I won this on ebay a few weeks ago and got it in the mail today. I should have had it a week ago since I paid for priority shipping so it would have less of a chance at getting damaged but the seller decided to ship it parcel post which takes over a week! :wallbanging:
It still made it safely though... Its 30''x24''

Does anyone know anything about this dealer? I Looked at google maps and it looks like the shop is long gone.

Nice sign, and good articles about the fellow.
Bolens 1000, maybe you could contact the son by the E-mail address and see what stories he can tell you.....Or maybe he is the one you bought the sign from in the 1st place!

You got a great sign, and now a great story to go behind that sign. Very nice piece. Wish I could find a decent sign in my price range!! Enjoy, and show us some pics when you hang it up in your shop.
