    Had to run to town today so I stopped at an Antique shop downtown and found these 3 maps from the 30's marked 1$ each, wow! so I grabbed them then I spotted this Lubrite can behind some stuff, it was filthy covered in grime marked $35, I got maps and can for 28$, not to bad I think for an Antique store. I could tell the can would clean up good, has rust and dents but looks good.

      I stoped at an antique store last year during vacation, I had to get my fix I guess you could say. I hit the mother load on oil cans ,they were marked any where from 25 to 45 for larger cans. I bought so many they gave them to me for 25 a piece, and they were all very good condition one real rare, my red dino sinclair can.
