I was lucky enough to rate a pair of these rare Rebel ad glasses and since I didn't have the pump they fit I thought I'd mount them for protection and display. It didn't seem right to store them away. Thanks Griffin!.....GB

Nice buys shared so far...envious of a few. Not much for me, this week. The master technician plaque dates back to at least the early 1950's.

Dave,
Where did your Goodyear sign come from? Your problem sounds eerily familiar...

For the last two months , I have been in touch with Bob lee's publisher . Bob and I actually go back years as we originally met in Houston when I myself was in the process of doing a book on retail gasoline sales . Bob's first Book, Bowser is long out of Print . I just received the Middle two books , autographed of course , 10 gallons for a Dollar and Gilbert & Barker , both softcover . Last month , I got the Back to the Future book, primarily a book on Tokiem . I did a revue of the Back to the Future group on BOTH of my face Book groups , Vintage Filling station and Filler Up, All things Filling station .



see ya on the road folks !

This SHOULD have been my BOTW but Morphy's did a poor job of packing the sign. The shield points at 10 and 2 o'clock were bent over and the porcelain chipped. I complained, and to their credit they are taking it back for a full refund. Shame the sign got damaged though. They should know better. It was C9+ before this happened...

And given the high packaging fees they've been charging lately, it definitely should not have happened. That's rotten luck.

Done4, this sort of damage to corners is pretty common when you ship signs and the sign was not packaged properly. Could have been easily avoided. When I ship a sign I wrap it in wrapping paper (some painted signs will stain from the oils secreted by bubble wrap or plastic bags) and then I put the sign in a plastic bag or bubble wrap. I then tightly wrap tape around the sign. Then I cut a piece of cardboard one inch larger on all sides. Then I securely tape the sign to the cardboard ensuring the one inch spacing along the edges is maintained. Now, when (not if, but when) the shipper drops the package on it's edge the sign is protected by the one inch cushion allowing the cardboard to crumple without bending the sign. For heavier porcelain signs I secure the sign to a 1/8" piece of plywood cut the same size as the carboard wrap but leaving the one inch void along all edges of the sign.
