Day 2 of an amazing trip back into the past, in search of a rather large load of very old gas pumps.
Last night we got to experience the east coast snostorm, up close and personal! We didn't have trouble with our rig but we had to avoid the traffic, because they just aren't equipped for the snow out here.
We are 50 miles from our destination and I will be sure to take lots of pictures.
I can't tell you who I'm with and neither can Tom Buckles and John Kramer. We're somewhere on the east coast and still headed east. We're slowly driving out of the snow and its 45 degrees and no snow at our destination.
Ill try to post more later but won't have photos until next week when I get home.
Have a great day! WE ARE!

crazy Sounds like Moe-Larry-and Curly on a road trip. Just picture in your mind the scene where the Stooges were attendants at the Gas Station and blew-up the old car with the Professors. Better buy Chevron Stock if the silver Dodge is on the road! LOL. laugh

Based on the company you are keeping, this is no load of 5' pumps. If there is a spare G&B 84 or 85 Showcase, put my name on it, haha!

Ok, so we drove out of the snow this morning and found some 40 degree weather. That was just fine for a "working" afternoon, so we took inventory and unloaded the tools and went to work.
Tom is a h**l of an organizer and John is a pump gutting machine! We started late and still managed to gut over 20 pumps while we emptied 4 different buildings of parts and pumps and organized it all for loading!
We saved the best for tomorrow and hopefully we'll be able to.start loading in the afternoon. Lots of pumps yet to work on and a big dumpster to load with scrap.Plenty of work for 3 people, but every one of us had a big smile on all day.
I'm taking a lot of pictures and will start posting them next week after I get. home. Weather looks a lot better for travel the next few days too! Finally got a good meal and we're going to get a good nights rest before the big day tomorrow. This truly is a "trip back in time"!

So these three stooges disappear over the Smokey Mtns to some ultra secret location with a renowned pump gutter armed to the teeth with wrenches (solid and liquid) and probably BEER. And they disappear! Sounds like an OG version of Lord of the Pumps as our veterans disappear into the Misty Mtns (cue Led Zepplin's Ramble On)!
Hopefully a few pictures are tossed our way soon to satisfy our curiosity about their quest. It should be quite the tale.

The load has arrived in Indiana and I'm currently sitting in the Indianapolis airport waiting for my flight home. I'm pretty darn tired and worn out, but I had a really great time and had a truly unique experience that truly was a "trip back in time"!
Pictures will follow tomorrow after I get home and get them downloaded.

Very easy to get on the plane and no worries about the residual gas in them either.

OK--Here we go with the pictures! I'll try to let the pictures do all the talking, and I will add comments below each one to try and define what you're looking at.
We journeyed by vehicle from Toms home in Indiana, to the Lowry Oil Co. bulk plant in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. We made a diversionary side trip to view Thornton Beroths collection on the way there, and were treated to a full tour of his complete and impressive collection. We also were able to stop at the Wayne Story antique store on the way home, where we sold a couple of items and we even purchased a couple of pieces! We were then Waynes guests as we were given the full tour of his impressive collection!
There are far too many things to be able to tell you about on this web site, such as how Tom found this plant and began negotiations 20 years ago, to the weather problems we encountered, to all the fun and funny little things that happened to us! You'll have to get those stories from each of us at the upcoming shows around the country!
NOW FOR THE PICTURES!

This is what I thought was the find of the whole trip! It was a complete, untouched case of Skychief lenses for glass bodies. It was hidden behind some boxes on a lower shelf and when Tom reached down and pulled this box out, we were all speechless! What a treasure!

There were a lot of junk pumps and parts left over from the gutting process and they were all loaded into a large steel recycling dumpster. It wouldn't hold everything we wanted to put into it, but we worked pretty late into the night, trying to get it as full as we could!

Back by the fence, there were 2 pole signs that were in good shape, and some pieces of pole signs that had been cut up and destroyed! You could just make out the fact that there was one buried under a bunch of leaves and trash, and when we brushed everything aside, it looked as though there was another one underneath it! Looked like we'd have to do a little excavating, but probably worth it! Was that ever a surprise!!

Heres the last pictures I took as we rolled out to the front of the bulk plant and said our goodbyes before we hit the long trail for home.
It was already Saturday afternoon and we had to stop at Wayne Storys yet before we could find a room for the night. After figuring out our time schedule, we ended up driving until 1 AM, so that we would have enough time to make it to Indianapolis and still get me over to the airport for my flight back to North Dakota! I had to explain that the Warden was expecting me, and tardiness would not go over well with her after this much time being gone! LOL

Here are the last of the pictures as we headed back to Indiana and the end of a very satisfying trip and a great experience between 3 good friends!
I feel very grateful to have been able to experience this in my lifetime, as age seems to creep up on us at a high rate of speed and it won't be that many years before I would be physically unable to complete a trip such as this!
It was very physically demanding, with long hours, little sleep, and hard work! BUT---man-o-man, was it ever worth it!
I hope all of enjoy the pictures and the descriptions and be sure to ask any of us about the trip at the next show you happen to see one of us at! We'll all be at Peotone, so the stories should flow rather freely yet! LOL

THANKS!! Tom--John--Kevin

Thanks for the images, Kevin... And bringing back,some similar memories...

When I started in the Hobby, most every Bulk Plant (most every medium sized and above Community had such a Plant) had such a "grave yard"... The difference of course was, there were very few "modern Pumps" and instead there was an abundance of "Clock-faced" and early Computers..... With some visibles that were finally being upgraded...

All too often such 'yards... Were used a fill materials in the "New" Stations of the 1960s and early 70s... Before the "Gas Shortage"...

If only we had had a "crystal ball" that would tell us how much this Hobby, would explode in popularity.....

wink Thanks for the pictures and the monolog on the trip. My favorite part was digging up the 6 foot TEXACO Signs, as if they were Potatoes! They all looked in very good condition. These stories are always more interesting when you know the players. I'm sure it was backbreaking work, but enjoyable with good friends! Kudos!

Now I am sure some of you local Oldgassers that knew of this place will want to know how I found it, how long ago and how I got it bought.

The year was either 1993 or early 1994. My "wife to be" at the time and I were on a road trip down the coast and all the back roads I could take seeing the sights and of course I was checking out bulk plants. I ask Janet the other day what year she thought it was that we stopped there for the first time. She said if you will remember we stayed with my aunt in Eden NC and she made us sleep in separate rooms because we were not married yet...LOL, so that pins the years down fairly close since we married in 1994.

Of course they were not interested in selling. The one thing I told them was "it's your stuff, if you don't want to sell then keep it, it's yours to do as you please" They seemed to appreciate that because some people would get pushy or upset that they said no. They always said they appreciated my attitude. Over the years I would always call at least twice a year just to remind them that I was still interested in buying it all. On many calls I would not even ask if they wanted to sell yet. It got to the point that when I called they would call my kids by name and ask how they were doing, our daughter went to school at UNC.

So I just gave away my trade secrets (not all of them), be nice/respectful and be really, really, patient....good things come to those who wait...or something like that.

I finally got a call last October that they were interested in selling, I about died. They had other people that they promised to give them a shot at it so I had to wait till all the others were in and done. I was the first one to make an offer (usually not the best plan but...) and the rest is history.

I have to thank John and Kevin for their help, they are some of the best friends you could have!

Now on to the next haul...............There's more, I don't know when but I know where.....

Tom.

Remember guys--this was strictly Toms deal, and John and I went along, just to help Tom, and for the experience of it all! We got paid at the food counters we visited, as Tom usually picked up the tab, but we weren't along for compensation--just the experience!
Darin is right when he says he more than likely will never have an experience like this, and I was of the same mindset until this opportunity came up! To even get to experience something like this, is all the compensation that I needed, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
The laughter was frequent and the company was great. There weren't any problems that 3 guys couldn't handle, because we worked as a team, and we enjoyed every minute! Truly the experience of a lifetime, and a real life journey "back in time"!

Having bought out several bulk plants myself and doing all the moving, in most cases with paid help, Tom's trips are a Hoot! He takes care of everything and I was just the labor. I was fortunate enough to go along into Mississippi a while ago on a pick. Had John with us then as well. Great bunch of friends. Wore me out in two days but met many "colorful" locals and had fun. Tom's trips are like a "Disney World Ride" for old guys! As Kevin said, the stuff is all Tom's, the trip experience is the real value. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

One of my other thoughts looking at all those pictures is all the great stuff that gets saved and will be back out there in circulation or in someone's collection being cherished , not sold for scrap to be melted or buried and mashed with a high lift in a hole by a throttle happy farmer! Lol ....I know the bulk plant is different but we have all heard those horror stories. I hope we see more of these documented trips on here in the future , puts a smile on ones face to read such a wonderful story!
