The Nash painted tin sign I found on the inside of a ClearVision visible covering an access hole. A couple of other signs rather long in the tooth.

Now that's a sign with character and a cool story. I also remember someone recently finding one that a tree grew around as well.

Here is my worst, unfortunately my Fire Dept. caused the damage. We were burning an old house and garage in the country for a training burn, the owners assured us they had removed everything they wanted to keep and there was a lot of furniture and personal belongings in the house. the garage had workbenches along the exterior walls and lots of junk. This made for a realistic drill, during the overhaul I pulled a section of the garage wall down and this sign fell out with it. It had been slid in behind one of the benches. The woman who owned the place says "oh that was my Dad's, just throw it away" so I asked her if I could have it.

I bought this Good Gulf sign on eBay roughly a month ago. This sign was dug up near an old Gulf gas station in Laurel, Indiana. The second I saw this, I just had to have it. However, my family doesn't appreciate the character of the sign like I do.
