I'm going to start transitioning from ig to here.  So tired of that format, but for those that want to see more of my collection find me @theoldhabits    

Not a collector by any means, but I picked this up a little while back from an estate sale. Any idea where I could get more info about it? The back shows an address in Springfield, MA.    

I took this pick July 2001 and a little over a month later I posted it on here.   The first pic, hard to think that was 18years ago...

Maaaaaaaaan!!!

 

1937?!?!?!?

 

I thought spraycans were first commercialized in 1946 by Plastikote?

 

That is correct... The can does say copyright 1937 BUT you can clearly see the picture of the car on the side of the can is a 50's style car and there is NO WAY they would have a car that looked like that on a spray paint can in 1937 because cause looked totally different in 37. My guess is that 1937 is when the company was born not when this can was produced!!!!

its called shill bidding, sometime people do this to ''up'' a auction so someone that REALLY wants that item will pay more or if your worried you might loose it for less than you wanted it to go for.

 

so when your bidding on a item or having a bidding war you might just be bidding against that dudes freind and if he wins he dosent pay for it and it ussly winds back up on ebay

this always happens in auction houses, a few people will go in and not look like they are together and place bids on a item, someone that sees alot of people fighting for this item will sometimes think it is worth more than they think, and they end up bidding over bored becuase of ''shill'' bidding or a fake hype.

 

and when you got stuipd rich people buying stuff just to brag they own it, they are deff gunna want something that they see others wanting, just so they can say. ''i own this''

 

but in reality they own a over priced paid for item, sometimes even junk or a fake

wisetuxedo-

 

i dont have any info on that can, but for a dollar its a good buy/find

 

engine / car paint came in a million different brands some being more popular and known than others.

 

their isnt that much of a huge market for them but they are awesome to collect because just like yours the lables are always wacky and weird

GM Green. Engine enamel is usually pretty thick, and that is a pretty dope color, don't think its that old, a good user if you ask me.

 

 

As for the auctions, why are paint collectors the only people that seem to get caught up in bidding wars? Wait till the auctions end. I sell a ton of items on the bay, and you would be suprised how a quality item can up itself several hundred dollars in the last couple seconds. I don't have time wasting on bidding wars, I plan on going after some of those cans, but you will never know till its over.
