  1. Very nice lubster. Congrats. Merry Christmas
  2. Trey, Your kids can ride the “wild stallions” and take a train ride all in the same day.
  3. 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.
  4. 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. :):)
  5. 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.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. Trey, Rough and rare. Thx for the love it
  9. 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
  10. Trey. U need to bring those cute kids of yours when come to visit us. Tell em to bring their spurs!
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. Trey, thx. Have u ever seen one like it? I never have.
  14. Trey, Thx. You’re always a big supporter of my nonsensical collecting.
  15. AnythingObscure Thx for the comment. We are sooooo excited to get started on the restoration!
  16. Officialfuel, Thx for the love it
  17. Golgotha, U got the countless hours right. U forgot the countless dollars part:(:(
  18. Bobby725, U know how to find me thru Lakeside Storage in Provo right?
  19. 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?
  20. 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 ...
  21. 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.
  22. Inky, I can’t remember what I said, but if I said u have cool stuff it’s because u have cool stuff. I find that too few people express their feelings of delight when they see cool stuff and I try to ...
  23. Inky, Thx for the Love it. This is definitely a favorite of all our signs.
  24. Antique Toys Thx for the love it
  25. Antique Toys Thx for the love it

  27. Antique Toys Thx for the love it
  28. Officialfuel Thx for the like it. This sign came from Ontario Canada.
  29. Sorry to tell u the bad news, but there’s no hope for curing what you’ve got! Sign Collecting is terminal! You’re not alone however, and u have a lot of good company in your “disease”. Hope this news ...
  30. Manikin, Thx for the compliment. I feel so happy to have found it and since finding it I have found 3 more in 3 weeks and bought 2 and working on the third. It all happens at once and we can’t ever ...
  31. Purvis, Sign prices have gone nuts lately and it is ruining the hobby and pricing us out of it. Hard to believe we are paying all that hard earned $$$ for a sign from a now defunct old oil company?
  32. Gotta luv that decor! Beautiful!
  33. Never heard of it but it’s very cool! I love your collection
  34. Another beauty!
  35. U have awesome stuff on the walls! I luv it all!
  36. Great sign as well as the others I see on the walls

  38. Officialfuel, Thx for the love it
  39. Officialfuel, Thx for the love it
  40. Officialfuel, EJW-54, Watchsearcher, vetrail50, Thanks for the love it. Not many people seem to really love these cool porcelain signs?
  41. Blunderbuss2, It’s good to hear u again. Been a long while since u commented on my junk pile. Glad I could finally find something that moved your juices. For me the signals and signs are a reminder o...
  42. Fhrjr2, We mostly have the drop gates but in the Country we still hear the whistles blow near the road crossings in Utah. Great fun for kids!
  43. Fhrjr2, I love the air whistles but if I lived near the tracks I wouldn’t! We just had a huge Steam Engine come and visit Provo and it ran its whistle at the Crossing s and people hated it. We used ...
  44. Watchsearcher, Old people like old things and we don’t throw things away. If u grew up poor u learned to save, repair, Patch, and do without and be happy.
  45. I checked and my memory was correct, even tho I’m not sure what the difference actually is. I also remember the big factory in downtown LA just off the freeway that produced it.
  46. I’m not a Beer drinker, but seem to remember that when I was a kid a few friends who drank Beer referred to Country Club as “Malt Liquor” and that it was somehow “stronger”, or more intoxicating than ...
  47. AnythingObscure, Clarification: actually the picture is the one that was sent to me by the guy that I bought the signs from in Okla. The Goodyear sign just happens to be leaning on the wall next to t...
  48. Jenni, Thx for the comment. You’re exactly right. In the “old days” it was common to give the slang terms for appliances that everyone could easily recognize based upon their history. I remember bei...
  49. Trey, I just got a notice from CW that I’ve been “unsubscribed” and will no longer receive comments from this page? Really? Free speech doesn’t exist on CW? I hardly make incendiary Or harmful comm...
  50. Trey, I guess I wasn’t clear, but I have the bottom half as well as the numbers as the sign was complete when we bought it. I just didn’t take a pics of the rest of it as it’s still in cardboard pack...
