Thanks guys for all the kind comments. The house also received a number of upgrades: new sewer line, electrical box, sidewalks and steps to match the driveway, insulation and matching Hardi board siding. There are still a few items to do such as replacing the front and rear doors on the house and add an alley fence. Right now I am installing baseboards in the garage main floor. I am just a garage guy who has always wanted a decent one to work and play in. I just hope I can pay it off before I hit 70 and then retire debt free. At least that is the plan. Cheers, Don.

Just an update. The first showcase now has some appropriate feet on it and contains a few more cans and another globe on top. The second cabinet is upstair too and is filled with my earliest Imperial Oil tins. Many of these are from the teens, so around 100 years old. Not all in the best of condition but still remarkable that they have survived this long. Now the hunt is on for a set of four feet for this showcase.

Don, You have a superb display of some quite nice vintage items there. Best of luck with the search for four legs, I'm sure they will turn up!

Thanks for the comments. Steve I will try to take some Mobil photos tonight and maybe post them later or else tomorrow. It all depends how late it is when I get home. Cheers, Don.

Here are the photos of my Mobiloil. Since it was a secondary brand sold by Imperial Oil here in Canada there doesn't seem to be as many variety of tins like Imperial had. At least I haven't found that many here in Alberta. The gargoyles are great but scarce.

Here are the last two photos. The early gargoyle is one end of a 16 jar oil rack. Thanks Craig, my back is already hurting thinking about moving the pumps upstairs. They may just end up on the main floor. There are only half a dozen with two unrestored. Cheers, Don.
