I know, I said the show was not worth watching, but I couldn't find anything else to do so.....
This guys (probably a paid actor) shows up at the pawn shop with a Wayne 70 gas pump. My wife and I jump out of the chair, it is one of the ones I sold Rick's Restoration years ago. The pawn buys it for $100.00.
He takes it to Rick's Restoration, Rick says, he was really surprised to see this pump. He describes how he can restore it. I'm expecting a Tokheim 39 when it is finished.
Still watching the show, will let you know what happens.

Well they rolled out a beautiful restored Wayne 70, don't know if it was the same pump, but that doesn't matter, it was beautiful.

One up for Rick.

It actually turned out a little better than the V39/Cavalier 72 transformation. Rick charged him $2,500 for the restoration. It looked good but was the wrong color. Looked like it should have been Polly. At least there getting closer to reality.

Why did Rick put the repo dino on top ? A pump of that age should have an older globe not that big Dino.

...there's a website for the show:

http://www.history.com/content/pawn-stars

...there's also a discussion board for the show (near the bottom right of the page)...I can't get it to work, but I'm sure a more computer-savvy Oldgasser can...it sure would be fun to post the truth about the show on the discussion board and see the reaction... grin

What a joke. Last time I was flipping channels they had a beat up old coke machine - stripped inside, and I mean this machine looked like it was dropped from a 747. It MIGHT have been worth 100.00 MAX - if I remember right they paid the guy 1200 for it.

I remember being in Vegas 12 years ago at a high end store in the Vegas mall were Rick had his restorations for sale. The prices were crazy and the fantasy items were everywhere. They had embossed VMC44 pop machines done in Pepsi and 7-Up for $8,000. The sad thing is VMC never made these and people were buying them. Maybe in Vegas anything is possible.

I was at that high end store in Caesers as well and saw the pumps. I spoke with the manager and sent her pictures of some of my pumps. She said they couldn't pay the prices they had them for sale in the store and said I understand. They had a single Wayne 70 in there for $4000. I told her I would bring my set of Texaco Wayne 70s in Fire Chief and Sky Chief with original globes and pump plates delivered for $4,000. They passed. And I would put my restored pumps up against anybodies. LOL
