Besides Cars, Trucks, Boats and RVs, the Mecum Auto Auction and Show in Orlando, Florida had huge halls full of automotive memorabilia.  This one hall had enameled steel signs and neon original gas signs. The HC was one of Sinclair’s early gas brands and stands for “Houston Concentrate”.

Here is a Neon sign saying Sinclair HC Gasoline:

F/5.6, ISO 400, 1/60 sec, 24 mm Lens

F/5.6, ISO 400, 1/60 sec, 24 mm Lens

Below is a similar sign with no neon:
