Matt I complain about my 2 car garage and the cramped quarters but you have shown what you can do with real planning and good weather! Keep the cars outside.
It's the first full day of football, so I will pile on so to speak, with the compliments-nicely done.

Awsome pictures Matt!

Everytime I visit with Matt we end up hanging out in the garage. It's always hard for me to stay on topic of conversation because I'll notice something else I hadn't before. He has filled every available space with the hard to find smalls. It's truly a beautiful collection to see!!


Wanted anything Flying A Gas, Signal Gas, Hancock oil co, and Sunland.

Thanks Anthony

I've said it before I love your collection!!! Love the original stuff so much more than the over restored polished plated pumps.I do miss seeing that pickup though.

Thanks for all the complements. It has been fun as well as a challenge to get all this stuff in a two car garage and still be able to see most of it. Two years ago I said there was no more room but it still keeps coming in. Yesterday I added a 30 inch GMC sign I got from Big BLock Cat (Anthony). I do miss looking at my last truck I sold but do not miss driving it. I got burnt out on the trucks after 29 years. I owened some where around 30 1955-1972 Chevy and GMC trucks. I do enjoy the extra space after the truck left in July 2012 and the money I was able to spend on my collection. All my friends keep trying to get me to take over my wifes garage. I tell them she needs a space to through her stuff she does not want in the house any more. Have any of you guys had your wife stick stuff in your garage or shop that is no yours? Her own garage prevents this. Here is the truck Petroholic misses seeing.

awesome truck... somehow there is a good percentage of people who collects pumps that have 50's chev or ford trucks... we've got a 56 Chev long wheel base in resto running the same GMC hood you have.. cant wait till we get it on the road..

Once again .. a stunning collection ... and many thanks for putting them on.
cheers
Martin
