I have a few pictures to post, but they're still on the camera - I'll get them tomorrow.

BUT... in the mean time, let's see who can start off this month's installment with some great FATW pics!

Let's see 'em!

i found these salt and pepper shakers in Grand Junction Colorado.Note the "RED Horse".Both have farm scenes and were put out by GENERAL PETROLEUM which was owned by Mobil.They also had some side dishes that had farm scenes.Probably from the 30's or 40's.Over the years i have seen quite a few of these in antique stores,even the people that work there as a rule do nor realize they are Petro. related

Here is a great old D-X station that we ran across. I had known about it for a while (and posted it here before), but a few weeks ago, we were driving by and someone was there. It turns out that it's been in the guy's family for a couple of generations, and the owner was very nice and happy to let me look around. We had a very pleasant visit, and it was the second of this style D-X that I've been able to enter.

The station is very well preserved, and mostly original. The flat roof above the office windows has been "updated" in typical 1960s style, but it's otherwise untouched.




It turns out that even these bathrooms are original inside...


The half wall between the bays separated the lubrication bay (right) from the washing bay (left).

found this awhile back but i figured i'd share it. i tried to buy this wayne 60 off this guy who owns the farm it sits on but he still uses it. he also has a neptune 855 that has been crushed by a tree and a visible pump with original texaco pump plates, still uses all of them. i took pictures of the visible with my 35mm camera and eventually will get them developed and share them

these still sit in a little town and ive never been able to contact anyone to make an attempt to buy them.


this shell tokheim 39 disappeared a couple of weeks ago



this tokheim 300 sits behind an old station that they wont sell anything from behind.


a collector near me has this stack

Thankfully I can say I will never own a rail car tanker so I can scratch that off my must have list. But it is very cool all the same and I'll bet is even more impressive in person. We had to sand blast a 1920's passenger car last year and was that something.

Saw this on the way back from Virginia into S. Maryland on 301 between the Harry W. Nice Memorial Bridge and La Plata. Didn't have time to stop and ask but will next time I'm down that way. It's now a liquor store. What do you think on a possible date?

Came accross this G&B the other day, a couple miles from DodoGas's house, bet he's never seen it. My wife, God Bless Her, has an eye for pumps, spotted it at 40mph, behind a row of trees, the house, and a shed, she watches for globe bodies poking out above the rest of the junk and always spots pumps for me. The pump has been bolted to the same spot in an apple orchard since the 1940's, and I'm the first guy that has ever stopped by and asked about it, left my card as it wasn't for sale, yet! The owner said him and his brother shot the lenses out in the 50's, and his sons put a BB in the cylinder in the 70's, the tank underground is still half full.

Sorry about the lousy pic, taken on my iPhone.
