I just wanted to thank everyone in Old Gas Land...I just finished my first pump, a Gilbarco 996, a Christmas gift for my father. I converted it to a display case for practical purposes (he's old school...everything needs a purpose). Without this site and the expertise of the members, I never would have been able to complete it. As it was, I tightened the last bolt at 9:30 Christmas eve to get to my parents by 10! Thanks to Scott (my Christmas savior) and all of you. Best wishes for healthy & happy New Year to all.

Thanks for all the Cudos, but if it wasn't this sight and you guys being so generous with info and leads, it would never have gotten done. I also need to thank Chuck & Sue from Pergl's. Chuck from Chuck's Trucks LLC and my buddy Scott who came to my 11th hour call (cry) for help!

Happy & Healthy New Year to All.
