This Smoke Em vintage tin sign measures approximately 18-inches by 12-inches. Unlike most tin signs, we design and make our signs in the United States using 24 gauge American steel and a process known as sublimation, where the image is baked into a powder coating for a durable and long lasting finish. We then perform a vintaging process by hand to give this sign an aged look and feel. This sign is drilled and riveted for easy hanging.   Look at the here....

We are very pleased to have the great folks from Nu Relics Power Windows onboard with us.  Earl Cornelius has built Street Rods for over 40 years. During these years, he wanted power windows that were easy to install and worked properly - keeping the window level and straight as it went up and down. As a result, he developed a set of power windows for his 1940 Ford using the original manual regulator as the base for the power window. It was not long before his friends wanted these wonderful power windows for their cars too. Thus the establishment of Nu-Relics.   They now have over 300 models !
