Well, I didn't want to say anything until it was a for sure deal! As most of you know, the Wayne 50 showcase that was on ebay last week, was owned by a high school chum of mine and I had been trying to buy it for the last 7 years! I bought my first pump from the same guy and he had found them all in a scrap yard here in North Dakota! He had always claimed that he would probably never sell it but said he would contact me when he did! He called me out of the blue during the first part of november and informed me that he planned on putting it on ebay. I rushed right over to his house and spent the next 2 hours explaining why he should not do that and why he should sell it to me! Nothing worked and he did post a sale ad on ebay last week, and there was about a day left on the auction when it happened!
He called me and explained that he was having second thoughts about the ebay sale auction and was thinking about pulling the sale. He then asked if my offer from 2 weeks previous was still open, and of course I replied that it was indeed. He said that if I would purchase it for my earlier offer, he would pull the auction and I could have the pump!
Well, I was still a little leery, even after he had pulled the auction and was not going to celebrate until I had paid for the pump and the deal was final! We had agreed to meet on monday and this afternoon I drove over and paid the man, and the pump is now officially mine!
Quite a journey of 7 years and I'm still not sure why he did what he did, except that he said he had thought about it long and hard and had decided he wanted me to have this pump! Knowing the history and story behind this pump just makes it all the more special for me! I can't wait until next summer to get started restoring it! Thanks to all that helped!

Great news Kevin, glad it worked it out for you. I think you made a real impression on him. I talked to him a few times and for some reason he just wasn't ready to part with it. Seems that reason was you! Nice to see good things happen to nice people for the right reasons. Merry Christmas!

Ditto on the above post, Kevin is a credit to this hobby. Nice to see him get what he was looking for after he's helped me do the same.
