Had a good time at the Peotone show. Bought two more oil collectible books and a soda book, got a lighter fluid can from my brother. There were some nice items there. I ended up with this two piece Sinclair strip sign. Nice colors and gloss. I think it is an older version of this sign because the white letters do not have the black background shading. Think it is a 12 or 14 footer. Thanks Tom B.

A vendor pulled into the Peotone parking lot just as I went out to my van. I saw this pump with its top and clock face and was just drawn over to it. I looked both ways to see if Dick Bennett was anywhere around. Could it be that a Tokheim 36b is still around with the top still intact? The 36b has been one of my favorites.
I just got it out of the van tonight. Best part is that Maureen can even see the potential.



I also got a Cardinal can from "canosaurus" Dave. Cardinal was a secondary brand at JD Streett, the Zephyr Gas parent company.
A Shop Talk member tipped me off about this Chi-Namel auto/carriage polish bottle.

Had a great time at the auction, the show and found some nice goodies along the way home. I really had a banner few days for can finds. I picked up somewhere between 40-50 new cans. Emailed Jim to post some of them for me. Some of the cans I had for sale I see in the photos. Thank you to those who purchased from me!!! Also, thanks to all who sold me some really great stuff. I always enjoy the shows and seeing long time friends.

Great pump Jim, could not have happened to a better fellow. However, I would change my address and put pump in storage somewhere because there is a top scalper on the loose on the west coast.

I have to agree with Phil nice score on a pump for a great guy. If you ever get sick of it Jim let me know I will be at your house in 3 hours or less lol. Well here are my buys from Peotone & 1 from Ebay.

My Ebay buy a Tydol Ethyl globe on a Capco. Kinda plain but I like it.


Then I got this Monarch Ethyl globe from a fellow old gasser.


I got this 2 1/2 gal Owens Motor Oil can from another old gas member. I got this because my youngest son is named Owen. He thought it was cool. The Mobilube with the Gargoyle on it I got from Dustin.


These signs I got from the Vics auction. The Turtle Wax lights up.


Well that is all for me. Have a good one

I picked up these two signs ths last week. The Texas Armada sign has dome paint drips on it that needs to be cleaned up,anyone ever heard of Texas Armada Refining Co. This last picture is another find last week, although not gas and oil it is still a pretty neat old bike.
