Now that's a perfect example of value vs worth.
I as an Oklahoman would find it ridiculous to even think about paying that for a house of that age and size.
However its all about location not true worth because there is no true worth just what someone is willing to pay.

Whats valuable to me might be worthless to another but I am glad there is a free value section and always grateful to those who take the time to give their opinions and advise .


I like SINCLAIR and old American made stuff ... No china items.

It is only worth that because of what someone is willing to pay. (NOT ME!)

In other parts of the country, this house can be had for as low as $21,000.

This is just an example of the huge fluctuation in what someone values items that live in different areas across the country. This goes for everything that is bought and sold, period.

There you go. Some sanity. Now all you lazy guys get back to work writing down all those auction , ebay and private sales valuations so we can find out the exact value of each and every item.

Most of the new comers are too worried about getting burnt on an item that they have NO time to do any research. And by research I mean Google what ever it is they are looking for and if it doesn't pop up on the top two results. . .well here we are.

That's part of the problem, some did Google the item & Oldgas Pops up near the top & HERE THEY ARE!
VERY FEW will search Auction Zip, Proxi Bid or any where else. There are members HERE that are ebay or store sellers, but they will post here for US to do their searching.

As a noob here I'd like to offer a fresh perspective. I think long-time members here are way too worried about what people asking for values in the value forum are "up to." The fact that this thread even exists at all is quite a statement.
I'm personally not asking anybody to do any work or research for me. The problem with these items is that they're somewhat rare and they come in all kinds of conditions and completeness.
My two posts in the value forum for the Wayne 60 and the Gilbarco 96 illustrate that well. How could a rookie easily price items like those? Of course its worth what I'd pay for it, but it helps a rookie to see what everyone else might pay for it also based on their knowledge base. As of now my Wayne post has 102 views, but not even one comment. Quite different from other forums I'm a member of.

WE Do this thread approx every 6 Months, it gets more posting instead of just Reading others posting!

How hard is it to search ebay for completed Sold Pumps & COMPARE CONDITION of what sold & what your considering Buying?
What did the Other Forums tell you the pumps are worth?

I agree with DB. Not difficult to determine the value of Wayne 60's. Lots of listings on e-Bay and even on this site.

I actually did search eBay for sold listings with the term "wayne 60 pump." Tried it without the word pump. That helped me learn about all the neato Wayne Gretsky items. With 'pump' I now know what all of the little die cast miniatures go for...plus a few select Wayne 60 parts. The only two pumps that sold are in a totally different state of being than what I'm eyeballing. And even they had a $500 price difference. That's what I was trying to explain earlier.
What are the odds that I'd find a sold item on eBay comparable to the one I'm looking at? I doubt many 20 year old painted shells of Wayne 60's go off very often, but certainly users here could more easily put a range on said item that they might pay if given the chance to buy it. A simple "at least $600" or "not a penny over $1,200 because of all of the missing parts" would be better than nothing. Heck even "nice find" or "that's the wrong red" would be nice.
DB I haven't posted anything anywhere other than oldgas.
