I have lived 25 miles from Halltown,MO for 58 years and never knew that Gary Turner had that station there....I go right by on I-44 at least 3-4 times a month and never even think about the old road through town. That's what the interstate highway system has done to us....I need to get out more.

Here's a very few items that have not already been posted. The green-white Power X bank is kinda rare. I have at one time had another of these and I have seen maybe one or two more. Either Sinclair or an individual dealer had decals made to go over the HC which can be seen through the decal if you look closely.

The dinosaurs are from 1964-1965 if I remember correctly. They are just figures made out of plastic, not banks as the green dino's usually are.

The man bank is probably just a fantasy piece. I had to have it because it has my name on it.

The Sinclair Refinery Co. sign is wooden with green background and gold leaf letters. If you look on page eleven of this thread, the ninth picture from the bottom shows a station from the 1920's-1930's that has this sign hanging on the front of the building just above the door. Sundropman posted the picture on March 10. Hope you all enjoy.....Dale

This is probably my favorite piece out of my collection.This Sinclair charger that still works. I water sanded the porcelain sign with 2000 grit sand paper and it took the blue over spray off and cleaned up well leaving only a small chipped spot. I had a friend of mine restore it and also without me knowing he was going to do it, cut a piece of plexiglass and heated it until he formed it like the original cracked piece and it came out perfect.

Plexiglass has to be made because the old one was cracked
