Hello everyone,

WOW what a busy month this has been!! Sign of the Month is a little late. Getting ready to head to the Syracuse Nationals this weekend. 6000+ hotrods, street rods, and classics gather at the New York State Fairgrounds.

Anyway, no fancy banner this month, let's keep it simple and let's see the "JEWELS" of your collection this month.

Anything goes. Gas, Oil, Soda, Any Advertising in the form of a sign.

Here's my favorite.

A absolutley stunning original. Barn find. Still has original mailer on back from Goodrich to a local garage/gas station. Awesome colors and gloss. I'll post more soon........

Two signs I am rather fond of. Texaco is common, but I've always liked this earliest version sign.



Not too common Pan Am

Here are a couple of my favorite signs that belong to me. The 6 foot HC was the first porcelain sign that I ever bought. I also paid more for it than any other sign I have bought since. I got ti from Jackie Knott and I believe it is the same sign that is in the "Sinclair Collectibles" book on page 64. (The book says it is a 48" but looking at the building I would think it is a 72"



This second sign also came from Jack and is on page 88 of the book.



And this last sign is one that I have never seen another one like in person or in pictures. If anyone has a map or a post card with a picture of it on it, I would like to see it. I have it is below a 5 foot trapazoid sign and probably was ment to be below the bigger size.

Here are a few more favorites that are not mine. I saw these in various collections and at the gas shows. I posted the first picture once before, three signs that I never saw another example of.




A couple on the display pole



Couple more

No signs in my collection that would make you guys say "wow", but I guess this is my favorite.

OK I guess a poster is not a sign, but it's my favorite non-petro collectible on the wall.

I don't have many signs but this is my favorite because it was given to me. It was found underneath a old saddle shop. Richard

tokheim, thanks for the memories.... I am a big Clint Eastwood fan. Have all his westerns.... But that particular movie, well, I was in college and working nights at a theater. We ran that for almost 3 months. I knew every line in it...lol.

Old "Theatre" by the way. Converted to a movie theater. Still had dressing rooms, long hall ways behind the walls, under the floor and over the top. Got errie at night when closing. Sure wish I had saved all those Movie posters I threw away now.....
