  1. Purvis, I confess that I’m just a Bottom Fish Collector and don’t know many of the big league collectors. We’re nobodies in the Collectors world, but do have the largest Pole Sign Collection around. ...
  2. Purvis, What collection did I miss and where is it?
  3. AnythingObscure Great questions and a few years ago I probably could have told you but these days I seem to be short on exact history of many of the old Oil Companies. I think ElRico was located in E...
  4. Forgot to ask where u are? We’re in Utah
  5. This is the one we need at aaaLakeside storage for the free Museum. Contact me & let’s talk.
  6. U still got that pole buggy under the tarp that u might want to Part with to a good cause? We could use a buggy at our free Museum at aaaLakeside Storage Museum. Check us out. We buy all kinds of old ...
  7. U ever decide to Part with some of your Yard Art please let us know at aaaLakeside Storage Museum in Provo Ut. We love old stuff, Never resell, and make it all available to the public To see for free.
  8. That’s a lot of horses to get out of a non supercharged engine. What is it? I love old stuff and we have a Museum filled with gas/oil signs, cars, planes etc that is free to the public and am always l...
  9. Purvis, Our place sits next to a river that empties in to a huge lake and we are inundated with Midges all summer and the spiders love em and build webs any place where there are lights. The lights o...
  10. EJW-54 I’d like to find another 25-50 big Barn Hanger signs to hang on the new Museum Bldg were gonna build soon as a dual purpose building. Museum and Event Center where people can rent a “Night at ...
  11. EJW-54, Yep! I’m cheap. Try to never buy a sign that isn’t a great buy and have to pass a few up that are dreamer prices. Part of the fun of the hobby is finding the right signs at the right prices ...
  12. EJW-54 Hope to see u out there someday when we’re both scouring the Country for treasures others left behind. Always room for a couple more goodies! Don’t know why u haven’t ever sold me any? U seem...
  13. Trey, Exactly! Everyone should understand that.
  14. Watchsearcher, Gramp is nuts and the kids like it!
  15. Racer4four, Grandkids think it’s normal to live in a Museum with toys. It’ll be interesting when they grow up and find out that what they thought was normal isn’t normal at all. Maybe it’ll be like...
  16. Watchsearcher, U got that right! When your load is good enough to have a train in the switch yard stop and ask u about it and what’s on it u know u have a great load of stuff!
  17. Trey, U got to read closely. I bought the sign from a collector from Michigan who was at the Iowa Gas show and he hired Tim, who was at the show, to haul it to Lawrence for me as that is a lot closer...
  18. Watchsearcher, Thx for the comment. Yes I buy signs all year long on the Internet etc and finally go on a trip and gather them up from a few places where they get stored with collector friends. Great...
  19. U scored another beauty
  20. AnythingObscure Thanks for the comment and love it. The interior is mint condition and is Burgundy in color. I’ll post pix when I get home, but am out of State for a few weeks. It was a fully restore...
  21. OLECODY, Actually I shortened the story so I didn’t bore people. It was after a rare rainy day and there was tall grass along side the Pacific Coast Highway (101) where we lived & when I grabbed a ha...

  23. EJW-54 Thx for the love it
  24. EJW-54 Thx for the love it
  25. Blunderbuss2 Once again your observation is very astute and spot on. Just waiting for the wax to go on sale.
  26. Blunderbuss2 Yup. We do a lot of traveling these days to get good stuff we can afford. These pumps were local so we paid a little more than we would have paid if we had to drive across the planet. I’...
  27. I need that sign in the Lakeside Museum. It’s a beauty!
  28. Watchsearcher, Good eyes! Yes I married up! Waaaaay up! Cute, game, fun, smart, and a great wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. Yes the sign is pretty cool too but nothing like her!
  29. Toyrebel, I actually prefer Pepsi myself, but don’t drink pop anymore so just leave it for the visitors, and grandkids
  30. Pickrknows Thx. We just got another nice one in Northern Montana this week. Gotta get em when u can. :)
  31. Blunderbuss2 Sounds a lot like the vocabulary of an Island dweller.
  32. Blunderbuss2, Exactly! We both know how one ought to dress when it’s warm outside. Not sure what the rest of the world is thinking when wearing hot covered shoes in the Summer? I’m a slippa kind of g...
  33. Blunderbuss2, I told the tv guy when he called that he better come in shorts and a tee shirt when he arrived as that would be the way I would be dressed. The camera man came dressed appropriately, bu...
  34. Blunderbuss2, Are there any other shoes? It’s Summer, hot and covered shoes are only for serious snow I thought?
  35. AnythingObscure, We hot the traffic signal from a barn in Clarkston Utah, a tiny farm town on the border of Idaho. It was quite the surprise as we were picking that day and saw an old Truck in the f...
  36. 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. Por...

  44. Brunswick Awesome! Glad u know what they are. There is a whole group of collectors of these and they are as OCD as us porcelain sign collectors. I have a couple of friends that are in to them and one...
  45. AnythingObscure, I fully agree. Our little grandkids think it’s normal to have pet Dinosaurs, Carousel horses, antique airplanes, antique cars, trucks, military vehicles, steam tractors etc etc all ...
  46. Billretirecoll Matt jr. is the grandson on the hand of Bob with his dad proping him up from behind, Matt jr looks more like Bob than he looks like his dad. Hmmmmm?
  47. Officialfuel Thx for the love it
  48. Akrodog, We have a lot of cool neon signs but none with neon as it attracts the bugs in the nice months and bugs attract spiders and spiders make webs and webs are a nightmare to clean up weekly. Fre...
