    When your home address ends with double zeros. I laid them out and it just kind of came to me. Some folks driving by might get it.

    What if your house number was only 7?

    Then you should add 32 to confuse the postman.

    Best I can do- my house is 124, which is incidentally the horsepower rating of my engine.

    That's pretty terrible.

    Extra points if you're named Tom Cullen. (Too far fetched?)

    Not so much the number, but the background it is on. The 55 Chevy outline was on the house we used to live at. The train shape is at our present house to honor my late father-in-law, who was a train lover. hn1.jpg hn2.jpg

    It was a slow day at work about 20 years ago and I had a leftover hunk of 1 inch thick aluminum from a fixture I built for production. My new house was almost finished and I didn't like anything I found commercially for house numbers so I gave that alum to my pal Scott that ran the cnc machining ctr and picked out a font. He said "are you sure you want the letters cut a half inch deep? that's going to have a real long run time as pointy as those numbers are" He talked me into 3/8 deep and I think we were still there at midnite waiting for it to finish. The next day I brought it to the powdercoat dept to get it painted silver and the guy said "what is it? a medallion for a steam locomotive?" I knew then that it was big enough (14 high by 22 long) number.JPG

    thanks man,
    I originally used stainless acorn nuts. but they are made of such a poor grade of stainless that they would rust and I had to replace them fairly often. I thought the cal custom wing nuts would be appropriate

    An additional design your 5800 address sign… But, get ready to answer all Mooneyes questions and current I.D. tags.


    Hello,

    When I finished my story on the Hill Acala Red Roadster for another thread, it was noted that the original dual Mooneyes was incorporated into Red paint theme. Not the “Mooneyes” as most everyone knows, but this is where the concept of Moon eyes started.

    This was the first example of the world famous “Moon Eyes” logo. The T-Roadster wore the “00” number and once a pair of pupils were painted inside the numbers , an iconic logo was born. Noted from the Acala Family... thanks…

    This one was spotted and photographed by @Dean Lowe in 1959.

    It's close, but not exact. The zeros are obviously different and color is opposite of the original logo.

    Nothing in my address to make anyone notice a thing.
    I feel very inadequate.

    Mine is 15362, one more number as in 4 and it would be a straight six Chevy firing order
     
  21. Hill Acala ran the double zero numbers long before there ever was a Moon Equipment company. When he started his company, Dean Moon actually asked Creighton Hunter for "permission" to borrow the eyeballs idea to use as his company logo. If you check out Creighton's "Slice of Pie" (which pre dated the roadster) you will see the double zeros hand painted on it just like the roadster. Creighton loved him some zeros!

    Or you can turn it over on Halloween to keep all the trick or treaters away?

  25. Mine's 1911. Not much car fun except maybe the first year for Chevrolet...? But it does appeal to my firearm appreciation side.

    You’d have a great place if your first or last name was Colt. :)

  27. Are you kidding :D. Thats a sure way to get the environment police in your back yard :eek::oops:.

  28. Some interesting ways to display addresses. Biggest thing to keep in mind is that it is HIGHLY visible and distinguishable from the street. Hard sometimes to see these 9-1-1 numbers from a fire truck or ambulance in the middle of the night. Ask me how I know....
