I just love this first picture, it looks like one of those made up collage paintings. But it's not, it's real and I just hauled over a hundred pumps out of this fine mess. Sometimes they were stacked so deep I didn't know what was on the bottom. It was a treasure hunt. It's out there!

Tom.

Well I have a liitle space left in my pump yard but it's getting a little hard to maneuver my truck thru it as you can see.

Again here is a perfect example of the benifits to going to gas shows, a guy walks up to me at Peotone and says he has some gas pumps he wants to sell....my lucky day!

And thank goodness for my electric powered hand truck, couldn't live without it.

You are right Ryan, if only Gas Pump Rob could have filmed this we would all be famous, you know, with his Hollywood connections and such...LOL.
