New garage art...

Post by DiggerD on Mon Jul 23, 2012 7:19 pm

Been after this one for a while, it was leaning up against a fence in one of my customers back yard. Went by there today and she said I could have it. cheers Wouldn't fit in my work truck, so I drove back down there this afternoon in the Nissan and got it. Its pretty big, (3' x 6') and really heavy (prob 60 lbs or so), marked Gulf Refining Company, porceline over heavy steel so I am thinking it is pretty early.

How it looked when I got it:



after a soap and water wash:



gonna let it soak in WD40 and then a little buff & wax:

Yeah, me too. I have been doing a little research and the two tone blue lettering dates it to somewhere between 1924 and 1928. It is a lot older than I first thought! Cool
