I'll add more photos as I take them. My garage needs lots of reorganization, especially with the random signage that I've picked up over the years.

 

My question now is regarding this Warner windshield washer bottle.  It stands about 2 feet tall.  I have no spout or lid for it and don't know what the lid/spout is supposed to look like.   anyone ever seen one of these?

I don't know why the software rotated the image...I rotated it myself and it still posted the same way!

 

 

 

Here are a few more shots from the past year or 2.

Benefits of AACA Membership.

I took a few photos today. There are 4 3 door cabinets hanging on the wall. The only way I know where to find anything is by the sign on the door.

I have also been picking up emblems when I can get them dirt cheap, seen in the photo below.

 

Also shown are a Gates hose display and a Delco shock display topper, then some of the wall signs.

 

I haven't hung it up yet, but there is also photo of a few signs I made myself. I gave one away at our chapter xmas party.  I plan to put a few more on eBay and see how they do.

Awesome, the Invicta and Wildcat look great next to each other, nice and "snug". So where is SnowWhite and the others.  Like those cabinets and all the emblems. I had considered putting some on a couple of my tool boxes. How are they stuck on?

The corrugated tin BUICK signs are cool. Care to tell how you made them.

and what's the story on the Gulf gas pump, not a commercial pump I take it, no $$. Did you restore it?

The "Gulf" pump is now a "Clark" pump!  It is an old farm pump from what I understand. I can supply the make and model if anyone is interested. I bought it as you see it. It is securely bolted through the house.  :)

 

Any of the emblems with pins are installed through drilled holes in the doors, with the speed nuts on the back. Newer emblems are attached with 3m tape.

 

I have previously posted my tool cabinets, where the manufacturer's nameplate has been replaced with a '70's era BUICK emblem. I'll try to remember to snap another photo of those.

 

The corrugated Buick signs are fairly simple. I bought the letters at a local craft store, drilled through and tacked them in place. I'm currently searching for just the right reclaimed wood to make more, although the stained pressure treated wood has the best grip on the tacks.

 

I have a separate storage garage that houses a rotation of the cars, depending on season.  Snow White is actually under the care of http://antiqueautomotiveservice.com/, in preparation for sale.  She had a few bugs that needed worked out first.

An updated pic of the gas pump, a Gilbarco.   Also, a pic of the "Buick" emblems on my tool boxes.

 

And just for good measure, 1 of the shelves in my office.
