sorry to hear... if anyone has a picture of Dwight, please share. I'm not too good with names, but tend to recognize faces from shows.

Thanks for posting Mike. I was just thinking of him the other day.
Dwight was an early supporter of my show. A real nice guy who will be missed in our hobby as well as the snowmobile world.

My sympathies to Mace and the family.
Looking for photos, etc from 60s era Shell-A-Rama gas station and Pal's Diner, Rt. 17 Mahwah, NJ
& US or state highway signs, shields, route markers

I was wondering why I had not seen him at Hershey or Zebulon. Sorry to hear of his passing.

This saddens me. Mr. Sawyer, Mace and my oldest son shared a special bond. Annually at IG for the past 10-12 they brought "gifts" in the form of toy service stations for Chase. Over the time we also purchased dozens from him. As time went on, we got deeper into his collection and he would say to me "dad this year is going to hurt a little more than last year". Meaning my wallet and him for letting go of the better stations. Chase has about 50 and 2/3 of them probably came from Dwight.

My oldest is a unique kid, Mace and Dwight really embraced him.

Dwight was an amazing person, my heart goes out to mace.

Collect small Oklahoma Oil Co.'s 1920's-1940's. Barnsdall, Cushing, Eason, Marland, etc.

Photos sent in of Dwight Sawyer by Ed Natali.

Rest in Peace, Dwight.
