I've been collecting for about a year now... Over 1,000 purchases on Ebay in one year. I religously checked ebay every day looking for these products.

I am in the process of clearing out my 50'x60' shop at my house. I am heating and cooling a 50'x40' area of the shop. I am constructing a full-scale 1950's-1960's Sinclair gas station in it. It will have two service bays with a 4-post car lift, a retail sales area, and an owner's office.

I started out wanting a few Sinclair oil display racks and a couple of "additives" racks for the station. I started with a Bardahl rack and a STP rack. Well, the more I learned about the cool artwork and products sold during that era the more I wanted... I now have 26 display racks!!! The ones pictured above are the ones I had staged in my garage and shot some pictures for one of my ebay buddies to show him my progress.

I have everything packed away waiting on my construction this summer. I have purchased many cans since these pictures to fill them out properly. I have all the display rack sign toppers (Wynn's, Bardahl, etc.). They are just packed away right now.

I am truly amazed how many cans I was able to find full and in great shape. At first I was so excited to see what I was looking for that I purchased whatever came along. I have learned a lot (from my own mistakes and over-zealousness) and only purchase what is in REALLY good shape. I just slowed down and became more patient. I would say that 90% of my cans are full.

Hey Don,

The STP Oil Treatment cans shown are some of the first cans purchased when I started collecting additives last year. They have the cardboard composite bodies on them. Since then I have learned a lot more about the products and their "generations" of cans. To fit in better with the era that I am shooting for I will eventually swap them out with metal cans. The reason I haven't already changed them is because of the relative ease of finding these STP products. I have been concentrating now on the products that are harder to come by...

Here is one of the more recent Wynn's purchases I have made to help fill out my display rack with the correct era of cans...

I hope that these are the types of items to post on this COTM. I haven't seen Pegasus on here yet, so I thought I better represent my favorite company! Just wouldn't be complete without the Flying Red Horse! Sorry if the photo is a bit fuzzy...I think it's time for a new camera.

Additives
Posted By: the poor mans museum Re: Collectable of the month - April - Sat Apr 19 2008 10:52 PM


From what I understand all of these additives have been laboratory tested and it was determined that the concentrate in the middle has the highest potential for generating gas. Not sure how scientific the study was because I read it on the internet?
