I understand the frustration. If it comes down to it and you have the time/willingness to do it. You could start stripping some of the fixtures down to component level and apart selling the bits individually. That may increase interest. Especially since the price for shipping a ballast or a light socket is far better.

I'd come pick it up because I have this exact street light with no lens... but I refuse to drive the truck that far (gas prices). and I don't know if the moped would be happy with me running it 4 hours up there and back lmaooo. I'm almost tempted to try.. longest journey I've done on it was about 180 miles round trip (i've done this journey tons of times). This trip would be about 420 round trip (haha 420).

Best thing to do at this point is getting a ballast.  But lamp sockets and starter blocks are really hard to find now.?   But you can push on connector to lamp pins to run them lamps.   

 Best thing is lot of Patient and searching.  There still lamps to be found tucked in corner of old industrail buildings and basment


 I got my T17 lamps in person in midland texas though Ebay sales
And all day drive and 1 hour to browse around ebay seller stuff
  Then i went calfornia found some T17 lamps in restore . 

  GE was last manufacture to make T17 lamps
They dried up so quickly that they gave no T17
User no warning to stock up on lamps.  It ended
Production in 2012. The PG T17 tubes got replace with
VHO T12s

I don't think I've ever seen a Home Depot with MV parking lot lights.

There's one here that has these nifty looking 1980s HPS drop lens shoeboxes though:

There's also another interesting one built into a mall:

It's the only Home Depot I know with a drop ceiling and troffers instead of the usual lighting and high ceiling.

This one used 1000w MH GE HMAA highmasts, unfortunately has been LEDized now:

Most here use these round white HPS shoeboxes:

Home Depot first started in 1978 so it was around the time when I believe HPS was coming around. and i agree, the orange theme suits HD and it could maybe be intentional they are keeping these lamps to match the theme.

A little bit, but I have other interests that I've been ridiculed for far worse. I don't really tell anyone about them because of this.

Clap on, Clap off

They still sell the clapper too, although I wonder if they're LED compatible... :wndr:

I have a lot of “weird” hobbies, and lighting is probably the one i get ridiculed the least for. Is someone is gonna attack me for my hobbies they have much better choices.
