GOOD DAY FELLOW OLDGASSERS!

WHILE I'VE BEEN QUITE BUSY ON OTHER WEBSITES AND MESSAGE BOARDS AND TIME HAS BEEN SLIPPING BY, IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT OUT BELOVED FEATURE "COMPANY OF THE MONTH" AT THIS POINT HAS NO SCHEDULE BEYOND THIS MONTH.

I'D REALLY LIKE TO SEE IT KEEP GOING AND PROMOTE IT AS OPPOSED TO IT DYING OUT. WE'VE HAD A SOLID RUN OF GREAT COTM'S SINCE IT'S START IN JANUARY 2004. THERE ARE STILL ALOT OF LARGE AND SMALL COMPANIES OUT THERE THAT CAN BE REASEARCHED AND REPRESENTED.

MY GOAL AS OF THIS WRITING IS TO SEE WHO CAN DO A COTM HISTORY REPORT IN THE UPCOMING MONTHS.
I DON'T EXPECT SOMEONE TO JUMP IN AND DO MARCH, BUT BEYOND THAT I'D LIKE TO FILL A SCHEDULE OF SOME KIND. 5400+ MEMBERS SHOULD YIELD US SOME VOLUNTEERS, EH?

PLEASE POST HERE ON THIS THREAD SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY INTERESTS IN HELP THIS SHOWCASE FEATURE CONTINUE.

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!

There are people that participate on this site that collect:
Aetna
Ashland
Pure
Conoco
Tressler
Esso
Clark
DX
Kanotex

How about stepping up and sharing your knowledge about the companies you collect?

I have thousands of pictures on file that I've gotten permission to use here on oldgas. So if you do host a COTM I can probably furnish you some pictures.

Just a thought, I wouldn't mind seeing some of the older threads resurrected, maybe add onto some more or just look at for a refresher.

COTM flashback?

Robert,
I have pictures of 29 different Pennzoil signs that I can send you for your COTM. I might be able to scrounge up a globe picture or two also.
