  1. This 1970’s GM Dealer Service Department Mr. Goodwrench Technician Skill Sign Kit is still in its original box. This is a kit with enough material to create FIVE different, personalized metal signs, each promoting the training and skills of five different technicians in the GM dealer’s service department. Vinyl decal sheet is included to personalize with any GM brand you want. Each of the five “blank” metal signs measures 24” by 30”. (please disregard the glare on the metal sign photos). These signs are designed to be customized with a tech’s name, the GM brand they work on, and the specialized training they have received in various repair areas. The kit includes the five metal signs, and a LARGE supply of self-adhesive vinyl decals to personalize a sign for the tech. The first photographs of the sign kit’s box exterior will give you an idea of the decals included to create each tech’s personalized sign. I didn't photograph the many vinyl decals, but all should be inside, since the kit was sealed when I purchased it. Two of the other photos show the mostly blank, brushed metal sign that will be customized for the technician. The price for the complete sign kit (enough material to produce FIVE customized signs) is $175. This works out to $35 per sign, which hopefully represents a very good value. I figured a guy could make up one of these signs for himself, using the GM brand he preferred. Then, he could surprise four old car buddies by doing a sign for each of them. Or, a guy could sell the remaining four signs, customized for the buyers. Again, the price for the entire, original GM dealership service department sign kit is $175, plus the shipping. IF it's hard to figure out how this kit gets used, or the signs it will create, please PM me. I'll call you, and we can go over everything. Thanks for looking. John

  4. Hi, John F.. Have left a couple of phone messages for you. Thought I'd also reply here, since I haven't heard back from you. Yes, I still have one of these NOS 1979-85 Riviera hood ornaments available. Contact me, if you're interested. Thanks. John

  6. This quality, framed TEXACO country gas station water color print is ready to enjoy. This is a limited edition (one of 500) print by nationally-known watercolor artist, Jack Schmitt. It measures 18-3/4" wide by 15-1/2" high. This print has been individually signed by the artist. The limited edition of this TEXACO country gas station print sold out about 35 years ago. I bought it back in the day, and then had it professionally framed with solid oak and double matting. The glass is non-glare and UV ray blocking. At the time, I believe I spent about $75 for the frame work alone. This Jack Schmitt TEXACO gas station framed print is in excellent condition. It would look good in a guy's office or man cave, or for use as a unique gift. The price for this quality piece of gas/oil artwork is $80, plus the shipping.

  14. This early DELCO Battery Sign is a gem, with great color and neat graphics. It's an original, of course. It dates to the 1940's. Six volt DELCO battery shown. Painted tin, single-sided. Highly embossed. Excellent condition and color.19-3/4” wide by 13-3/4” high. This sign appears never to have been outside. The only issue is that the sign has small trims taken out of all four corners. I purchased this sign right off the wall from the now long-closed Polonia, Wisconsin Chevrolet Garage many years ago. They had it mounted on a display rack, and had trimmed the sign to fit an exact space on the rack. Without the trims, and in the same very good condition, this is a $1,000 to $1,200 sign (recent auction results). I have mine priced at $490, plus the shipping.
