That's a beautiful picture from, I think, North Hollywood during the Eisenhower or Kennedy years. It's a few years before my time, but I've been interested in that era and its automotive culture ever since I cam acroos this article almost a year and a half ago about an East Coast phenomenom.

Quote
"For Giants fans, it's a lifelong commitment," Renstrom said. "Some would call it a sickness."

A sickness that actually made the Connecticut economy healthier on Sundays in the 1960s. Back then, home games were blacked out in local markets even if they were sold out. That meant people crossed the borders from New York to Connecticut to watch the Giants on what was then known as WTIC-TV, Channel 3, a CBS station.

It became a ritual for fans to visit bars in the New Haven area or rent motel rooms in Connecticut. The Yale Motor Inn in Wallingford was a popular spot, and some establishments offered special rates to lure fans from New York.

When the Giants-Packers NFL title game in 1962 was televised, fans from New York came as far north as the Berlin Turnpike to find motel rooms.
That game was on Channel 30, an NBC station. Because that signal did not carry as well as Channel 3, New Yorkers had to drive even farther into the state to watch the broadcast.

The blackout rule did not change until 1973, so the migration of fans from New York to Connecticut continued through the 1960s. Giants fans dominated the state.

Afternoon all, well all I can think about right now is frozen custard!

Back across town this morning to meet with Lawyer,and it didn't happen. Seems his assistant is out and the whole office falls apart,his daughter tells me to come in and he is court.
So we try it again in the morning. Fun- Fun!
This " Executor" thing isn't all that , but I'm going to be a jail house lawyer when its done.


Have a great night all!

Good point Randy. I cropped too much of the image. The connection outlined in blue screws into the top of the "T" where the round handle is located that turns on/off fuel flow to the swing arm spigot. The pipe exiting the top of the connection in question is the gasoline discharge pipe that ends at hose. It could be a check valve. If the swing arm valve at the "T" is opened so that gasoline flows out the swing arm to the spigot, what keeps gasoline from also flowing up the discharge pipe; path of least resistance? I hope this explanation makes sense.

Don't know anything about value but these signs were discussed on Old Gas before and I think it was determined that the signs were on generators back in the day.

Hey guys, found this forum using a Google search. I was looking at my mothers birth certificate and it said my grandfather was a station manager at Rebel Gas back in 68. I believe in Pratville, AL.

He worked for the Mobile Police Dept. when I was growing up but he did mention his brother being in the oil business back in the day, so maybe they worked together. I had never heard of Rebel Gas so thanks for sharing.

Still making progress and I want to thank everyone with this project that has contributed. I noted that along with the bug screen in the lite shade a plate is attached.. I surmise that this is a lite reflector for the face numerals and the pricer wheels. Does anyone have one apart for a pattern or have one that I might buy or copy perhaps to a polished aluminum sheet? Also there looks to be a larger plate on one side of the pricer wheels. I tracing of that would help too. Heck I don`t have a wayne 40 computer yet so still a long haul before I need lite....hee hee Thanks
