Just putting numbers on this, 200 globes at $1000.00 each, 100 unrestored pumps at 2000.00 each, by the looks of it 100 electric pumps at 500.00 each, and 100 signs at 1000.00 each. How in the world do we get to $1,000,000.00 and this is just giving them the benefit of the doubt ? But what fun !!

Well he cut the price 1/2, and cut the 100 pumps to 1/2 too - but what do you guys think this is really worth?

There are some very hard to find things hidden in DthAT DthERE piles!

I did see a Bowser C-110 TOP but no bottom - wheres the bottom! I would like to see someone find a bottom to put that on if it's not there! Let's see, as far as I know I am the only one here with a Bowser C-110, but mine does not have the "dial-a-gallon computer" or it's door "been looken 5 years for one now".

I talked to the guy he really wants 250k but he is a picker who is trying to help sell the collection. I really don't think a collector would buy this lot as there is not one super rare item in the bunch. Sure there are a few older pumps but not enough to justify the $$$. You would have to find a dealer. The dealer would want to make some $$ so I think the collection would have to be priced somewhere aroun $100k or so. Just my .02 Here is a link to all the pics:

I've talked with the guy several times and have tried to explain that he would probably have better luck splitting it into 3 or 4 lots (signs, pumps, globes, and cans or misc stuff). He says the owner of this stuff has been picking for 40 yrs to get the collection to where it's at. The owner says it all goes in one lot or not at all.

I offered a very large sum of money for the globes and after seeing the globes my offer was probably right at retail value. Very nice guy to talk to but he just thinks what he has is gold.

Look at the bright side - at least he did not die and have his family bring in a bunch of dumpsters and start hauling stuff to the dump - and we all find out 6 months later! In the end this will all end up in our hands one way or another.

Miles Little is a good friend of mine and I gave him the phone number to check this out. To make a long story short Miles called the guy and it lasted about 20 seconds after finding out who was on the other end. Miles hung up and said he had dealings with this guy not to long ago that is representing this stuff and would never deal with him again. Those of you that know Miles know he is straight shooter and gets along with everybody. After Miles told me what this guy did I say anybody that is interested in this stuff better be able to put there hands on it to check it out and make sure who does own it.
