  1. Another awesome find! I grew up poor and never had one but always loved em and still do.
  2. Ok, now that you’ve had the sign for a while and got all the well wishes, u need to let me have it for our museum. We definitely “need” that sign.:):)
  3. Bobby725, Keep me posted and hopefully I’ll be around to meet u Personally
  4. Blunderbuss2, It’s called shave ice to u island folks. U can put flavors on it and eat it. Suggest u don’t eat the Yellow shave ice!
  5. Yep I remember the Star and the Durant cars. I used to restore antique cars so saw a few. Great sign!
  6. Bobby725, I think u might be right. Close to same. The tricky part is finding the correct ring for the pole with the porcelain covering. I have one located in Texas but haven’t been able to buy it ye...
  7. The crown globes are among my very favorites of all the globes.
  8. Very cool find! Always wanted to find the sword off of a swordfish and can’t figure out what happens to all of them as a lot of swordfish get caught and eaten but few get taxidermy. Where do all the s...
  9. Sure would love to add those cross bars to our Museum collection at Lakeside Museum in Provo if u ever decide to part with em. Rough but pretty cool.
  10. U are an incredible Picker! Why haven’t u been selling me your big signs u don’t have room for or they’re not good enough for your collection? I know u find a lot more than u can possibly keep. Just c...
  11. Another beauty
  12. I’m old and remember the 40s pretty well as that’s when I bought my first Red Rider BB gun and became such a menace to about anything that would break. Unfortunately I don’t remember seeing those cool...
  13. Brunswick Thx Thomas & same to u. Isn’t life great in America?
  14. We recently bought a 5’ dsp Golden Cowboy Frontier sign and I’m try8gnto find what dates it was produced? I’m told it is the rarest of all the Frontier signs.
  15. Trey Thanks and Happy New Year to unas well
  16. Only u can find the winners! Happy New Year!
  17. Elanski Thx for the love it
  18. Elanski Thx for the love it
  19. Great sign! It was a drink that you could easily pass by, as I recall.
  20. Gonavy Thx for the love it. Merry Christmas. Gotta luv the USN!
  21. What an awesome find. It looks great with your other Coke stuff just the way it is.
  22. Merry Christmas. I can’t believe that with all the cool stuff u find u have never offered me any of the big signs u must have seen and passed up. Here’s your chance to repent and start letting me in o...
  23. Awesome pistol. I had one like it and traded it for a riding lawnmower back in the 70s. Been sorry ever since but kept the big lawn mowed for a long time.
  24. WatchSearcher, Interesting thoughts u have. I also wonder why more people don’t seem to have any interest in the magnificent Gypsie loads of stuff we haul across the Planet. It is very rare when anyo...
  25. WatchSearcher, If u can borrow a post hole digger from a neighbor or rent one it will help. Put a couple of bars of 1/2” rebar in it and attach it to some horizontal rebar on the upper part of the ...
  26. WatchSearcher Dig the hole and pour the footings and get that part over with. Then go and rent a tractor with a lift or a boom truck at your local rental place and stand em up. U need those things st...
  27. Purvis, Mostly I have it BIG. I like big stuff as u can see. I have space to put it and small stuff doesn’t show up. It is fair to say that I’m OC about it and it’s incurable I’m told.
  28. Merry Christmas to u too. I love it when people remember the reason for the Season.
  29. Awesome car! Dream car!
  30. Very nice lubster. Congrats. Merry Christmas
  31. Trey, Your kids can ride the “wild stallions” and take a train ride all in the same day.
  32. Trey, I’m hoping you’ll bring your kids and come ride in ours after we get it up,and going. It looks like the engine is shot and I’m looking for a replacement, so don’t come yet.
  33. U scored a couple of great signs when u got these two. I’d love to add them to our collection when I get tired of them. :):)
  34. Digitali5 Thx. I agree. We were sooooo lucky to find this cool sign. I’ve looked for so many years to finally score this one.
  35. Digitali5 Thx for the comment. I agree and I haven’t seen another one like it before. This came from Canada and perhaps they were more common up there?
  36. Trey, Thx for the love it and comment. The sign just made its way from Ontario to MO yesterday and is on its way to Provo finally.
  37. Trey, Rough and rare. Thx for the love it
  38. Trey. Hard to find em all together like this one, but I am dealing on another Cats Eye sign up North. It’s just not complete like this. And pricier, of course
  39. Trey. U need to bring those cute kids of yours when come to visit us. Tell em to bring their spurs!
  40. Trey, I hunted for Red Indians for years and then found 5 in one week and bought em all. Now the challenge is getting them from Canada. This one already arrived
  41. Trey, We have a lot of Mobil signs in the Lakeside Collection but non as big as this one. I think this may be the earliest one we have as well?
  42. Trey, thx. Have u ever seen one like it? I never have.
  43. Trey, Thx. You’re always a big supporter of my nonsensical collecting.
  44. AnythingObscure Thx for the comment. We are sooooo excited to get started on the restoration!
  45. Officialfuel, Thx for the love it
  46. Golgotha, U got the countless hours right. U forgot the countless dollars part:(:(
  47. Bobby725, U know how to find me thru Lakeside Storage in Provo right?
  48. Bobby725, Thx. I hunt signs like a dog hunts food and sometimes I’m lucky. I think I need your buggy in the Museum don’t I?
  49. U wanna great treat? Slice some spam very thin and fry both sides crispy so it breaks and use as a bacon substitute on a BLT and u will never go back to bacon. I grew up poor During the war and we ...
  50. Inky, Oops! I think u live in NZ? Also a land of opportunity. We loved the magnificent natural Beauty of each Island and kindness of the people.
