Here I say "paraphernalia" all the time, and I have to look up how to spell it.  I don't think I've ever seen that word in print, come to think of it.  :rolling:




There are seem neat old advertising pieces for antique engines on eBay right now.   I don't know if anyone else likes these sort of things or not.  Some are overpriced and some I want and just don't want to spend the money that direction. 


This is a Clinton Machine co (father of Clinton engines) ash tray.  I didn't know they made such a beast.




I have never seen a Power Products engines dealer sign.  I hesitate to share this one, I might buy it... but I don't know if I want to spend the money that way right now.




This is the newer Wisconsin engines dealer sign.  I want the old style with the "More HP Hours" logo on it, but this is still interesting.




Registered Briggs and Stratton service dealer plaque.  This is the old style.  I like the way it looks.




And the dealer sign from the late 50's,

I always run into the same problem, Lots of neat things I'd like to have but dont have the $$ to buy them and everything seems to come up for sale all at once!

I guess its a good thing though as I dont think I'd be able to walk through the Garage/House if I bought everything I "Would like to have " :D


I think the Briggs and Wisconsin sign's are a bit overpriced if you ask me.
