Matt, your collection of pumps is enviable! You don't really need two Wayne40's and I know a guy who really wants one!

Chris, the M&S 70 is brush painted. Wanted to try something different.

Lance, you would not want my 40s - they have no guts.

Matt, awesome to see your collection. Also great to see people just dont collect restored beauty queens. I was wondering the other day why we don't have a "show your garage thread"


Mainly focused on Oilzum, Jenney, Harris Oil items & original paint gas pumps.

Now you have seemed to outgrow your garage. Like the rest of us you need a bigger building and taller to grow with your great finds and restorations. Looks good

Terrific looking collection, Matt! You have a lot of "eye candy" there. Most of it looks as if one could lift up the nozzle from the receiver and start pumping gas into a vintage rig. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Agreed, Matt - you HAVE outgrown your garage. I'll tell you what (as a favor), I will take a few off your hands all you have to do is ship them to San Antonio and that will take care of your problem. LOL - VERY nice collection.

What is that truck that we can see the headlight of?

NOWWW I see the problem - you have too many trucks. I will extend my offer to me buying my own airline ticket and I will take those two old gas guzzlers off your hands and drive them back to San Antonio. Obvisously my original offer still stands and you can just load the pumps in the back of the truck(s). Anyway, back to reality - those are things of beauty you have an outstanding collection. I love the '56!!! Thanks for sharing.

I was messaging with my friend Kyle, a member here that mentioned this thread I did in 2011. He started collecting in 2011 and his collection has changed a lot sense then. Mine has changed a lot as well and decided to add to this thread with new updated pictures. There is more pictures this because it is too crowed to get good overall pictures. I did another thread in 2012 called The and now http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=313783&page=1 you may be interested in this one as well.

Looks great Matt. Awesome collection. Do you still have the trucks, or did you sell them for garage space??

Thank you for the comments.

The trucks are gone. I got burnt out on my truck hobby. The nice green one was the last to go. The sale of it is what got the Erie 53 and Wayne 50 (as well as some other things) into the collection.

The Signal pump with no ad glass is a Bennett 371, looks the same as a 541.

I remember you also had an outdoor collection--porcelain pumps I think. Good thinking about the trucks--you can get more pumps in your garage than trucks... : D

Beautiful collection!
