Me and my kids wanted to share pictures of our collection. Our stuff is not that rare or mint but is special to me due to all the memories and fun finding it . My daughter is now 10 and has went with me on about every excursion finding it . She says she cant wait to start this summer. My son who is 8 now likes to work on the gas pumps , we managed to get two redone in 2012 and are looking forward to a couple more this year . The 96 Gilbarco Sinclair pump was our first pump we did and the Mobil script 80 was our second this fall. The little rusty red Mobil regular Gilbarco 996 is our favorite, It was my grandfather's and he let me help fuel his tractors during hay season in the early 80's , and I can still remember to this day the sound it made when using it. But anyways, here's our little collection we wanted to share and hope you all enjoy!

That's a great collection you have there. I see you are hooked on visible pumps too. My kids enjoy going with me as well and we have had a lot of fun together finding all of the cool stuff in our collection. It is always fun to look at a pump or sign and reflect back on the day we found it. Lots of good family bonding time.
