Keep working on her for the full size pump! My wife objected at the idea at first but now she wants the Fry 17 restored and in the living room corner!

I have a nice restored Gulf pump, stainless and front panels painted. About 5 ft high. I'll email pics if you're interested.

Show her a narrow 60, that's petite. If it meant the difference between in or out you could always exclude the globe (which would be hard for me). My next choice might be an Exacto Sentry.

I'm in the same boat, no pumps in the house...yet. Hmmm come to think of it the last two globes and pumps I bought cost me some land scaping. Pumps just got more expensive. LOL

Good Luck
Kim

I had a pump it my living room before I got married and it stayed. When we sold my house and bought another one together my wife picked a nice spot in the entry way by the stairs. It looks better there than it did in the old house. My wife likes cars and automobilia. She has four display cases and some shelves full of cars. I have two display cases full of trucks and shelves from the celing to floor full of 50s and 60s tonka trucks in the dinning room. The other 19 gas pumps are in the garage and outside.


I like shoebox pumps [Linked Image]

The neon looks really quite good,gives a nice uniform lighting down the cylinder. it's tucked up under the hat brim so it's not that noticable when standing in front of the pump. It's nicer than the kunky porcelain sockets and bulbs,

Are we allowed to use the word petite? I like "smaller than average" lol


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.

JUST MY OPINION!!!!

A "petite" pump is a Tokheim 39 or MS 80 Lots of farm pumps! But bring something in with a little style. I live in a cubby hole of a house. I have alot of nice pumps in the garagemahal. But this Tokheim 39 fits in very well.



Not a great picture but ya' get the idea. If you have a wife that does not like gas pumps,,,find a new hobby
