Have you seen this one yet?

14 Oct


I’ve come across a new website that I just had to pass along to all of you. I know you’re going to enjoy it. This one is brought to you by a collector from out west and there are some pretty incredible collections featured on the website.

The summer GDN is in the mail!

4 Jul

Just sent off all the summer Garage Door News in the mail today. Watch your mailboxes!

Here’s a picture from one of the articles in this issue. The small picture in the magazine just didn’t do it justice. There’s a lot to look at so I wanted to give you all the chance to see it full size (click on the picture to see full size version). Check out that billboard. How would you like that for the side of your garage?!

As always, this issue is full of great pictures, stories, coming events and much more.

I’m always looking for feedback. Send me a note to let me know what you think of the Garage Door News!

Ad(s) of the Day

23 Aug

You just don’t see ads for types of gas pumps in everyday magazines anymore!

The top ad says “The World’s Most Beautiful Pumps” at the bottom. I think it’s a nice looking ad talking about “Your Friend The Service Station Man. I wish I could read the rest of the ad.

The bottom ad is promoting Wayne pumps’ “Honest Measure”.

I’m always looking for original ads to scan. If anyone has any I could borrow, please get in touch. They will be returned unharmed. I promise!

Picture of the Day

Here’s a neat picture of a Red Indian station.

Note the names on each pump (click on the picture for a larger version). Can you make it out? They’re the names of each of the Dionne quintuplets!
