I have to add my two cents> You guys are too much fun. I love this stuff. This is the great escape for me. Ethan, you should see a picture of the globe that I put on one of my pumps. If I ever learn how to post... Yes another one who can't figure it out, I will post a picture of it. It is a lamp globe also that I thing looks killer on a pump. Your general store looks great! Rob

Hey we do what we have to do. I remember one time about 25 years ago, I couldn't afford a globe for a pump I was working on, so I bought an old milk glass vase that looked like a white fish bowl with a flat bottom. I turned it upside down, and wrote "GAS" on it with black paint. It fit in the globe ring. I was soooooo proud! Ha... Funny to think about some of the dumb things I've done.

Paul:

I'll try and find the time tonight or this weekend to shoot a couple of my signs. I would like to get values on them from some of the better informed people on this site. I am not really sure of their worth - but I'm sure that between all of us, we can come to a value. I'll post them as soon as I get done importing them into my computer.

Later . . .

T-way

Heres one for you Paul, explain this? why is there no white in the wings , I've had a lot of A collectors want it and theres an other one with no white so I've been told. its also Baby Blue on the back side, value about $25.00.

as you can see the word flying is striaght not curved like most most of the A signs, my brother got this sign for me from a ranch where it was used in front of a work bench , it had a few dings in it from parts dropping on it, and Paul the deco flying A sign was bought by Sweetwaterjr, he paid to much for it , and Gene Autry had signs just like that, we never seen those type signs down here ,

Well Mr. Seaside, to be honest I thought you made that one up yourself. I never seen anything like it, whats Mr. Flying A man (Craig) say about it. Now give us the straight story on this. Maybe we should start a new thread and show signs and keep replys only related to the signs shown. I want to see more rare signs, so I can learn something!!! Paul

Dwaine, That was a special sign that Tidewater oil company made during the 50's. The reason the wings were blacked out was so that the U.F.O's that were flying around the California would not see the wings and think it was another U.F.O.. This is a very rare sign, because most of them were destroyed by alians from Mars. Where did you find it....

Yea Mr. Seaside gives us the real low down on this rare sign, like I say, I know just enough to get myself in trouble. Was bidding on this flying A station sign and got an email from a guy in Ca. says thats a sign off Gene Autry's ranch, so I stop bidding and who gets the sign but his buddy. Paul

Hi, I as many others have stated it is very very very complicated to post pictures here! Why not something a complete computer geek can understand, such as..... click here? Larry

This is one of my favorite signs. It is from Australia. The graphics are really neat. Look at the V in the plume on top of the globe face. The sign has been cut off at the bottom. It would have been 3 Ĺ inches longer according to the original tack holes. There are small nail holes that stick out in the front and the back of the sign is painted. This indicates that the sign was nailed on a wall with the picture facing in. I guess that is why it remains in such good condition. I didnít pay much for it but it is one that I would never get rid of. Rex
