Just curious, do any of you guys collect or have in your collection auto sale, garage signs. Not the major auto brands but small independent guys. I have collected a few and have the small arrow signs but these are my favorites. Sure would like to see some others if you have them, Thanks

Here's my Service arrow. My "Buick Used Cars 24 months to pay" sign is a major brand, but I spent 37 years at a Buick dealer and that's what I got. wink

Wow...some killer pieces. The "bank rates" sign is amazing. Would love to see that one lit up with glass/neon. It NEVER gets old seeing pics like these, never. Thanks for posting them.

Here is the one wood sign that has survived from parent's garage. The 'Place' sign didn't get saved but at least 'Coopers' did. I had to replace the two back support boards. I decided to leave the letters as is rather than repaint them red. They have a great patinated aged look. It finally was put up this summer after being stored outside for more than 45 years. The other photo is myself with the sign in situ when I was about 4 years of age so over 60 years ago. Since my parents owned the building rather than being a lessee they had more control over what was used for their signage and what brands they wanted to carry.
