I finally got the glass in my W-50. Now it will not be easy to add or change anything because only one side opens. I crammed 105 items in it.

I'm not sure what type of sign the Firestone Station had, in the image I posted...

But, perhaps it was something like this one?

Thanks for all the complements.

"If there is such a thing as king of the gas pumps ,I think that one qualifies ! That is really nice Matt ."

To me I think the King would be a Tokheim 36ADC.

"Is that globe real? Did Firestone ever sell gasoline?"

The globe is a copy of an original. Firestone stores did sell gas. The globe on the display pumps was usally the gas brand such as Texaco. They sold different brands of gas.

"I knew someone was firestone collecting with a very strong motive. Killer pump!!"

All the stuff in the dislay was bought in the last 13 mounths except for two items that I already owned.

I've never seen a nicer Wayne 50, let alone one that the owner took such pride in the display contents. I'm humbled. It's awsome Matt, and I am jealous.
