Default Spare Tire Mounted Turn Signals?

Recently there was a picture of an antique turn signal mounted to the rear spare tire. It was purchased at Hershey years ago by the person that posted the picture. The signals were arrows in a long thin metal housing. I thought the picture was in my LICENSE TOPPERS thread, but I can't find it. I'd like to see the picture again if anyone knows where it is. Thanks

How about this thread on the "Teleoptic" signals?

Thanks, but that thread didn't have any pictures and was from 2 years ago. The turn signal was pictured just a couple weeks ago. I just can't remember which thread had it.

Tom, It was pretty close to four weeks ago, as you also made reference to them in this thread: LINK I remember the picture, I'm searching too, no luck, and it's driving me nuts.

Something strange is going on. I just went to your link and in reply #5 I mention the first picture in reply #35 but have no link.

I must be loosing it. I thought it was on the rear spare, and one long housing, but it's on the front headlamp bar, and in two housings.

See the first picture in reply #35

That's a nice old Dodge Power Wagon, one of my favorites. I suppose a Diamond T would be my favorite.

The price for the arrow signals was very reasonable too.
