I had to share this photo and story with you guys. About two years ago, a guy ran a sale on ebay with one of these cans. I bought the can, and asked if he had any more. He said he had 7 of them. They had come from the basement of an old guy who had worked for "Air Speed" out of Amarillo, Tx. They were all full and of course metal cans. I only collect the full ones (yes, I know shame on me) so I made a deal on all of them, except for the two empty ones. My wife thought I was crazy spending thousands for a bunch of oil cans.
I kept the best one, and sold the rest.
Just had to share a fun story.

Don,
Very nice image of the plane on that can. You have very expensive taste, but I love it.

AWESOME CANS. I passed on one a few years ago at Dixie Gas. I wish now that I would have bought it. Thanks for posting pics. Scott
