No I don't, just the game board... Can you shoot me a photo of the "set up" so I can be on the look out for the correct pieces?

I love that the game survived so well on the back of the Gilmore Cub... Another item I will need to look for.... LOL

Scott, what a fantastic game! Now Power-Lube will be on my "saved searches"....

It is great that thanks to those who have posted so far, bits of history have been saved and protected....

Congrats gentlemen, for being "true Collectors"! (at least in my opinion, you all are "true Collectors")

I looked, but I cannot find it right now. I have no idea where it would be. Sorry. :-(

Below are images I found off the net just now- the spinner, game pieces and instructions. If I find mine, I'll take better pics for you.

It has been a while since, I started this thread. And I am still hoping to stumble over a "Travels of Mr. Linco" Game. As well as a Power-Lube "Speed Test" Game and an issue of the Gilmore Cub, with the Gilmore Yosemite Game on the back...

But, in the meanwhile; I have been able to add a Go-Gulf Board Game with pieces and original packaging envelope.... Also, another EN-AR-CO White Rose Board so I can display both the Checkers side as well as the Board Game side... And before I forget, a Standard Oil Red Crown Checker Board with Checkers that it also being displayed "on the Wall"; As well as a Champion Game Board with spinner and pieces...





So are there any other "Oil Company/Auto Parts" Board Games, that I should be on the "look out" for? If so, please post... And if you have an image of such a Game, please share...

My feelings have always been, if you own 10-20 oil cans, two petro ashtrays, a few petro glasses, one or two pumps, etc. you do not have a collection, you have an accumulation.

Back around 2000 when everyone was just discovering handy oilers, I had over 800 of them, and 600 different ones, this was at that time a collection.

So, what am I trying to say, rather than tell Bob about the one game you have, offer to sell it to him. Let him be the historian for petro related games.

While most of us have accumulations, I decided to have the most gas pump/service station related literature. I passed up buying games, ashtrays, I wanted literature.

So, again what am I trying to say, pick some little nitch related to this hobby, go after everything you can find about it, become the expert about that, in the mean time if you find something like a game, offer it to the person who wants to be the expert on that subject, he just might want to write a book about them.

I remember having a large Priority box filled with "smalls" that I know I would never sell, so I sent them to Bob, the expert on "smalls." We need to do more of this.
