I saw one at a local scrap yard and tried to talk them into selling it . After trying to explain that it was collectable and worth saving all they wanted to do was cut it up so they did , made me sick glad to see you saving history.

There was a Sinclair like that near my folks' house when I was a kid. I think it had been boarded up since the 50s. It was a local navigational landmark. The pumps had been long gone, and the signs gradually disappeared over the years. On a visit about 20 years ago, I saw it was gone and a house had been built on the lot. That was a sad day. Thanks for rescuing this one!
