When Ryan was cleaning t5hings out and selling them, I bought this neato Pump Puzzle with a Tokheim 36B at an old building/service station. My wife and I put it together in the evenings and had a great time doing it! Tara Worsham had indicated an interest in it, so she gets it next! If anyone else is interested, we can make it the OLD GAS Traveling Pump Puzzle! Contact Tara to be the next in line!
The puzzle is complete and a real challenge to put together!
Have fun----KEVIN

Kevin sign the inside of the box top. Might be kind of neat to see all who have had it.

Nice looking "photo", of what it looks like when completed.

Someone can have my turn with it. I would "play nice" for atleast 30 seconds and then start with larger and larger hammers until the pieces started to fit... confused

For some reason I doubt it would look like the photo Kevin posted, once I got through with it and it started on its way again. blush

Hey, anyone interested in owning a "new in box" same puzzle? I have one that's never been opened. Maybe you guys could send it around after the first one to replace lost pieces! Sam

I forget who started it, but maybe 10 years ago we sent pictures of our collections around in a shoebox. Each shop talk member would add some photos or a disc with their pics. Some threw in some goodies (matchbooks, etc) for those down the line.
Might have been Frankie Geisler that started it. Hubba and Don Sherwood among others were before me. I think I sent it to Colorado. Seems like it was close to a year or year and a half before it made its way around.


Wanted: Gas pump globes:Sinclair & affiliates, IL companies. Ripple bodies. Anything Sinclair, Stoll, Pierce, 4 Bros.

I think it's a neat idea, too. It might take me awhile to get it done, but whoever wants it next, let me know!
