  1. I need the flame and the porcelain cauldron in sits in. U have 3 so can surely part with one.
  2. RichmondLori That is so kind of u to offer to help. I’m 80 and spending my life’s retirement building this Museum for the public to enjoy. We hope that we get lots of good publicity from the Museum ...
  3. A great truck means you’ll be out chasing more great stuff. Maybe you’ll repent and start selling me some of it?
  4. Couldbe, Yes we will have additional shed roofs attached to the S and E sides to give added space for storage, bathrooms, food preparation etc. the Museum will be available to rent as an Event Center...
  5. Wow! Bet u had to pay up for that beauty
  6. Couldbe,jscotto363, vetrai50, Thx for the comments and well wishes. This was an old DOT building that was taken down and we bought it and are reassembling it to fit our needs. Very tricky as the enti...
  7. Cokeman1959 Thx for the love it
  8. Jscotto363 Sad it had to take all these years to finally get one but we have it now and are pretty excited to get it operating. Thx for the comment
  9. Theonlyone, Nothing free about this “pass” it took 2 years of work, meetings, rejections, engineers hired, thousands of dollars wasted but we finally got it approved to start. All this to have a Fre...
  10. Another awesome find. I love old ore carts. Yours is a great one
  11. Theonlyone, exactly what I thought myself. After looking closer I see that the globes are in the back seat of a 1963 pick Cadillac Biarritz that is parked inside the Sinclair Station at the Lakeside M...
  12. Kwqd Thx for the comment
  13. RichmondLori, Thx for the comment
  14. Beautiful vehicle! I love beautiful cars!
  15. EJW-54 It was on my list for many years and several got away from me. Too pricy!
  16. Trey, Thx. I’m thrilled
  17. Jscotto363 Thx. We love comments
  18. Officialfuel Thx for the well wishes. We just keep hunting and sometimes get lucky. Today was a lucky day
  19. It’s no wonder I can’t ever find any good stuff! U get it all before I even wake up in the morning. Nice additions!
  20. Hmmmm? I’d check those vases for radio activity as they could be dangerous. Beautiful but lethal like radium was.
  21. Alfred101 Actually my grandkids really would like to take it to the prom if they could. It’s got the snow treads on it for winter driving they say! I say it’s a little slow to go that far, but I’m o...
  22. Definitely a Wayne 60 Wide Body
  23. AnythingObscure Thx for the comment. I’m blessed with a wife who tolerates my love for rusty old junk and porcelain signs, even tho she doesn’t have the same interest I have. If it’s old I love it! I...
  24. Another beauty
  25. HansBrinker I think if u look at all the postings on CW with my skates on them I show most of my collection. I have about 10-12 sets I think.
  26. Hans, Thx for the info. I need to find a place to display the collection I have as no one ever sees them in the box they’re in.
  27. I need that for our Museum
  28. Coke1234’ My kind of guy! Gotta haul em when u find em
  29. Bobby725, Thx. I emailed u but got no answer so am trying this. Can u contact Lakeside.storage@gmail.com and send ph number and we will text/call.
  30. Dr.Duke, The 50cal is a dummy and is mounted on the back of a 1942 White Half Track we were told fought in the battle of the Bulge! Too bad so many young Americans have forgotten what was paid for t...
  31. Dr.Duke, Hoe is faster digging in Rocky material but uses up 3-5x as much concrete so is more expensive for the footings. Footings are a nightmare that no one ever sees!
  32. Dr.Duke I saw a pix of a sign like ours in a collection in Tenn and decided to make a couple for our Collection. Yes we made the perch for the Dino. Pretty simple to make. I see a lot of DX signs ...
  33. Wow! I keep reading about the Nuts running NY and am heartbroken the takers are pushing the producers away. Best of luck to you in your newest adventures. Lots of good Stuff in the South I hear. We go...
  34. Michael, Oops! Sorry for my sloppy error! Fixed it thanks to u. Thank u.
  35. Maryjo, As u can imagine, that little kid is the apple of my eye and rules the roost.
  36. Trey, Thanks. For some reason I don’t understand, Red Indian isn’t as popular in the USA as many other signs I think are less cool. This is a favorite of ours!
  37. Watchsearcher, That little guy will take on about anything and nothing’s too big for him. At least in his mind. :):)
  38. Blunderbuss2 Thx for the Love it. Surely u will know the history of this old logo?
  39. If it doesn’t look good you’re obviously standing too close! Back off and it’ll look perfect! That’s what I tell complainers at our place. Who needs perfect anyway? If you check in the mirror, we ...
  40. Elanski, Thx for the approval. We don’t have a lot of Shell stations where I live so this is a very hard sign to find in Utah. All the Shell signs we have are from other States.
  41. Trey, Families are a forever institution and the most valuable asset we have.
  42. Trey, It’s missing the 3 cute kids holding it up. That’s the biggest value!
  43. Trey, Every row is tough to hoe these days.
  44. Trey, Trade for a Big Signal Sign:)
  45. Trey. Thx. Sometimes when you’re turning every stone to find what u want, u also manage to find a few other things along the way. That’s what happened here.
  46. Trey, I’m still not finding a big Signal Gas Sign I can afford. Any ideas?
  47. Trey, Ask any of my grandkids or great grandkids and they will assure u that I was and unrecorded passenger on Noah’s Arc.
  48. Trey, So does that mean that I’m older than your grandpa?
  49. Yougottahavestuff I want your big A. Can u Contact Lakeside Storage
  50. I think it’s cool that u restored it like it would have been restored in the “day”. I have lots of patina pumps that show the signs of many restorations just like what you’ve done. Happy Easter
