PS how much is the 3 panel PARCO map? Has a tear, bottom right, end folded over or gone. Fold area on left dented in & what does the bottom left corner look like? Maybe 1928 to 30?
Has anyone ever seen these? I’m driving quite a distance to look at one and I’ve noticed 3 pop up in the last month (2 different versions - Staroline and Staroleum). Just curious if anyone knows anything about them or has seen one in an old picture. Legit??
Hello Old Gasser's. For though of you who are going to KRAMER JUNCTION GAS BASH I am looking for 1929 & early Gas Station Road Map's. If there is someone who has some PLEASE give them my Cell #. It is ( 951 ) 206 -4685. Thanks, GENE
Started noticing that the bigger call box models are waning in price and want. Lots of it could be shipping or just disinterest like some of the other antiques or Pedal cars. Age of some of the collectors, price, and then what to do with them as they are heavy. I know, have lots of heavy stuff that seems only I enjoy.
I have a question about the 42" Flying A button signs. Did they make one version with an embossed 'notch' near the mounting holes and one without?? I know the six footers have the 'notch' and I've seen the 42" with and without the 'notch'. So I was wondering if they made the 42" both ways, or if I see it one way or another, is that a red flag for something? And do they repop the sign in metal, or just fiberglass (for now)?
The first pic is the 'notch' around the mounting hole (it shows up better on the back side). The second two pictures are without the notch. The fourth picture just shows the overall sign.
