In the 1920′s Fuels were colored different colors to indicate the grade of the Gasoline, and avoid the danger of using wrong fuels for cleaning. The colored fuel actually allowed, yet another method of branding for customers loyalty to oil companies. Glass bowls were affixed to the top and Lit up, for advertising. The measuring method was the “Clock Face” scale that weighed the liquid. Similarly, we feature a beautifully crafted Antique Gas Pump, with the Quartz Clock Face, Chrome accents, rubber hose and cast metal handle, all steel body wrapped in a high-luster Powder Coat finish. This stunning Gas Pump when lit up, will make a wonderful attraction in any Recreation Room, Racing Shop, Restaurant or Office; and revive Nostalgia.

I can remember traveling Old Hgwy. 395 in the 60′s up to the High Sierras in the summer-time. Being on the Open Road was exhilerating, knowing we were on our way to the Mountain Streams and the adventure of Camping in new sites, and the prospect of seeing the Wild Animals. However, the triple digit weather was a bit unbearable as we traveled. We would always make a Pit Stop at a Union 76 station and enjoy a Delicious Refreshing Coca Cola from the OLe Antique Coke Machines. Similarily, we offer a Coca Cola Refrigerated Machine, with embossing on all sides and under Lid, as the original. With licensed Coca Cola logo, it has additionally, “Ice Cold” embossed on the front and back. It’s brilliant Red color and White embossing make it attractive in any Recreation room, Patio or Office. Back in the day with triple digit weather, it was as if you could’nt find the Bottle Opener and Cap Catcher fast enough, part of it’s original design for enjoying a Delicious Refreshing Coca Cola.
In the midst of Hurricane “Irene”, many folks probably first think of the volumes of water that causes havoc, and the High-Wind-velocities that rip and displace causing millions of dollars of damage to Homes and Businesses.

What image do you see, when asked what was the Vintage Car Era? There is little debate in the time period 1919 thru 1930. Charming cars that exuded a Class, Uniqueness, a Rarity, and detailed Quality- that earned the name Vintage Car. Certainly, that image is one of large head-lights, seemingly over-size tires, running boards, fluted fenders, Chrome appointments usually included windshield, grille, bumpers and hub-caps.

When you think of a Jalopy Car, you may think of an ole Clunker or Beater, not a well kept Antique Car, and mostly rundown. Or sometimes referred to as the “Old Banger”, a poorly maintained vehicle. Early Hot Rodders would often purchase Jalopies as a basis for Racers or early Stock Car Racing. However our charming Jalopy Pedal Cars, are not really a Clunker- but rather a beautifully crafted Antique Pedal Car, wrapped in a high-luster Powder Coat finish. Featuring – adjustable pedal assembly, ball-bearing wheel drive, high-traction tires, Chrome- windshield, steering wheel, head lights and grille.

Time is highly valued and cherished by all rational people, an indefinite rhythm set in motion for an unlimited duration, set in motion ever since the Beginning of Time, for all time, done so by our Maker. A seemingly renewable energy every day from the Source of all things. Time was set in motion, like a Pendulum swinging for all-time in a seven-day cycle; as the months and seasons come and go at precisely the same time each year, the animals give their offspring at the same time each spring, and the Buds bear their fruit. Saturday remains the Seventh-day, as Time changes not, just as the Universal principles laid down- change not. So it is, our stunning Neon Coca Cola Clocks change not also, remaining just as striking, attractive and Timeless as the day before. Featuring – two Neon rings, bright white neon, Coca Cola graphic, vibrant red-rings, chrome molded clock case, high grade Glass cover and accurate Quartz clock movement. Surely – these Gems will be a brilliant addition in any Kitchen, Den or Office, and remain valid and true to Time.
The Boeing P- 26 A was the first all-metal monoplane fighter – “Pursuit Plane”, produced in quantity for the U.S.Army Corps; and the last Army Air Corps pursuit aircraft accepted with an open cockpit. It was nicknamed the “Peashooter” by its Pilots, becoming the Air Corps front-line fighter; due to it’s faster in level flight than previous fighters, the Pursuit’s relatively high landing speed resulted in the introduction of landing flaps to reduce this speed.
Hallmarks of a Fighter are its small size, speed and maneuverability, primarily used to gain Air Superiority over the opponent. So it is with our beautifully crafted “Pursuit” Pedal Plane that had all the characteristics of the Peashooter. Featuring – high traction rubber tires, non-slip pedals, padded and snapped seat, rotating propeller, safety tested, all-metal body wrapped in high luster Powder Coat finish and custom graphics. Surely your ‘Lil’ Pilot will soar to heights of a Top Gun, and have the thrill of his or her life.
I can remember going to the Winchester House in the 60′s. The home for the Heir to the Winchester Rifle fortune. She believed in communicating with Spirits and thus believed she always needed to hear the sounds of hammers, saws and drills, giving reason why her Mansion eventually grew to 7 stories high before the San Francisco earthquake. More interesting were the imported Marble Lavatories, ornate Fireplace Facades, and Ceramic tiles. Even more noteworthy was her desire to collect exquisite leaded stained glass windows and lamps. Which remind me of our beautifully crafted Stained Glass Tiffany Lamp, a licensed Coca Cola Lamp. She Particularly loved the Spider-Web design. Featured here – a 16″ Stained Tiffany Lamp, with zinc channel, pull chain, 3′ of hanging chain, and Coca Cola logo; Surely a feminine touch, will set the ambiance in your Den, Restaurant or Ice Cream Parlor, and revive the days of Nostalgia.
