Here's one from my buddy mr-f100-89.

He found it while hunting about 20 years ago. I am sure some of you will know were you might have read this before. Believe it or not there are still a few around this area............

Wow guys keep em' coming. That Chevrolet neon was found in a junkyard!?!?! WOW. Beautys, all of them.

Here's another more humble one. I rescued this one from the floor of this old guys barn. It was partially covered in dirt. You just can't leave this stuff lying in the dirt....no matter how damaged.

"LIGHTS OUT BEFORE ENTERING".

That brings back a lot of memories. We still have a couple of those around here also.

Wonder how many of our younger members know where that is from?

Here is a clue, it is where they hold submarine races......lol.

Submarine races were when you were parked by the lake.

I am never sure that what I try to do will work, but here goes. about ten years ago a friend of mine that knew I collected petro. called and said he had something for me, if I was intrested.This is a TRUE, story.He was installing a new septic tank in Weldon Ill. and when the contractor dug down to the lid, he discovered it was covered by not one, but two, Shell porcelain signs, sandwiched together. I could buy them if I would get a temporary lid to cover the hole while they worked on it.I did think quickly enough to get a polaroid camera to take a picture before I removed the signs. this is a pic. of them in the ground, and after I did a rough clean up.Which by the way is not not for someone with a weak stomach. The signs were mfg. by Artcraft, dated 11-37. There were condition problems, but the story, is almost as good as the find. I kept the sign for about 5 years, and eventually traded it to an avid Shell collector, Greg Harris, for a really nice Cities Service sign which I wanted. This is about as rough and dirty as it gets. thanks Norm Huff.

Great topic, SUPER SIGNS SAVED!

This was my second sign, I was just getting into gas/oil habit and was telling a friend about the stuff, turns out he had found this in the middle of the woods while surveying. He had taken it home and put it under his work bench in case he ever needed a chuck of steel that size. It had been there a couple years and he was happy to give it to me to get it out of his way.

We used to call them the "Passion Pit"!
The VCR and daylight savings time kind of did a number on them.
My wife's mother never liked it when we went there.LOL

Here are my finds.

The Imperial sign was found in a junk yard in Missouri. It is a little over 7 foot tall.


These Brake Service & Tires signs are from Goodyear. I have the sign that says Goodyear but some of it is cut off & it is covered in paint.



This 6ft Texaco was found on a farm covering a well. The other side is gone with no porcelain left.



This 30in Champlin was found on a farm in southern IL.



Not petro but this Janitrol Heating lexan sign was found in a dumpster by a co-worker of mine. It is cool anyway.



Wanted Owens Motor Oil & Mobiloil Gargoyle.
