7 miles from Texas in Louisian...
When Scott was in Tulsa to visit Maurice for the Chilli Bowl he posted Pictures of the pole sign collection that was dispayed outside...
http://www.oldgas.com/shoptalk/ubb/Forum4/HTML/002031-2.html
Maurice (souperhigh)took me over there the first night I was there and boy was it cold!!!!! Maurice said that he has been trying for years to see what was inside the buildings.
The next day when Ray (hotcider) and his wife Mary Sue came in to visit and to see Maurice 's collection (which is one fine collection) we were talking about this place with the sign poles. Christina (maurice's best half) called the office and someone answered!!! She explained who she was and said that friends from California and Louisiana were in town along with her husband was wondering if there was any chance that we could get in to see what had to be an awsome collection. The lady on the phone said that she would call her back....BINGO!!! she did call back and asked how many would be coming and that her father in law would pick up some lunch for us and to be at the compound in one hour!!!!
maybe it was the luck of the Irish that I brought with me or Ray and Mary brought the luck with them. How long have you been trying to get in there Maurice?






You can see in the picture above that there is racks of signs, and sign rings/ frames. another rack for just poles. Racks of neons waiting to be restored and in the back buildings were full of signs that have not been hung or cleaned yet!!!!!
Ray took the first two pic's and t pic's 3 and 4 are from Scott on the orginal post......
Guys and Gals this is gonna take awhile because I live in a rural area and all we have is dial-up.

More to follow.

First I need to say that we did not go into the buildings with the signs that have not been or waiting to be hung. I know this is because I asked the owner.

.
.
.
In this building (picture below)he stores his chopper...you know the kind that flys!!!! that is how he found most of his signs. It was also loaded with collectibles and had a loft that had 4 or 5 old coke boxes that was converted to couches and had the holes thru out the floor for the golf balls that all collected below. included was a stocked bar and etc., etc....thru the window below was the helicopter.
