Gee Doc it almost looks like a can of beer. Don't store that in the fridge whatever you do!

Those are really neat. I like the older stuff. I watch American Pickers and Frankie likes oil cans too. Good luck in your collecting.

I can't remember where I saw this but there is a guy who has an old gas station that he has converted into an Oil can museum. The place is full of Oil cans and they are full.

Nice collection, Do they still have oil in them?


Here's my can :D


The Simmons is 1/4 full. And the Farmers Union is still 3/4 full of the mineral oil. Pretty exciting stuff.

Very nice looking collection of cans. The Havoline looks to be a really old one and the colors of the Farmers Union ones are great! Thanks for sharing the picture.

I have an old 2-gallon Penn OTASCO oil can. My father-in-law used to work for OTASCO (Oklahoma Tire And Supply Company) and he gave it to me. I'll get a picture of it.
