I want to give a Shout Out and Thank You too; Dave Rowlison, Jeremy (Gilmore) and Mike (savex)...

I bought a copy of the Book "Roar with Gilmore"; which was hand delivered by the Book's Co-Author Alan Darr. Mr. Darr and I had a nice talk and in the talk he confirmed for me that from my house less than a mile or so away had once stood a Gilmore Bulk Plant and a Gilmore Gas Station (that is now a Restaurant).. I decided at that time, I needed a few Gilmore items for a small display.

I started out with a matchbook and two small pinbacks. Thanks to Dave, Jeremy, Mike and Ebay; my little Collection is now somewhat more presentable:



I am not giving up in my collecting of Associated/Tydol/Flying A/Veedol items... But, now I can pay a small tribute to those that sold Gilmore Oil and Gasoline Products in my small Community...

Thanks again, Guys!!!!!

(sorry, for being "long winded" in my story telling!)

My little Gilmore display has grown to where (IMO) it has become fairly presentable:



The large pinback in the middle of the Gilmore Stadium Programs; is from the 1995 Gilmore Heritage Car Show which is held still, at the Farmers Market in L.A. (the 22nd Gilmore Heritage Auto Show was held a couple of weeks ago, on the 4th of June 2016)

You really do a great presentation. I bet folks who visit you often, see something nice they missed each time!
