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

Being a pump guy, my favorite topic is The pump of the month. Thanks Braden for doing this every month. As my wife and I travel the country picking up pumps for our collection, we have met so many collectors and have so many wonderful stories. If a person we bought a gas pump from collected Texaco, Sinclair, Shell, Polly etc., we restore that pump in his honor or if they happen to pass away, we restore it in their memory. So, every pump we have, has it’s own unique story. As the month goes on, I will share some of our stories. This is what makes collecting for us, a great and fun hobby.

Yes it is. Thank you. I have all the other corner pieces, but took them off to move it years ago. Old picture I found. Kinda enjoying the old history pictures.

And here is the globe as found.

This is my favorite pump. My wife's uncle was selling his farm and he said he had a pump he wanted to sell. I knew he had a Wayne 70 and my wife talked about a visible pump that used to be on the farm. When we got there I made a deal for the 70. I asked about the visible so we went out to the scrap pile and I found a few parts for a Wayne 515. I was about to leave and he said he had one more pump in the scrap pile. We went out to another scrap pile and found this pump. A week later every piece of metal on the farm was scrapped. This pump is special because my wife's grand father used it when he first had this farm. Richard

I guess if I'm FORCED to pick my favorite and I have plenty I will have to go with my Rush VC. Rush's were made here in my home state so that adds to the attraction not to mention that this is the only known survivor in its original condition, not the only known VC however, I know of 6 total.

I am an art deco fan so these three are candidates.
No story to tell on the acquisitions..they were all bought. The 541 would be my favorite.

I always wanted a Wayne 492 Roman and never thought I would have one. Came across this one when a friend had access to it. We made a deal and it followed me home. It was mine until my wife claimed it and said it was hers!

This is my favorite. I always wanted an Erie 70/71, and I always wanted a clockface. I was able to kill both with 1 pump in this Erie 80. Its also not a common pump in the clock version. Thanks to 59Fairlane for my 2 favorite pumps he was able to find, This Erie 80 and a Bennett 371...

I think my 276 might just be my favorite. I brought it back from the dead, and I know the pumps history. I smile when I look at it in my backyard.
