Am a new member getting into petroliana collecting. All these signs and pumps were in service before my time so I'm trying to learn what I can after the fact about the originals. Speaking with some guys it seems like this is a bad time to get into this hobby as it is saturated with collectors now and the reproduction and fake signs outnumber the originals but something about it keeps driving me toward this hobby.
I work as a utility worker on the gas pipelines and enjoy what I do. I play the guitar (mostly blues) and collect signs, old brass belt buckles, vintage trucker hats (mostly oil & gas related), knives, and I live in the country.

Welcome to Oldgas. There is plenty of good information and knowledge available on this site. I have to say your name of TexasRanger84 living in Ontario caught my attention since I live in the DFW area and was born in Kitchener! Best of luck with your collecting!
I collect gas pump salt and pepper shakers and the plastic coin banks both made by AVSCO.
With a name like Dallas growing up I've heard all the Texas and cowboy jokes. I just embrace it now lol. Am originally from Winnipeg. Will be in Texas for my first time next week actually. Thanks for the kind words and the reply!
