These probably aren't the right vintage to interest collectors, but I was surprised to see this pic from a Getty Station in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. from 1/1/2012.

And that Pepsi machine in the background has the wrong logo for my tastes.

We still have a station locally, in Mosherville, MI, that uses similar stainless steel pumps from the late 60's, early 70's. I imagine as long as they pass inspection of weights and measures and are certified, the age of the unit doesn't particularly matter. We know many farmers are still using 50 or 60 year old pumps on the farm. Obviously correct measure doesn't matter to them, but it goes to show the pumps can work for many many years!

I'm sure they can still work fine. I was just surprised that some stations were still using them after it became more convenient to pay at the pump with Speedpass, or debit or credit cards.
