    Rattletrap
    (600 items)

    We got this fairly nice Dino sign from a friend in Wyoming last year and finally got the pole and the 3 D Dino to go on it and stood it all up just after a hailstorm. That makes 218 signs on poles at the Lakeside Museum in Provo. Said to be the largest pole sign Collection in the World.

      LOVE this one -- there's actually another Sinclair sign probably much like it (but sans its dino above...) not too far from me here. Though it got repainted many yrs ago when its station building became a liquor store instead, the original name/dino (on the sign) now clearly shows thru the fading spurious 2nd paint job. OH how, every time I see one of your fresh signs Rattletrap, I wish I could 'rescue' it and plant it in my backyard instead... <LOLOL> :-) :-) :-)

      AnythingObscure,
      Go after that sign! They are getting soooo hard to find u have to jump on every one that pops up! Thanks for loving our Stuff.

      If I had the resources you have RT, it very well might be standing in my backyard instead right now. (where actually, I might or might not want to 'restore' it to its former Sinclair logo...it's actually strangely charming in its own right as it currently exists...?) Alas I do not, so have to settle for just watching out for it...
      ;-) :-)

      There's actually a 2nd illuminated sign/post on the same property that probably first held plastic Sinclair panels, though they've long since been replaced entirely with new ones of the same shape.

      AnythingObscure,
      The plastic signs had a different kind of pole that is much lighter. Essentially just pipe. I had a plastic sign and pole given to me by a bulk plant in Idaho a few years back.
      Porcelain seems like a good way to invest a retirement portfolio. That’s what I’m doing with mine. Still working st 79 and not planning on retirement just yet.
