    Recently seen at the Fresno Auction Company, this doo-dad from the early 60's perhaps. I recall seeing it many years ago here, but cannot recall where. I believe it was on a sign at a tire shop or gas station.

    World's biggest vacuum dashpot? :confused:

    Come on you old geezers!

    Where the hell was this chingadera when I saw it in Fresno 30+ years ago?

    No, I'm 100% sure I saw this on a gas station or tire shop in Fresno or the Fresno area.

    But it was 30 years or more ago, hence the call for my fellow old geezers to scour their memories for the clue to this metalwork riddle.
