A few months back, I received a phone call from another Old Gasser that was wanting to finish his Chevelle project and it was going to cost some serious money to finish it the way he wanted! He knew that I was first on the list for gas pumps if he was going to sell, and he was calling to see if I was ready to buy!
I ended up buying two rare pumps from him, but he was so far away that I couldn't pick them up for a couple months! I was kind of planning a long road trip (16 hours) when he called and informed me that he had a ride lined up to the oil fields of North Dakota if I was interested! I was plenty interested, and we got everything arranged and I met the delivery man in Williston, North Dakota at 7pm one evening and we made the transfer! It was still a 4 1/2 hour trip one way for me, but much better than 16! LOL
I had to bring them home and drop them into storage, as there was too much going on! I had my sale at the end of february to deal with, as well as a vacation to Florida with the Warden and then on to the Peotone show and auction that I really didn't want to miss! The auction was crazy and one that I will never forget!
Well, its finally settled down and I was able to get the first one hauled to my shop and begin the clean-up, so as to display it! This is the cleanest, straightest, nicest Wayne 60S that I have ever been next to! The veeder Root is like new and resets so easily, you can do it by hand! The light switch is fully functional and looks like it did when it was new! The entire pump is intact, and is perfectly straight and dent free, and there are no rust issues anywhere! one would almost think this pump was used inside a building for its service years! At least under a canopy anyway! The only problem with it is a missing showcase door! Someone removed one at some point and its been lost forever! I can live with that and find another door! LOL
I want to thank Scott Taylor--AKA--HOTRODFUN, for holding to his word and selling me these 2 pumps when the time came for them to go! Scott, you made my year when you called that day!
Oh yeah--the other pump! Well, thats another whole story, and I'm not going to tell it at this point, but it won't be long before it makes the trip out of storage for a full blown restoration! The Wayne will stay "as is" but the other pump will be getting the big deal and become an inside show pump! Details to follow at a later date! LOL

I might add that I spent a full day detailing it and scrubbing a lot of parts in the sink! It was hard work, but this pump really cleaned up nice! I even got the local locksmith to make some keys for the original locks! Both are keyed the same! Nice!
