Because it's MLK day, I thought I would share a local piece of Selma, AL history! About a year and a half back I picked up this mint 6ft porcelain Cougar Oil sign that was still in its box! They were a small jobber out of Selma that had about 10 stations at the time before they rebranded to Pure. It shocked me to find such a limited piece that had never been used. And look at all of those colors! More confirmation, to my amazement, that it's still out there.....

I posted it on FB earlyier and didn't want to leave y'all out.

Enjoy and happy hunting!
