Hey,

Just got back from Peotone! We had a great time there, and saw some good friends and some new faces as well.

I found a few good items this time, but fell short of my goal of a globe or cool sign...
I got two nice DX maps, a very nice Faultless can and a DX Extrinol 6qt for my Sunray/Mid-Continent collection, and a sweet Johnson 5qt too!


Tara really scored big this time, too, with a big pile of Sinclair goodies:





Have a good one!
Wes

This one is a FSOTW: "Free Sign of the Week", guess I'll hang it on the outside of the barn. It needs a little more distressing.

The first item I'm posting was a gift from a friend and fellow oldgaser. What makes it unique is the original shipping envelope with a Dec. 23, 1966 postmark.


I got this mobile from ebay. It dates from the mid 1950's.


These printers blocks also came from ebay.


The Rubber Lube and paint came from the swap meet.



Wanted: Gas pump globes:Sinclair & affiliates, IL companies. Ripple bodies. Anything Sinclair, Stoll, Pierce, 4 Bros.

I picked up my first air meter, Sat. afternoon, it really pays to be friends with a man who removes underground tanks from old stations for a living. The name plate says it is a model 98 ECO. Now I have to get Jacks book on air meters. Will this madness ever stop?

This is my only pump. I always told myself I'd keep a Mae West if I ever found one in nice original condition. Well,I found it...




Original cylinder, no cracks, no missing doors, even had the original Texaco star globe in a metal body on it. As the older gentleman (who was in his 80s) told me: "You won't find one like that at the swap meets..."

I bought it from a collector who lived no more than 5 miles from where I grew up in southeastern Oklahoma.

I bought this 5 qt on eBay. Don't know much about cans and don't have any 5 qt cans in my collection.....all I have is 1 qt cans, but thought this was cool. Cleaned up nice. I read on this site how to clean up cans...used WD-40 , a soft rag, and followed up with some wax (Maguires scratch remover wax)....cleaned up pretty good. Doesn't have a lid, but going to have Dick Bennett relid for me.

Here's a before pic


Here's an after pic

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.

Thanks, Phil

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.
