Oldgas Road Trip Visits - Thu Jun 13 2019 02:50 PM

I'm such a lucky guy to be able to visit a couple of veteran Oldgas.com members on my recent road trip around Northern California and Southwest Oregon. Matt Alvarez showed me his gas pump collection at his home in the Sacramento, California area. He has fine tuned his collection with "rustoration" historically realistic restorations of unusual and sought-after gas pump models. Awesome. Great guy and loved every minute of it.

I've known Don "oltoydoc" Sherwood for over 20 years, but we never met face to face until now. His house, garage and location along the riverfront are a setting that dreams are made of. We could have visited for days looking at his collection and trading stories of adventures from the old days of collecting petroliana.

I agree with Sid, nice to see a couple of the collectors that I've read their names or comments on the forum for years but have never seen!

Loved the time I had at your house, Matt. So much to see and there's a story behind each gas pump. Bet you had a great time with Don.
