Bob, you're right, that Wadhams stuff is hard to find. And yep, it's like looking through two haystacks but I keep meeting so many great people. Each willing to share knowledge or keep an eye out for me. So, I've got the pitchfork and I'm going after them one at a time.
What a group, what a hobby.

BOB,I worked in the oil industry and was a Mobil Distributor for 16 years in Miami,Fl; I picked up very little in Miami always working.Nita would give a guy money to buy me oil stuff when he went to shows for gifts for my birthday or Christmas etc....here is a 1980 Christmas morning picture of my first Mobil and Atlantic globe that Nita gave me (ain't it great).

I only had a few Mobil items when we retired to Kentucky in 1997,thats when I started collecting as a hobby.
I have been blessed with a GREAT wife.
Thanks Rex

I was working for the Superior Oil Company in Houston, TX when they were acquired by Mobil in 1984. At the time I was into old cars, but at the Pate Swap Meet that year in Fort Worth I spotted a small cone-top can of Mobil touch-up paint and a tin toy Mobilgas tanker truck........and, well, you can probably figure out the rest. Sold the can a few years ago, but still have the truck.........

As I mentioned earlier, the first Pegasus trademark / logo image was used by Vacuum Oil Company South Africa in 1911, and the flying horse was white rather than red. Following are pictures of an interesting paper item that features the white Pegasus. It’s a six-page “brochure” that contains sheet music for a song entitled “Pegasus – Pegasus, Every Time”. It’s written in both English and Afrikaans and measures 10” x 12”….so it’s slightly larger than my scanner bed. Shown here are the front and back covers…..








The inside front cover includes this image of a gasoline pump and a square Mobiloil “A” can…….





The can look familiar but not the pump…..it appears to have a clock face……maybe one of you pump guys can tell use something about it. The oval globe is what caught my eye………..I’d guess the letters are white on a red background. I WANT ONE…..I WANT ONE!!!!!

The song is kinda hokey, as you can see from these images…………








This document probably dates from between 1911 and about 1930. Notice the words between the red diamonds on the second image just above……..I’m guessing the meaning of “hooters” in 1920’s South Africa was slightly different than in the U.S. at the end-of-the-century……………but I could be wrong!!!

Bob - that is in fact a porcelain globe that would have been displayed on a Gargoyle Oil cabinet.

Here's a couple of license plate toppers attached to old Nebraska plates that were submitteed by "danceswithpumps". Thanks Rod!!
