    This is the No Smoking sign we got up in Arimo Idaho last week and it fits so perfectly on the end door of the Texaco Station that it looks like it has always been there. The small signs like this sort of just blend in with all the rest of the stuff and no one ever even notices how pristine this sign actually is. Just us I guess? I still can't see paying $150 on EBay for a dumb little sign like this, but of course I'll spend $100 on gas to go to heck and gone and get one for $25 and think I saved a fortune! We don't count gas, tires, food, wear and tear when hunting because the Fun is the Hunt! Sort of like the price of the fish when you go fishing and think the fish was Free? Right! Try that with Salmon and Halibut in Alaska and convince your wife that the fish was free! Good luck! Keep on hunting as that's where the fun is! Sell us your extra signs after you fill the garage and basement.

      I'm 75 & can remember the gas wars in LA bringing gas below .20/gal. from time to time. Those were the days when El Segundo and all the areas around it all the way to what is now Miracle Mile, had pumping oil derricks in every direction you would look. For a bucks worth of gas we could "drag main" all eve on Sat nights & even take a trip to Hollywood to see the wild people. Those were the greatest days for a kid to grow up!

      Great write up! You are so right about all that...Say, did you all cruise Tweedy Blvd or Whittier Blvd back then? It was a big deal when I was younger...I mean yesterday!

      Do you remember when you could only get gas on certain days according to your license plate numbers, odd or even... haha my gas gage didn't work so I could get gas any day of the week! I forgot about that...$2 would fill up a bug and drive all week long! Sure miss those days...

      Oh, and nice sign by the way!

      I know where Tweedy & Whittier blvds are but I was from West LA & we didn't normally venture that far to cruise on the week ends. It was during the Jimmy Carter debacle that we had the gas shortages, price increases, rationing etc. he and several other Econ flunk outs need to stick to Peanut farming and let experienced buz people run our govt. Just a thought from a politically incorrect old duffer that remembers when America was the land of the free and was a Nation "under God".
