Sinclair, 212

Love this Sinclair logo... How braZZEn to use an actual dinosaur on a logo used for fossil fuels! Sometimes the obvious is the way to go. Easily one of my favorite gas logos, next to the pegasus used by Mobil. There is a great story there I am sure. I am sure there has got to be one behind this dinosaur as well!

  1. I love this sort of melty effect you use.

    I remember Sinclair well... we had an old staion two blocks from where I grew up off Route 66. I used to ride my bike past it daily. Decades later, when I met my mate, how could I not fall in love with someone who had an actual 3 foot long vinyl blow-up dinosaur of the same company suspended from the bedroom ceiling? (and yes we still have it, perched over the vinyl record collection.. kind of fitting, if you think about it.)
