Talking Check out this old dirty, greasy oil can...

I found at the local flea market this morning. You couldn't make out the raised lettering, but I knew what it was. $3 later it was in my possession. Sure cleaned up nice. "LOOK" at that International Harvester raised lettering, and it's not rusted out. How could it with all that grease and oil on it .

I had the same experience with the one on the left at a yard sale. It was completely covered with dirt and oil. Kept it nice!

Several Years ago i was working on a commercial in Hillsboro, Ohio. When we got done One of the Antique store owners let us shop and gave us a special 40% discount on anything we wanted. I found and purchaced an oil can like the ones shown only it had the rasied letters "JOHN DEERE" on it.
