And a plastic window sign that shows the different area by number. Sorry it is fuzzy, it is actually two signs together. More than what you were looking for...but, thought you might be interested.

I have a set of the Fire Chief and Sky Chief. They had sticky tape on the bottom and they were set on the pump. This was during the time when they had a program for blending their gas for the local area. These would have gone on pumps without globes. Note, your sign has the localized number for the area and my Fire chief signs do not. I only have ones with the number on the Sky Chief signs.

Cool pic, Las. We have lots of dragonflies around our lake. Some have colorful wings. Rather have them than the biting bugs.

Supposed to have lower humidity in the middle of this week around here. That's always welcome news.

Have a great Tuesday out there in Oldgasland

I have never heard of porcelain chalking, but it frequently happens to paint. I had a painted goodyear sign that chalked. I cleaned with soap and water until my sponge showed no sign of chalk, then cleaned with a degreaser and followed that with a clear coat.

After four or five years of day-dreaming and talking about building a backyard gas station to house all the petroliana that I have accumulated over some fifty years, I realized that I had better get down to business since I am not getting any younger! I have a 40x60 building in which I currently store most of it along with a few old cars. My first thought was to erect two non load bearing walls in one corner of my building and have an indoor gas station in the 15x15 area that I use for an office.

Then I realized that an outdoor gas station would free up enough space in my 40x60 that I could possibly actually work on a car and move around a lot more easily. Not only that, I already had a cement slab nearby that once supported a one car garage that we tore down when we first purchased the property. I bit the bullet earlier this month and purchased a pre-built "cabin" that I really liked. It is 14x24, 4' of which is a covered porch on the front end. So, my plan is to finish off the inside and then transfer most of what is in my 15x15 office into what is a 14x20 space.

I was so excited when the structure was delivered that I could not sleep that night. I don't have a plan on paper yet, but the layout is etched in my brain. I will post before and after pics as soon as I have it finished. My personal goal is to have everything done before the first snow. Wish me luck!

This is the 615 I picked up awhile back. It is an old restoration but a nice complete pump. It’s going to a fellow Oldgasser that will convert it to a nice Skelly pump for his shop.

Good morning everyone.

Another nice day here, mid 70's with blue skies.

Yesterday afternoon I took a break on the deck and as I was sitting there a dragon fly landed on my leg. What was cool it just sat there for about 5 minutes. It let me take this pic then flew away. I can't recall ever having this happen to me. Maybe it will show up this afternoon, we'll see.

Have a good one everyone, be comfy and safe.
