Matt, I like the short A1. I have one of these here and was looking for ideas. Your display cabinet is really nice. Hope you don't mind if I use it? Paul www.severngaspumps.com

Matt you obviously like rare pumps. Your display of pumps look awesome.


Originals only for me. Always looking for Simpson oil, Super A, and MFA oil cans and globes.

I guess no one else wants to join and show some pictures of how their display or work area has changed. Here is another corner in the garage.

Matt, you have a fantastic Collection!

This version of my Collection evolves, but since I have only the 1 pump at this time... All that have changed in my garage are oil cans and signs....... Compared to what you have displayed, my collection would be considered a "poor country bumpkin cousin"...LOL

Thanks for the look see!

Thanks for the comments. I started collecting pumps in 1995. From then until 2006 or 2007 I did not keep any in the garage. I had about 16 pumps at the time the "then" pictures were taken. They slowly moved in the garage and side yard and like rabbits kept multiplying. In the last two years I started adding some cans and signs to the collection.

Big B1, your pumps are nice. Pretty soon your garage will change.

I will post some side yard pics next. Been getting rid of trucks and parts to buy pumps. Sold five trucks and lots of parts.

Last pics. There used to be clutter and garbage cans in this corner. The corner was cleaned for the house paint to get done and put pumps back instead of the clutter.

Thanks guy's. The building was built for work, before the habit started. Now the habit is taking over the building. So it's somtimes hard to keep a nice display with work & clutter. Maybe I can show it in bits-n-pieces, instead of now & then. Just thought I was getting a good collection until I joined here & saw all the great stuff ya'll have posted.
