Sam Baker, 65, is a retired Chemical Plant Mechanic. He's keenly interested in Ford signs, literature (e.g., parts catalogs, brochures, etc.), early Ford V-8s, and Flathead V-8 speed equipment. He shared a few items from his collection, along with a few recollections about his life as a Ford man.
Sam says, "In 1975, I was working on a 1928 Model A Coupe, and went to the Carisle, PA, Fall Show. It was there that I discovered Ford Signs. I could only afford one, but I saw many that I liked."
One of Sam's favorite signs is a 6" Ford stained glass window from a 1928 Ford Dealership. He also like his 8" Ford V-8 porcelian sign. When it come to signs, Sam's advice is "Buy what you like and buy it in person or from someone you know."
