In 1990 I had just over 200 gas pumps, but they were stored in the two largest storage lockers near my house in St. Louis.

I may have been the first person who actively went in the business of selling used gas pump parts.

Most of my sales came from advertising in Love's publications, CTO and Tiger Rag.

I would imagine that back in the day, some of the pump distributors that were rebuilding pumps would have amassed a supply of derelict pumps to supply their own parts needs.

I used the word "may" purposely, wanted to get more responses. Even now I remember a place in or just outside Plain City, Ohio who had a ton of pumps in a field. I never stopped there as I had just purchased 21 pumps in Ohio. I couldn't see anything from the 30's mostly 50s & 60s pumps. I have a picture somewhere.

Stored in storage lockers? You could have just used them as a fence in your backyard and save the storage cost.

Not when you live in a sub-division.
