Angela: You're welcome. Glad you like it.

Bob: Sorry. I should have mentioned the size. It's 1/25th scale.

Joe: The track was right off the Delsea Drive In Vineland, NJ.
It closed down in '65 but the track itself was still there in an
undeveloped area up until about '85 or so. The last remnants are
slated to go very shortly. Probably going to be more housed
about '85 or so. There was a drag strip in there, too.
Here's a link for some old pix:

I would like to make a few of my files containing vintage advertising available. Since attaching files is not permitted, just download the zip file (shown below) and when you unzip it, you will have 3 files in Microsoft Word format (.doc). You can always resize the graphics by clicking and then dragging a corner (to keep the aspect ratio the same).

I hope you will find these useful, and if there are any duplications in this forum, just realize that I didn't have the time or the desire to go through them all!

I will keep these online as long as there seems to be a demand for them.

Since everyone has been sharing potential sign sources, I thought I'd add my $0.02 worth Everytime I've come across a possible site, I immediately add it to the Sign category in my Favorites. In case you note a slight leaning toward Burma Shave signs, I LOVE 'EM!!

Hope you find some useful

Thanks very much! I particularly liked Paperstuff.com - great looking wall-size graphics. I may just have to invest in some color ink and decal paper to make up some of these for sides of buildings!

This one is a doozy - - -

Dick:
Thanks a lot for taking the time to list out the sign sites - I've allready found two signs to use for my layout!

Great job!

Thanks from me too - I especially liked the site that had the old time fonts for download, just what I was looking for!

I didn't know it was there either Joe! There's lot's of stuff buried in the wood of south jersey, but I do love that sign Ken! Nice job.
