It`s hard to pick one, but our favorite is the Tokheim 620. This is the first pump my wife & I did together. She`s helped me do many pumps, oil racks, and Coke machines since, but this is where we started.

Cool stuff, guys!

This was a tough decision for me to choose just one thing. I've got favorites in my Zephyr Gas, Buick and Bardahl collections, but I picked this Steelcote auto paint can because it captures the essence of my main collecting interest, old body shop items. This can is near mint, is dated 1926 and shows that it is from my home town, St. Louis. Gotta love the graphics with the brush paint job.

Hey JimT, The can is a pint, about 3 3/4" tall. Thanks.

Not to make the others in my "collection" jealous, but this has got to be my current favorite :

I guess everyone has a favorite sign , and a favorite pump. I will stick with the sign for now.The base is not original, but the sign was a complete unit when I bought it. had some condition problems and was original.After it sat in my garage for about 3 years, I bit the bullet and had it restored professionally. now I am trying to find an original base.this is also my wifes favorite sign.

Here is a script top that I am working on. I still need to install a hose and the hose guards. It is in my attached garage and I hooked it up to a motion sensor. Everytime I leave or come home it turns on for 4 minutes. I love seeing it from the street all lit up at night. This is my most favorite piece in my collection.
