  6. I am pretty heavily invested in Signage for automobile, gas & oil, marine & auto lubricants and other. I have purchased signage throughout the US & CDN. Like a vehicle (VIN) most signs have a "marque" or "mark" or "TM" or "R" with the date of manufacture. There were a lot of manufacturers for Auto signage and gas & oil. In CDN there were a few big time manufactures such as "P&M" ( Porcelain & Metal Products Ltd ") in Ontario and they did Coke, Texaco and the big 3 Auto Cos. and several other brands. There were several on the West Coast as well and some of these signs varied in sign dimensions. The best signs are porcelain and the best condition is a survivor in the best condition you can find with or without chips. Auto porcelain signs came in straight porcelain or the same sign with neon which I have several of. Sometimes the size of the sign causes confusion with authenticity but it sometimes the manufacturer preference and which side of the 49th it was produced. A common porcelain Texaco sign was 6' in the US and the exact same sign was 5' in CDN. The biggest fake sign source today is out of India and I must say they make a pretty good reproduction and I steer clear of those. Painted signs are tough to find in good shape and valuable if real. Cardboard are elusive as well but are very valuable if you can find a real one. So the way to find a Real sign from a fake sign is check the mark and date and then do the big internet search to find one in a collection or one that has been sold. Knowing the manufacturer and the location is good because you can in most cases source info from the local archives and libraries and even in some cases find brochures and order forms for the signs and other dealer advertising. Sometimes signs in volume turn up on the internet and it just speaks fake. But you never know. A few years ago I bought a 7' acrylic light up Pacific 66 sign and the guy threw in a box of other stuff. One package turned out to be 25 pieces of "Firestone" tire inserts which were still wrapped in the brown paper packing tissue. They are porcelain and one side white and one side red. A couple of years ago I visited friends in Nashville to pickup some DB KC parts and ended up with a good inventory of Chrysler / Dodge / Plymouth / DB signage. I think signs will always have an attraction for car guys for Automobile marks or gas & oil as it all relates to our Auto passion and hobby. I also think that the values will stay static and in most cases and my experience increase so it can be a good investment. I am not much of a seller at this point and pretty well just a collector. I have been offered though some attractive prices for some signs. There have been signs and auto and gas and oil related advertising sold on Barrett Jackson that are staggering. So if the sign represents your car or the gas station you went to as a kid it just feels good to have it on the wall. At any rate that is my opinion.............
  7. Dodge "Job Rated" Trucks Wall Banner for 1951 (Satin Rayon 40" x 54") Porcelain Dodge Trucks Sign - double sided plain and single side neon. (circa 1942) Dodge Dealer Handout - Note book. ( circa 1942)
  8. In my honest opinion this is the typical Nigerian scam letter. "Please help me I am inheriting 3 billion US dollars and I will give you half if I can put it in your bank account". "Send me all your banking information I will transfer the funds". Geez delete this jackson 3404 from the system. If I am wrong I will eat crow.... But hey anything is possible. This post stinks....
  9. The back 1/4 windows were an add on at some point. You cant see it in these photos but at some point a past owner was a radio tech / repair guy and it had Marconi nicely painted on the side. It had a long life as a tradesman's panel and work truck. The only stock side windows on these were incorporated on the carryall suburban's with two roll up windows each side with two rows of seats. My suburban also has barn doors which is really rare as the war effort produced 99.9% with the clamshell door in back.
  10. Yes the M22 does have that infamous whine and just adds to the sound going through the gears off the line or just cruising the boulevard in second and giving it a bit of punch to watch that cowl induction flap go up an down.
  11. Thanks Mark..! That particular photo was take at the Abbotsford International Airport on the wall of a bar that used to be called the Red Baron. Unfortunately the new owners in their lack of wisdom or not having any sense of nostalgia painted the whole wall over one color. I had used that as a backdrop for several cars over the years and it just added a great nostalgic touch. I agree on all your comments as well. If it is a clone it should be stated as that. Otherwise I wouldn't trust any statements of Numbers matching and so on and specifically a GM muscle car. GM Canada did a good job of documenting all GM cars coming from Detroit over the border muscle or plain Jane. I have received information and history on cars and trucks going back to 1935. The only other group that comes close to providing this type of factory info was the Chrysler Museum which now that service has stopped. Hopefully George at GM Canada carries on and I think he has trained his protégé to grab the reins soon. The only other entity I would trust to document an LS6 far would be Rick Nelson from www.musclecarrestorationanddesign.com Rick is a real decent guy and an expert and honest as the day is long. I am on the search for a CDN GM doc 70 SS LS6 coupe Cranberry Red Tan interior like the one in the original brochure........gotta keep the dream alive to keep the dreamer alive. Take care keep safe............
