Dad and I picked up a real nice double sided sign from an old dealer back in December......we finally had the time to rewire it and hang it in the barn last night. With our big show coming up next Saturday, we figured we better get it done.

Also Mom and I suprised dad on his birthday here recently with a nice neon sign. The crappy cell phone photo doesn't do it justice but gives you an idea.

There is a shop down the road that still has the sign like the top picture hanging outside. She refuses to sell it. That bottom sign is awesome. Is it a reproduction? Or actual dealer sign?

It is actually a reproduction. A friend of a friend type of deal......He had one done and I was able to see it displayed in his shop one day. After I laid eyes on it I was hooked and asked him where he got it. One thing lead to another and Mom and I chipped in together to be able to buy one for dad's 66th birthday. He was pretty suprised to say the least.

This is an original newspaper ad for WH, circa '63 or '64. Maybe you can hang it on your wall.

The sign I've had for years is just getting too common in other peoples barns!!! :poke:

Seriously, great looking signs. I've only had mine for 10 or 15 years, maybe one of these days I'll put a light behind it. :rofl2:
