    When I was growing up the 76 ball was the icon for me and my mom to know where to get gas. Although we now use Arco it is a symbol of all gas signs just like the Mobil, Texaco and Shell signs. They have no right to take down these balls because they are new and dont think that they are modern. The orginal creaters made them that way cause thats the way they wanted them. So thats the way they should be.

    Hi Kim! This is Sean, a friend of Earl's, and I live here in Los Angeles in the Hollywood area. Earl has kept me posted about this website and all your hard work to protect something which he loved so much. Union 76 was Earl's *life*. He looks so freaking happy in that photo! Earl even enlisted me to take pictures of 76 balls and I got some of them taking one down last year, I think he submitted some to this site. Anyway I just wanted to say I know he'd appreciate your kind words and thoughts. I also know that saving the '76 balls was a huge weight off his shoulders when he needed it most. Thank you. Sincerely, Sean McKinley
