i have a question. which pump is the #1 pump? NOT THE MOST $$$VALUABLE. NOT THE RAREST. but which one is everyones favorite? - i bought my first pump in 1988. i had never heard of gilbarco/wayne/bennett/etc.... but i ended up with 1 then 2 then 3-4-etc... 6 foot elect. pumps. and i only wanted 1 to restore for my driveway. i couldnt get interested in any i had gotten i never saw any books or nothin then. i planned on paintin one with house of color candy paint & puttin major time in it. but these i had didnt do it for me. BUT then i saw a pump near my house one day. so i pulled in & said thats the one i want!!! i ran over to see the tag on it. AND... it said WAYNE cut60! the dude gave it to me FREE! so i went around & gave all my 6 away. FREE!!! & dont regret it a bit. ive got lots of 60s now! thats my favorite BY FAR!!!

My vote splits 4 ways, Wayne 800, Wayne 576, National Duplex & SSE 160 Ecometer (Below). I'm still looking for the last two if anyone has one for sale or even better, a trade?

I think all the ones mentioned so far are great but I'd add a National A-38 especially with some signal add glass.

I'll have to cast my vote for a Wayne 70. It's certainly not rare or fancy, but it just seems to stir the memory banks in me. I'm lucky enough to remember using them along the back roads of California, Oregon, and Nevada in the 60's and 70's and just thinking how cool it was watching that spinner go around as we had gas pumped into our car. I guess that's why I like the common stuff in general.

My favorites are the tokheim 850--950 ,I have 4, 2 round and 2 square base. I'd also like to have a Wayne 800 , that Eco looks good too. I have other pumps like a-38's wayne 70-80's etc etc. Once you're hooked you can't have enough. Am I the only one afflicted with this illness ?

Hi everyone!

Myself, I'm partial to the M&S 80's. You can make a complete collection out of them and not have two the same style. You've got short bases and tall bases with cast bases and stamped bases. Then you get into the tops - smooth; tall and short, with and without sight glass, Ad Glass tops, Script tops (in different versions/brands), different face designs, etc.

And the kewl access door with the 'push-button' release in the side allowing the way-kwel hinges to swing the doors out of the way for service - now that's really neat design work.

Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of other pump styles and versions, but the M&S 80's offer so many different looks that you can cover an entire wall with 'em and the non-collector won't even realize that they're all the same pump in different variations and brands.

Jim

P.S. I also love the Wayne 60's and the 800. I'd do almost anything to get at least one of each (except fork out the cash, that is!).

In my opinion, not just voicing what I like but what I've seen in pricing and talking with fellow collectors my top three guesses would be: 1) Wayne 60 2) National A38 3) M/S 80 with the taller top. Just my opion boys.

Well, I couldn't pass up the chance to put in my two cents worth here. My favorite two pumps are the WAYNE CUT#60, and the WAYNE CUT#60. I just can't pass one up. They are soooo stylish! I have several of the other pumps mentioned in this post, but the #60 has my heart! The only thing better than a #60 , is a clock face #60.

Just my 2 cents but I love the fry17 bennett371 (i cant collect enough of these) and tok 36b. Plain pumps I know and nothing to get all excited about but I love the look and no matter how many I get and restore I think each one has its own personality.

Love national a-1/b-1 pumps
Looking to own a Tokheim 34
Pogo's 730 Wayne is up there battling for second place.

Okay a moment of clarity and honesty pump guys. Most of us would love to own or have owned nearly all of them. 1 is never enough.

For those of you who like the M&S/Wayne 80 be sure to see my article in the next issue of "Check the Oil!." It is all about the 80 showing a couple of version that did not make the gas pump book.
