    Man am I a lucky collector! I've been watching for something really cool to come in to the scrap yard and finally someone dumped a bunch of metal letters. I noticed them right away and what caught my eye was the "F" and I new it was Firestone so I turned my loader around and found all the letters you see here. The letters are heavy metal and under the red paint is white porcelain! You can see also it was originally lit up with Neon!
    My boss accepted my offer and now they are mine. I will strip off all the paint and see what the porcelain looks like and will have Neon put back on these in the future. For now I have to find some wall space for these!

      Love the Firestone letters but I can't help but be mesmerized by the Sunoco can.
    5. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      Wow, what a find! Must be time to build a fantastic new shed to mount this. I'm sure your fantastic old shed is getting pretty full!
    6. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 4 years ago
      Gotta go on the Living room wall where everyone can see em!!! I'm sure that will be an easy sell to your wife? :):):)
    7. Rattletrap Rattletrap, 4 years ago
      OK it may take a little "convincing" at first, but I got my wife to let me put a beautiful full sized Canadian cedar Canoe hanging from The ceiling in our living room, so it can be done! :):):) it'll be an easier sell when they're white.
