Well this winter I'll be working on a couple of pumps, making a frame to display my Sinclair mobile and a 1955 Penn Yan runabout wood boat. That should keep me out of trouble until spring.

So what's on your winter to do list?

Good topic, I hope to get time to work on a Bennett 373 and another 371, Tokheim 36B and an 850 too!

Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

It seems like anymore the seasons just sort of overlap each other and wintertime in the shop isn't much different from summer and I don't seem to get much finished either way. I have a few more hours to finish my Sell-A-Vision pump and hope to start on a couple more this winter. I seem to have this globe addiction and since I keep buying them I am going to have to build another shelf or two if I want to display them. I told myself when I built my showroom a couple of years ago that when it was full I would stop buying and start upgrading what I had. That hasn't worked for me so far. That boat project looks like more than a winter's worth of work for me Les.....GB

I can certainly relate to the waking up comment, but assuming that happens, I plan on putting together a Tokheim 36B DP, working on my G&B TC pump and hopefully organizing my little shop.

Dang that is one great pump Marshall and it looks like you have a very cool shop. That would get my butt out of bed every morning. GB, we don't get spring around here till the end of May so I should be close. I hope.

I started building a new garage early last year and it is now nearly completed. Part of the collection is now slowly being moved in from my overcrowded house. The second floor is where I have begun. I am happily surprised by some of it that has either been in storage for so long or just tucked away unnoticed and now I can properly display it. This will be an ongoing project but I am in no rush. For me it is Christmas every time I am in the garage. Cheers, Don.
