    Just checked the current address and found a house in a residential neighborhood. Probably a guy trying to make some extra bucks and help make some hot rods cooler doing it!

  4. Judging by the phone number that was a long time ago, mid to late 50's perhaps.

    No new info, but it's a neat piece of history for sure.

  9. A quick Google search found me a name and a phone number for that address. Last name Thibodeau. Might be fun to call the number and ask if they might be relatives. It could even be the wife of the louver puncher. They might even have the old press in the garage, beside his 3 window they just couldn't bring themselves to sell (until now).

    Whoops, time for my medication :(

    Pure Gold right there. I think that's better than any petroleum or tire sign.
    I don't collect signs, would be proud to hang that one.
