Good morning everyone.

I wanted to do something a little different for this months pump of the month. In an effort to get more participation out of everyone involved, this month's pump is YOUR favorite gas pump or pump's in your collection and tell me why! Any pump, just YOUR favorite and why!

Have a great month everyone and can't wait to see this thread!

My favorite pump in my collection is my Wayne 60-S. About 8 years ago or so I noticed an ad was posted on a local classifieds list. The title said "Old Gas Pump" and that had me intrigued LOL. So I contacted the seller and they sent me pictures of the pump. I got 3 pictures and I could tell it was a Wayne 60 and that the motor or "guts" were shoved all the way down to the bottom of the pump. So I called them back right away and said I was coming to see and purchase the pump for the asking price. When we got there we realized that the pump was in a boarded up room inside of their old barn. So we had to take a wall down in the old barn to get the pump out of there. When the pump was all loaded up and we were ready to leave the lady asked if I wanted the top to the pump, and sure enough up in their upstairs closet was a wide body Skelly Supreme globe that came with the pump also! I have found a lot of great pumps and stuff over the years but the story and pump with this purchase is still my favorite so far!

Well that would be my favorite story. Having to take down a wall to liberate the Wayne and btw do you want the top? Great stuff and a good score Braden.

Braden you’ve been holding out on me! Never knew that story on your 60, let alone that it’s an original Skelly pump! Great story.

Awesome story for sure!

Keeping with a Wayne 60 theme and the only 2 pumps I own lol, here are mine. These sat out front of a Phillips station my dad put together in his front yard. Wish I knew the history of where he found them but unfortunately that info is lost to time. He had a bunch of pumps when I was young but sold all but these two. They meant something to him they mean something to me.

This is a hard one. My favorite pump in my collection changes. My favorite pump style is a Bennett 371/541. My very first pump was a 541 I got in 1995 (still have it) and currently have 12 in my collection. So does that make it my favorite? There was a thread in the past about "if you could have any pump" or something like that and I posted a Erie 53. A while after that I got one and it was my favorite. A little later I got a Wayne 50 did it up and filled it. It became my favorite. Close to two years ago a good friend hooked me up with a rough Tokheim 36ADC and got it together and filled up. So right now it is my favorite because I like the look, the way it came out and because it came from my good friend, but I do still like the Bennett`s and Erie 53`s.

Ok Matt you certainly have a tough choice, all nice pumps indeed. The Erie 53 is as good an art deco pump as you're going to get. It would be my favorite.......if I had one. LOL
