Hey Everybody,

I would have to say my favorite five pumps are, double Bowser Visible (not sure of model number - mine is missing), Wayne 60S, Butler 71 visible, Wayne 491 and Butler 133 Clock face. I have 3 of the 5 and working to get the fourth and 5th ones. I also want a Wayne 626 would trade my 53 Pontiac Chieftan 2-door hardtop for one of these.

I would have to say:
(1) The Tokheim 850. I took this pump for granted using it on the family farm as a kid in the 50's up until 1984 when we replaced it with a newer-used Tokheim purchased from the local Co-op. My Dad purchased the used 850 from the Co-op in 1948 for $50 complete with a TEXACO globe. During its lifetime it pumped over a half million gallons and is now restored. I still call it "Dad's pump" and still remember the look on his face when he saw it for the first time restored.
(2) The Wayne 60. I have restored one and have another waiting and would like several more. This is my other favorite because of their unique design gives you many different painting options, ease of finding repo parts and ease of dis-assembly.
I might add that any pump that has any sentimental value, was a gift, or one that didn't come easy to you will be one of your favorites. What a GREAT hobby and a GREAT website.
Thanks,
Rod van Pelt

Have to cast my vote for the Bennett 966. I love its lines. It's got a great blend of retro 50's era appeal but also a clean and simple look as well.

Take care,

Favorite? Its like picking a Favorite Son or Daughter. I love them all in their own way. I know I am a dork ..but everytime I get a new pump, I clean them up , dress them right and give them a Loving Home. I must say I love and respect my art deco clockface elders a great deal. oop - gotta run - I hear my lil baby Bowser cryin in the Garage - I know she just wants attention but I cant help it - I am a big softy. Hold on I'm coming lil baby Bowser.

I'm like Minuteman, Nothing beats the Erie 50. A close second though is the Bowser 300's f and r. And the third would be a Wayne 805 twin pump.

Hello, Wayne 60, Mae West, Mobilgas
Script Top. In that order. I
hesitate to include the Tokheim
850 because I have a lot of pent
up anger regarding that pump. I
have attempted to buy three
different ones, failing each time.
