  9. We have one to, my wife wanted one and a friend bought a new one for us, I do keep my eye out for an old one as they date back to the 1930's.

  19. Lots of fakes for sure, any tips on the fake ones compared to this one ?
  20. Now there's a name I have not heard in a long time!
  21. Nice it's older than mine and might be the first one Eco built mine is 1950's so your's is. 1940's or older
  22. Sure Rattletrap, I got most of the info on www.oil150.com , Quaker State History search and Sterling oil and gas History. Have fun!
  23. Nope Rattletrap, there's info on who and when they started but not any on how many or how long they lasted and not very many photos either.
  24. Looks a lot like one my family has from my grandparents. Love it!
  25. It sure is Rattletrap! especially as Sterling stations were only in NY,PA,WV and Ohio.
  26. Your welcome :)
  27. I did find a Photo of a Sterling gas station with 1959 cars and your sign so 1920's to 1960 maybe.
  28. Also it was not the Sterling brothers of Humble oil.
  29. My research showed it started in the 1920's, Both Sterling Oil of Quaker State and a seperate Company "Sterling Oil Co. of West Virginia" had Sterling Gas Stations in the 1920's and 1930's in NY, PA a...
  30. Nice sign! Rattletrap, check my post "Sterling Oil Sign" I listed some history.
  31. Theres no cure Rattletrap, unless you run out of money or credit but then you can start trading doubles for new stuff LOL
  32. Nice! One of these is on my "want list" brings back memories sitting in a booth at a "Your Host" restaurant 25cents for 3 songs :)
  33. Cool. I wish I had saved the ticket stubs for the concerts and sports events I went to in the 70s

  43. Nice!! When I was working at the scrap yard my Boss had one just like yours in nice shape but wouldn't sell it to me :(
  44. It might even be from an old car model T Ford, someone else on here should know for sure.
  45. Nice Trey! did the doors come with the SS trim ?
  46. Actually Rattletrap I did some research and Colonial did not own ESSO, it was owned by Standard Oil of New Jersey, I had the idea that Colonial owned it from my ESSO Pump that has tags inside that say...
  47. If I'm not mistaken I believe Colonial gas co owned ESSO.
  48. Cool Trey! glad you found doors and looking forward for update pictures!
