...wow...not that DB needs anyone to fight his battles, but his contributions to this site (AND the hobby) dwarf any that the Picker-Come-Lately crowd will ever make - because their motivation is money, and their inspiration is Reality TV...

...if you want to know what Oldgas would be like without people like DB, Jack Sim, etc., go on Facebook, and browse some of the gas station memorabilia pages...it's pathetic...the discussion gets about as in-depth as 'is it for sale?' or 'how much?'...

...one more thing: it seems obvious to me that if you're going to buy an item/items on eBay and then turn around and list them on eBay, it would be advisable to make sure the old listing is ended, before starting your listing...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

Mark, I agree. DB and Jack have forgotten more than I will ever know.

Old gas web sight I like .....Face book etc , i don't like ...... All the fun and poking and drama here I do like , keeps it interesting to read! Some nights I can't wait to get home. And lots of great stories and pictures and a wealth of knowledge that I think most do appreciate.


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

DB is a HUGE asset to this site and the hobby...Mark is 110 percent corrrect. Dick tells it the way it is plain and simple.


The most valuable commodity I know of is information-Wall Street

DB has his own way of saying things like a lot do, sometimes it's like salt in a cut but it's still good info, it's what you do with that info that matters. Sometimes I just login and read and copy and paste some "Petro tidbits" as I call it.


I've learned so much from him and many others and I'm great full for the knowledge.

My vote is with DB or anyone else that contributes on a regular basis. Most pickers or flippers I don't mind and there is room for them in the hobby. But, I've had my fill of these e-Bay clowns. Simply here to promote their business and using this site to sell or buy items without contributing to any threads from a knowledge base are useless to me.

I wouldn't sympathize with any of these handful of e-Bay clowns. You won't see me suckholing up to them. I haven't bought an item from any of them and never will. Surely, they wouldn't be buying for me as I'd be making sure not to leave any meat on the bone for them.

The drama is caused by them (same handful) and their only concern...a quick flip. Trying to sell the item before it's in their possession, before the sellers had a chance to remove the listing...ect.

They're like a cancer on the hobby.

My 2 cents.... If you in this hobby for the enjoyment of collecting, learning and searching for the items you love. This is the perfect site.
If your a picker or a picker want a be, this is the perfect site to learn all about this hobby.
If your trying to make a living buying and selling Petroliana this isn't the best site because members very seldom are going to pay you your asking price.
If you want to sell a sign for $7500 that you just paid $2500 on here it better be a rare one or this isn't the place to sell it.

And I have no problem selling an item that I found somewhere just to throw on e-bay and make a few bucks!!!
But no one can ever question my honesty about said item!

DB, Jack Sim, Ron Scobie, Randy Jones and many others have taught me so much in this Hobby and I believe they have over all these years because, I earned their respect and have always been honest with them!

We have seen quite a few new members get all wound up when they feel they are not getting the respect they think they deserve....well I had to earn mine it wasn't given to me!!!


Thanks
Mike

Ditto on Mike's comments.
Great site to learn from and meet people virtually and in person if you want to! And you don't have to date them either.

Another member who hasn't earned the respect of others on this site sticks up for the same thing.....IMO, No offense but that means the future of this hobby will be a very dishonest, rule breaking bunch LOL

Where did this start? I don't read as many postings as many of you above. What item on ebay? Where is the thread you speak of?
