Great stuff so far, guys! Scott, you have some really good Cities Service quarts. Your red Aero Oil is still the only one I have ever seen. Here are most of the Cities Service quarts I have, there are still a few more at my dad's that I will try to get pictures of later in the week. I apologize for the glare from the flash on some of the cans.

Here is the green version of the Aero Oil quart. I had this one for a couple of years, but sold it when I bought my house this spring. It's still one of my favorite quarts out there.

If you look closely at a lot of the the Cities Service quarts out there they have small differences. My early blue Anti-Freeze w/ the glacier has the "Cities Service" in the clover logo. I believe Scott's has the "Cities Service Once-Always" in the clover logo. Sorry for the flash on this one.

Another group of cans with a number of versions is the fairly common gold Cities Service 5D. There are actually three versions I know of: the Multi-Range in the small rectangle, the SAE 5W-20, and a 10W-30 version that I do not have. The 5D version shown on the edge of this photo with the burst is quite uncommon.

Aaron, You are correct about my blue glacier having the "Once Always" logo. Have never seen the blue Trojan can before. Here is one from my brothers collection.

Aaron, I was standing behind you at Iowa Gas when you bought the blue glacier can waiting for you to set it down, you didn't. LOL

Scott, I looked for that blue glacier can for a long time the chances of me setting it down were not very high. lol. I have seen that red Anti-Freeze can of your brother's in pictures, but have never seen one for sale. My blue Cities Service Trojan quart is the only one I have ever seen and I actually bought it at a local flea market about 10 years ago, I believe I paid a whopping $18 for it. I haven't regretted that purchase at all, lol.
