The owner picked up the HCS cap yesterday, and is dropping in the next one to paint today.

Golden Fleece was an Australian gas ccompany, that was started by H C Sleigh, in 1916, and finished in 1981.
Here's some great info and pics.

Here's the next one.
Texaco, and it's an old one.
We think the weird hole is a casting floor.
It'll be red with white lettering.

Thanks guys.
The next one will be an Ampol one.
Here's an idea of how it will look.

I've had a busy week with visitors from outer town.
Managed to get the Ampole cap done.

Update in next few days.

It is so cool that there are so many different designs. I'm always surprised at how many really interesting auto related collectables are still out there to be found.

Not many collect these things, but if you want to, you need to have some spare change.
I know of one that cost my sparky $500 kiwi!
If you look em up on the interweb, there's not much about em.
In fact, I've possibly posted more about em, than anyone person.
