    Rattletrap

    It was coooold today as I checked the ground to see if we can dig a new footing for an awesome sign we can't wait to stand. We finally decided to build a fire on the ground and let it burn for 1/2 a day in hopes we can then dig through the frost line tomorrow. We shall see. I love these signs and have never personally seen another Veltex like this one except in a pix & it was on a normal straight pole? Anyone got pix of signs like ours at aaaLakeside Storage Free Museum?

      Great lollipop Gargoyle, it's hard to find the base and poles for those.

      Trey,
      That's a sign I got back in the 70s when I was restoring antique cars as a hobby and I thought most porcelain signs were junk! I liked the gargoil on this one so kept it. Young is dumb and I was still young!

      They were all junk to everyone, I heard one of my collector buddies tell a story of him and his brother and father buying a Pure oil sign standing right in front of the old station In Melrose Florida and they paid 50 bucks!!!!for it. It know stands in front of their body shop in Starke Fl.

      Trey,
      Exactly right. Remember also that $50 in the 70s was a fair amnt of money too. In those days I bought antique cars and rare parts for little money as I had very little. Signs cost near nothing. I am sure that I did not pay any more than $5-$10 ea for the Gargoil or WK signs as they came along with car stuff. A good visible pump cost me $25-$100 max in those days. They're were still lots out there & few collectors. I picked up about 10 that I just had lying in a pile until 2011 when my son suggested we restore a couple and display them at our Storage Park. That's what started this whole collection thing.

      Thx for the love it & nice comment. We finally ran away from home & the cold yesterday and came to S Utah where it's warm & clear & visited Zions Park again today which was beautiful. It was snowing at home 3 1/2 hrs North!
