Those SOLITE globes are cool - does anyone know if the repo makers are planing on making a SOLITE 13 inch globe in the future? I would love to have a red crown, red crown ethel, and SOLITE in the middle... That would ROCK!

Can anyone tell me the years my RED CROWN "frying pan" sign was used? Bob posted the sign on this thread Jan. 11. This thread page 2. It's probably a barn hanger but doubt if I'll ever be able to own a better one.
Thanks,
Rod

These items are from Standard Oil of Nebraska. This company was supplied by Standard Indiana and eventually merged with them.

Pan Am owned half of American Oil Company (AMOCO) when Standard bought them. In 1933 Pan Am bought the remaining half of AMOCO.

Here are a few Amoco globes.

Standard Indiana bought several producers, refiners and marketing companies. Midwest Refining was one of them. Midwest owned Utah Oil Refining Company, or UTOCO.
Here are a few items from UTOCO.
