I've been working on cars since I was a kid. My dad worked nights with my granddad at the phone company and they would bring me along to gas up the trucks, check the oil and wash them. My first car was a 66 mustang and I was always working on it to make it look and run better. Eventually my mother, tired of washing all my greasy cloths, gave me a set of coveralls embroidered with Hardy's Garage above a standard oil patch. I guess it stuck and, believe it or not, 50 years latter I still have the coveralls. Unfortunately they have shrunk as I surly can't have gotten that much bigger.

The avatar is a photo of my 54 F100 street rod that I built and have owned in one form or another since 1974 and our families best friend.

It was bittersweet to look at some of these...

Old Iron and I had a number of pms that I have saved. He also sent me e-mail pictures of his 'yard art' that was so cool, it was used on at least one occasion as a film set. He also was really generous with showing his collections and sharing his wisdom about collecting to anyone who visited. He called his collection his museum, and Bob and I were trying to figure out if we could swing by and see him on our next trip to a cactus convention, when he passed away.

He did not have an avatar, but either Jim or one of the moderators put his picture in there after he passed away, and I am really glad to see it. He was such a gentleman with a big heart and that picture shows it.

And for those of you wondering why DB's avatar is not the pump he describes, he changed his avatar on a regular basis. During my tenure, it was two different kind of pumps (one being a Sunset Tok 34 twin) and a weird shark/cat thing. One of the pumps was yellow with white lathe behind it, and looked like an old jaundiced guy with glasses--that I asked DB if that was a self portrait. The one you see now is his beloved dog Ben Hur, who lived to be 15--smoking must be really good for dogs then cause that was old for a dog! I think that Avatar showed up after the last Iowa gas where Mick posted pic's of DB playing with Micks pug Bella. The black sash was added after DB passed away.

And Cold Pizza did have a cold pizza avatar! And it looked both mouth-watering and icky at the same time...

So glad this thread was brought back up. I missed it, but won't this time.

I've been working on a 32 ford roadster for about 8 years now, collecting period correct parts has been a very slow process to build a 40's style traditional hot rod, it's taken a lot patience but is worth it.

My wife came into the shop when I was placing another piece on the car that I found and she said " when you get that thing done you'll be DoneFor". It stuck.
Have gas all the time

This has been a fun thread to read. Some of the user names have a lot of thought and creativity in them. Mine, not so much! I've been collecting gas pump Salt and Pepper shakers about 15 years now and chose SandPCollector as my user name.

Regards, Jim

I collect gas pump salt and pepper shakers
and the plastic coin banks both made by AVSCO.
