The Nash painted tin sign I found on the inside of a ClearVision visible covering an access hole. A couple of other signs rather long in the tooth.

I nominate Tom's (Nochevys) sign....

Scroll down on thread...

http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=680679#Post680679

Now that's a sign with character and a cool story. I also remember someone recently finding one that a tree grew around as well.
