51 minutes 59 seconds ago A very good garage sale by Neil Gerrard

Don't go to sales much anymore but something struck me about this one, went a few weeks ago and bought a little bit of stuff. Talked to the gal for a long time and she said she may call me when she decided what to sell out of her brothers stuff. Got a call on Monday and bought this small load.

Today at 08:05 PM Pricer box parts by Rabbitman

I'm getting dangerously close to finishing my Bennett 76 and would like to mount my price box on it. I need the strap bracket that connects it to the stub mount on the top. I think I could probably just make one if I had a good picture of one in use as I think they are just made out of flat stock, right? If anybody has an extra they would part with or picture of one? Also, I would like to find a couple of original prices cards in decent shape to put in the box. I have several sets of the M&S cards but they wont fit this box properly. Be happy to trade some of those if you could use them. Here's a pic of what I got....Thanks!

Today at 05:51 PM DB's Quotes ? by oltoydoc@vintagegas.com

I had mentioned to a friend a while back that at one time I was keeping a list of quotes that DB made that struck me as being funny. He told me that I should post them on oldgas some time. I guess today is as good as any to do that. However, for the life of me, as I read them now, I'm really not sure what I saw in them that I thought was so funny? lol (maybe if some of the older members can remember what was going on when these were quoted? they can fill it in for the youngsters?)

Dick Bennett quotes:

1. He who doesn't make a mistake, never did anything.

2. "The process of turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones can at times require the use of a large sledgehammer."

3. If you can learn from your mistakes, you will not make them again !

4. Saddle sores won't show on your face after riding a horse all day, either !

5. You have too many toys, and not enough batteries !

6. Anyone can pull a tooth, but most will Choose to Pay a Dentist!

7. Most shops can paint a Hot Rod, very few can build it.

8. IF it was something you were really interested in, you'd be emailing seller for better pic's instead of complaining here about lousy pictures.

9. Dick Bennett Quote 27 July ‘10

When asked for the difference between a Tokheim 950/850
Dick’s answer:

..- 850
.= 100

10. Re: (dating repro vulture items)Dates, Depends on WHO makes it & WHAT it is !

11. Re: Pan-am sign found 1/14/2011: Only took 4 pages to get that PICTURE POSTED! Good thing ya didn't ask for the whole sign.

12. I think he likes keeping us in suspension!
Sure Hope we get another picture on Monday.

13. When responding to “how old are you”? Older than Grass, younger than Dirt!

14. "If it/you were closer, I'd buy it"

15. POST them Tom, YOU won't receive .0001% of the FLACK I did/do for making use of pump parts. Bet they will even wait for the cow paddies to dry before slinging your way!

16. Even a Blind squirrel gets lucky finding food or he Dies.

17. Bet you guys believe EVERYTHING the A-TEAM did too.
& The DUKES OF HAZARD only used 1 car for ALL the stunts!

Thought Fl. was on the Confederate side during the Civil War! What do they teach in schools there?

19.HOPE ya Have FULL DEEP Pockets, when ya start adv. for an Original Globe!

20.Won't be long before you'll be able to get one from Argentina or India!

21. LOL
Just because you replaced the fender on your Mustang w/ one from a SHELBY doesn't change a thing, you still have a FORD, not a SHELBY.

By installing a Clock KIT in a 36B, it's still a 36B. NOT A 36B-DP

22. There is a time limit [or I would be editing more of my replies just cause!].

23. Nuts, bolts, washers, pipe, fittings, screws, nails, billet, building beams, engine blocks, computer frames, etc.

When was the last time ya bought a kids toy made w/ steel/metal?

24. I tried NON PETRO buy of the year one time & @$&*(* hit the fan. Had Babies & old men crying FOUL!
I'm still ROTF,LMAO

25. Aug.‘12 -Imagine what the Ancient Egyptians would say about us wanting to Mummify these pumps w/ the Guts intact? LOL
They did save the Guts AFTER they removed from body!

26. No one was born Potty Trained,
No one learned to walk w/ 1st step,
Ride a bike w/o training wheels,
Starting a family [unless you were very lucky/UN-lucky!]

BUT ya kept TRYING & WA-LA,
No more Diapers,
Ya quit falling on your Butt,
Now you can ride a Harley,
Some started a family & others decided Not to!

Some are "challenged", & not just computers!
Some take the easy way out "I CAN'T DO IT" because I GAVE UP.

27. Display the can behind the beer in frig. As the beer disappears the can will start to look better.

28. INTEGRITY of some Members!
Gotta like it, #$%&* lol

29, Don't hold your breath, I'm sure they made more Studebaker's than pumps & ya don't see that many of them!

Today at 05:17 PM A buddy for my lonely Harbor lubester by oltoydoc@vintagegas.com

Funny how things work out, but several years ago at Fred's Santa Rosa meet, I saw a great original West Coast Branded Harbor lubester. Well of course I was too late, it had already been sold. I believe that Mike Mikelson had bought it. Sometime later, I was over at Dennis Leith's house, and saw the same lubester in his collection, I don't remember how he came to own it, but I certainly hadn't forgotten it. A year or so ago, I noticed a post on oldgas, where Dennis was selling off a few items, and low and behold, the Harbor lubester was being offered for sale. Obviously I bought it, had a buddy bring it to oregon, where it sat in the corner of my office, until recently, when good fortune struck again. On a whim, I answered another post on oldgas, where Kim (Minute Man) was looking for a trade. He wanted some quality globes, and was willing to trade his Erie 50 pump. I offered to be a middle man, exchanging cash for anyone that might not want the pump, but had globes. It did work out for everyone, and now my Harbor lubester, sits next to his new buddy an Erie 50 branded in the Harbor theme. Thanks to T-Way for helping me design some decals to fit between those great "art deco" corners. As you can see, I have a lot of people to thank for making this dream come true. Thanks to All !

Today at 04:59 PM Used Erie Brass Tag "Etched" not painted by oltoydoc@vintagegas.com

I need an Erie brass ID tag 3"x 2-1/2" they are being repro'd and I bought one thinking it was like the original, but when I got it, I found out the new one had the logo/info painted on, not etched like the originals. So, if someone can help me out with on older one I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
