Rare UTOCO Find

UTOCO came from the first Utah Oil Refining Company that was formed in 1908. It was originally called The Utah Oil Refining Company and then changed after Standard purchased over 50% of the Stocks to UTOCO and used the typical Standard Logo which they kept for their many name changes of UTOCO, American, Standard, Pan Am, and Amoco. Unlike other Gas/Oil Companies they re used the same sign rings with each of the changing signs. Very convenient for Collectors like us as it is a pain with all the other Companies who changed frames all the time as well as signs. Hooray for universal sign sizes!

Supertest Gasoline

It's not a perfect picture but it's better than the other one we recently posted. The multiple colors on the Maple Leaf make this a beautiful sign and I don't recall ever seeing another one on a Shepard's Pole. The condition isn't great but up on the pole it look awesome to me.
It's posted right by the entrance on the new Parking Annex at Lakeside Storage and is one of 3 different styles of Supertest Signs in the collection

1920s Two Ton Cat Crawler

This very early Caterpiller Crawler came up at an Auction and I couldn't refuse buying it since it reminded me of a similar tractor/crawler I plowed Cherry orchards with in Montana as a teenager. The Two Ton was the first tractor built by Caterpiller. I think it fits perfectly in the Sign Collection at Lakeside Storage mixed in with the other tractors, porcelain Signs and Antique cars. If it's old I like it!
