Hi Everyone,
I'm a newbie into the petroliana collectibles and also new here. Trying to navigate my way around this site and hopefully post a picture or two. I was looking for a gas pump and found one through a friend at a poker game, he said his Dad had one sitting out front of his garage. They are getting up in age and would have to move soon so, "it would be one less thing to move" said their son. I went there the next day and found this! When I came back a few weeks later to pick it up, I noticed the missing door glass laying in the bottom and frozen into the ice. I borrowed a hair dryer but needed an extension cord. That's when he opened the garage door and there on each side of the window were these highway signs. I looked at my brother with wide eyes and he just nodded his head. That was a good day, I came home with the pump and signs. It's funny how a chain reaction of events leads you to find some cool stuff, thanks to the frozen window glass in the bottom.
