Thank you for the add. I'm in California and have just started a new interest in old signage and gas station memorabilia. I love muscle cars and ride a Harley. I've ridden the Harley on the Lincoln Highway, (the original route) from Lincoln Park in San Francisco to Times Square NY, back in 2013. Along the way, I saw many, many old gas stations on the sides of the road, waiting for someone to come along and restore them to their old glory. If I had the time a money, I would be one of those persons. I look forward to meeting may of you in the forum. Here is a sign I acquired several months back. If anyone has any info they can provide me with on my sign, I'd appreciate any feedback.

Thank you. I look forward to becoming very educated here. I am one of those who love to find and keep. Hoping to find something, every now and then.

The stop sign was my first purchase. I came across the Texaco sign and I was simply DRAWN to it. It called my name. Its as if I couldn't help myself. I will not be making purchases like the Texaco sign very often, and most likely it would be most likely on a rare occasion. I picked up the Highway 50 sign, its from the 70's, only because I live off the 50 AND its part of the original route of the Lincoln Hwy. Thank you for the welcome!

Welcome to the site. I rode a lot of the Lincoln Highway over different road trips. Love the old roads, try to stay off the interstate when I'm on two wheels.
