We do not believe in restoring damage such as dings, dents, scratches, or damage to porcelain enamel. Restoring damage to vintage porcelain signs is frowned upon in the collector community because there is simply no way to repair this type of damage that is consistent with the standards of a museum quality restoration. Most often attempts at this type of restoration leaves the item looking worse than its original condition. Furthermore, it is our belief that every ding, dent, and blemish is part of that item's unique history, and helps to tell its story. The only exception to this is when dealing with neon and electrical components.

That is why this vintage Greyhound neon sign has received a 101 point, world class fine art and museum quality, neon and electrical restoration. This means that all electrical components have been replaced, including any wiring, mounts, switches, and ALL SOLID STATE TRANSFORMERS. The neon tubes are hand blown, and hand bent by our in-house master glass blowers using historically correct techniques. This restoration is completed according to the specifications, and under the supervision of, award winning artist H.J. Nick. An item does not receive his brass tag signature certification until it has been found to meet all world class fine art qualifications. This certification means each item bearing his signature is backed by over 100 years of manufacturing world class fine art handmade furnishings, and restoring America's finest collectibles to original, museum quality condition. Also, any electrical parts including wiring and solid state transformers and flashers have been replaced.

On The Road With H.J. Nick

When I was traveling from Southern, Illinois to go to Junior College in Southern California. I would ride on this exact Greyhound Bus, with the now iconic reflective painted running Greyhound Signs on both sides of the bus, back in 1965. It was a 36 hour journey, in this 1940's or 50's bus only stopping for bathroom breaks and snacks. With my cigarettes rolled in the sleeve of my pristine white T-shirt, and a Zippo Lighter rolled up cuffs on my Levi jeans, I’d be sitting or sleeping on the rear back seat along maybe two dollars in my pocket and all of my worldly belongings that fit in my apple box luggage In my pursuit of the American Dream.

Greyhound Lines History: The Early Years

Carl Eric Wickman was born in Sweden in 1887. In 1905, he moved to the United States where he worked as a drill operator at a mine in Alice, Minnesota, until he was laid off in 1914. That same year, he became a Hupmobile salesman in Hibbing, Minnesota. Although unsuccessful as a car salesman, Wickman used a seven-passenger car to begin a bus service with Andy "Bus Andy" Anderson and C.A.A. "Arvid" Heed in 1914. The fledgling company transported iron ore miners from Hibbing to Alice at 15 cents a ride.

In 1915, Wickman joined forces with Ralph Bogan, who was running a similar service from Hibbing to Duluth, Minnesota, to form the Mesaba Transportation Company. The company made $8,000 in profit in its first year.

By the end of World War I in 1918, Wickman owned 18 buses and was making an annual profit of $40,000. In 1922, Wickman joined forces with Orville Caesar, the owner of Superior White Bus Lines.

The Greyhound name had its origins in the inaugural run of a route from Superior, Wisconsin to Wausau, Wisconsin. While passing through a small town, Ed Stone, the route's operator, saw the reflection of his 1920s era bus in a store window. The reflection reminded him of a greyhound dog, and he adopted that name for that segment of the Blue Goose Lines. The Greyhound name became popular across the bus network but only later gave its name to Greyhound Corporation. Stone later became General Sales Manager of Yellow Truck and Coach, a division of General Motors (GM), which built Greyhound buses.
