I did a last-minute impulse buy on eBay.
It was a Buick lubricare porcelain neon sign.
I got it for 3950.

It is eBay item number 291508638737
Does anybody have any feedback about the sign. I think it is an original and the price is reasonable? Any comments? Hopefully this is the right form for this. Thanks

I think you got a very nice sign at a very fair price. When that sign is cleaned up and neon put back on - it will look GREAT! It is definitely all original, and I think you will be very pleasantly surprised when you get it washed up and polished. Nice sign!

Nice buy. It looks totally original and the can appears to be in great shape. I'm a patina guy so I would take that in a heartbeat.

I feel like you did well also. While the sign you bought looks like the one featured on a prior thread, your's is probably made by a different manufacturer. I also have one as featured earlier on OG. It is marked on bottom right hand corner, John D. Ziller Neon, Meridian,Miss. The dot on the i, and the k in Buick, and the L and the flame on the dot on the i in Lubricare, don't have boxed areas behind them on ours. Your's appears to not have manufacturers mark on front. Just differences between manufacturers. You will enjoy it once you get the neon back on.
