cool thread... great americana
The Back yard.
subscribing, since I've started designing my new garage. That Texaco station is too cool!
1918, use it for a night light. I have about 15 more but newer ones waitin restoration....that is a list that never ends....
That corner room or whatever it is is awesome! You did a great job with that.
Just some old barn wood ,car tags, and old car parts. Trying to finish it up as my office.
Here's a pair we just finished for my new orthodontic office.
nothing to fancy but heres my wayne in front of my shop,I left the guts in to so its damn near to heavy to carry off or blow over
My old Gilbarco Model 96
A couple of mine in various stages,
Fillings at the Filling Station.. Kool!!!
These were taken last year,,,HRP
i got about 400 pic's of pump's ive restored here is a few.
Mine is a bit different. I was going to restore it to stock, but found very little info on this model. Also needed a computer and found only one guy in the country that had one, and he couldn't really be bothered by my asking about shipping cost. So I just did my own thing to it. Stripes are by Jimmy C. It's a A.O. Smith I believe from the late 50's.
I restored these two, they are in my living room.
The Tokheim has a red plastic translucent top with 4 light bulbs under it... I've been told it's rare... It came down from Seattle to FL in the back seat of a Corvair convertible.
i would agree on it being rare ive never seen one or heard of one for that matter..very cool.
This belongs to an old class mate of mine up in North Arkansas
Hey IrishHills, you win my envy contest. Damn I wish I had that stuff in my back yard. Cool.
I've got two of these. Probably ought to pass them on, I'll never do anything with them.
That has to be the coolest dentist's office ever.
I agree DAMN !!!!
Here is mine.
Cool thread. Not to hijack it but I have a question for all the gas pump collectors out there. These things are HEAVY, do you guys keep the guts in them or just keep the shells? I have a Bennet in the rafters but the pump is down in the woods.
