  1. This checkered flag used to be on a pole out front of the Service Center speed shop in Torrance. It is 2 sided, light inside and had neon around the outside. I currently have it in the classifieds....Oops, spam.

    Couple of Coca-Cola signs. First one is about a 10 minute walk from my house.

    Second one is located at the corner of Court and Winter St in Keene,NH. One block down from that is a sign for Parrish Shoes, which was the fictional company in the movie Jumanji that was filmed in the Keene area back in the early 90's

    I have a old church just East of Cincinnati that I bought and converted into my office/hangout/garage get away. I have just as much fun with the sign and junk as I do with my cars. Hope you like it!!!

    Cool Art of the trucks, Man you need to do some gasser art. Maybe a little truck named Old Boston Hauler. If you need a cool little wrecker check out Cooters. I might know someone that would buy that art. Great work and website!!!

    Not a lot of neon signs advertising miniature golf courses still out there. This is an especially nice one - Clearlake, California.

    Bought a bunch of parts from a guy the other day and he had this in the cow barn, had to have it. Not sure what CTA stands for, our best guess was Chicago Transit Authority. Can anyone confirm that? Anyone know when they used these? It's pretty heavy, cast iron.

    I want to find a way to hang it on the wall but it seems a shame to cut that stump off of the bottom.

    The Illinois Railway Museum has at least one railcar with that logo on it. I'd guess 1950's. Nice find!

    Not technically a sign but a great piece of old advertising. A fiberglass set of the Pep Boys.

  27. Here's one from my childhood.....this little store was right next to the grade school I attended. As kids we would go there at lunch time to buy candy and soda. The store is no more, but the sign still hangs out front.....

    Just finished this new shop. Dad and I are always picking any old oil & gas signs. Seems like no matter what there is still never enough room.

    That looks like a really nice shop ^^^...but I could never have so much glass and that many breakable things in my workspace...it would never last!
