks Guys! The Irwindale sign is hand painted and not original but I just liked the look of it. The sign has a 60's drag race look to it so I thought it would look good in the shop. A guy by the name of Tom Towler out of Oregon painted it and he does amazing stuff. I see him every year at the Portland swap meet and buy a sign off of him every year.

Nothing like a shop of old cars and trucks and lots of signs and pumps , I can just sit and stare. Very nice pics you both posted. If my hop wasn't such a mess right now I would join in!


I like SINCLAIR and old American made stuff ... No china items.
