  1. I luv the pumps outside the gar doors! Very cool original pumps! Just the way I like em!
  2. So what did you think a truck load of signs would look like if not like this?
  3. Pickerknows, Thx for the love it
  4. Akrodog, Hmmm? I'm old and have no idea what that is nor how to find it?
  5. You've done it again!!! Awesome find! You will never be sorry. It's a beauty! I'd put it in my Will that this should be the Hearse that takes my coffin to the cemetery when that time finally arrives! ...
  6. Akrodog, Thx for the comment. I agree on the older logo being flashier than the later signs. Very lucky to find this one.
  7. Truckn20 Thx for the love it
  8. Repro yes. Cute yes. Desirable yes. Parts easily available for it no. Creativity required to repair it yes. I love it!
  9. More junk u don't have a place to store but I do. I can help u with this! Think how happy your wife will be:):):)
  10. I can't believe your feisty wife tolerates u bringing home all that "junk". I'll help your marriage and take some of it off your hands so u can get the place organized and keep peace in the home. :):):)
  11. U clearly don't need that Cadillac sign nor the Richfield Eagle sitting lonely in the corner. Let me help u lighten up a bit
  12. I need some of that cool stuff! U are still the king of Pickers!
  13. These were really bad guys representing a terrible govt, but had beautifully designed uniforms and hats! Very nice find!
  14. I was an early dirt bike rider back in the 50s in Calif when we "invented" dirt bikes by stripping down British bikes and converting sprockets suspension, tires, bars etc to make them lighter, faster,...
  15. What an awesome cool machine! Gotta love the guts of the guys that rode these bikes at those speeds!
  16. Very cool! Nice info too.
  17. Pickrknows Thx for the love it. Hard to believe how few love these cool porcelain signs?
  18. EJW-54, Not sure how many stations they ever had but probably a lot since they were around for a very long time. The 3 color signs are pretty cute & I love different shapes of signs mixed together.
  19. Trey, How do keep from getting rusty with all that rain?
  20. Trey, Yep!! I'm nuts! Just bought a full load of very cool stuff in S Dakota for the Event Center. Already have about 40 signs for it. Will need twice that to start! Life is good! U gonna get wet ag...
  21. Racer4four, Thanks. I had a chance to buy 3 of them last Oct in IL and was so overloaded I had to pass on the deal! I built a bigger, heavier duty trailer when I got home! Not as nice to pull but can...

  23. Chevelleman69, Thx for the love it

  29. Trey, Both sides about the same. Not perfect by any means but very nice for a sign like this.
  30. Trey, That must be the going rate as that's what we had to pay for this guy! Waaaaay too much but where you gonna find another one? They sure don't exist in Utah! The prices are out of control but th...
  31. Valentino97, Exactly! We often make fun of being a "Hick", and I am one, and this guy was actually named Hick and put his gas stations only in Hick towns! Pretty amazing I'd say! What a name; Hicksa...
  32. Another beauty!
  33. PostCardCollector, My wife has been encouraging me to change hobbies and collect something smaller, like stamps or Post Cards. I tell her I'm too old to change.
  34. TTomtucker, Thx for the love it
  35. Akrodog, Yep the sign has been touched up and clear coated on the side shown. The other side is very nice but has a few chips showing age. I have no issues with touch ups if they are disclosed. Isn'...
  36. AnythingObscure, Perhaps I can help? Getting older is very much like driving: the farther away you get from the origin, the smaller and dimmer it gets. Add time to the event and you compound the err...
  37. Yes! Those are my crutches leaning up against the tailgate of the truck. How else would you expect me to get back to the place where I had to climb up? Think "therapy".
  38. Blunderbuss2, Whenever I even look at bike riders and think about putting my broken, split in half pelvis on one of those seats it gives me a pain u can't imagine! Until they make a stratolonger rec...
  39. Blunderbuss2, U have got that right! My legs are so weak I feel like a rag doll as I slither out of my truck and my feet touch the ground. I always wonder if they will even hold me up. Somehow I sta...

  49. Trey, I should have mentioned that I don't let that slow me down a lot at I continue putting footings in the ground with my Bobcat and hope to stand a few signs later this week. Yes I'm slower but not...
  50. Trey, Thx for the well wishes but you're early as I'm not yet on my feet. Still in the wheelchair but perhaps this week they might let me try crutches for very short walks. We shall see?
