Thanks wfort39663 for your post. That pole thermometer is awesome! I have the lighter on the left but have never seen the one on the right. What does the double shaker say under the word Frontier?
The pump shaker you are missing looks just like the one you have.

But how about this shaker? I know several people who have this salt shaker but no pepper. I would assume the pepper looks like the Ultra-lube can but I have never seen one.

This is a Frontier/Beeline cardboard sign that I had framed. It advertises their credit cards.

And a paper kite promotional item.

The double shaker has the following print:

Come in and get tanked up

Ed's Frontier Service
Frontier
Oil Products

102 East Overland
Scottsbluff, Neb
Ph 380

I used to have a ceramic gas pump shaker that had the bucking horse logo but sold it.

Thanks Ric. I have enjoyed doing it. Now it’s someone else’s turn but not before I post a few more things.

Gas Pump Ronnie sent me some pictures of his famous cowhide Frontier pump. Many of you may have seen photos of this pump in the magazines or books. Gotta love the snakeskin pump hose! Thanks!

For those of you who are interested I did find out what RTG is. It was an additive that was put in their ethyl gasoline starting sometime in the early 1950’s. The pump in the middle in this photo has a Frontier RTG decal on the door. Didn’t scan well but I think you can tell it is different from the more common Frontier decal like the one on the pump to the right and on the door of the car. Also note the RTG decal on the fender.

That’s about it for this COTM. I want to thank everyone who contributed by posting or by allowing me to use your photos and photos that I have taken of your items. And thanks Jim for giving us this forum that allows us the opportunity to share our collections and interests with others. I hope you enjoyed it. I know I enjoyed doing it. And if you have any Frontier items for sale…well, you know!

THANKS AGAIN, CHRIS FOR TAKING THE TIME AND EFFORT THAT YOU PUT INTO THIS AMAZING IMAGE AND HISTORY FILLED COTM FOR FRONTIER. WISH I COULD'VE HELPED OUT IMAGE WISE, BUT THIS STUFF IN NEW YORK IS JUST UNHEARD OF. DON'T THINK I HAVE ONE SINGLE PIECE AND IF I DID, IT WOULD MORE THAN LIKELY BE A MAP! LOL!
