When I first seen it, it wasn't finished, hes put a lot of time and thought in this display, everything in its place, a lot of sleepless nights thinking , thats what he does , if your ever in the north west and you want to see the best displayed collection of associated collectables , give my friend Craig a shout , and most of the time he will invite you to see and come by. thanks my friend for showing your collection as private as you are, your the best. injoy gang . this is for you oldtoydoc.

Craig..... How could it be any nicer.... incredible.
Don't be surprised if one day you find an oversized baby basket on your front doorstep with dodo or hubba in it with note that says... please adopt...... on second thought it might be easier to find a basket for Dwaine to fit into.

Craig, verrrrrrrrry Nice! I have to admire the guys like you that have talent putting together a collection! hey, I'd have trouble just figuring out what color to paint the walls let alone visualizing the station design. I also admire the fact that you were able to stick with just one brand. There's no way I could have ever done that. I like it all, and don't have any self control when it comes to collecting. Great display, Looking forward to visiting some day!

Hey Dwaine.. A bunch of us are going over to Craig's tomorrow morning (Sunday) .. I've gotta go to Costco today and get a case of "Depends" and some drool buckets so we don't soil his carpet.

Wow! This is an inspiration. Wonderful stuff displayed in a creative and super appropriate way. To those of us who have some stuff that is not nicely displayed (me), this is a wake up call to get it going and put your dream together. And Craig is so great about having people over.

Thanks, Craig!

Thanks to all of you for your kind coments. I do enjoy this hobby or as my wife would say, I am obsessed with this hobby. Or as you guys all know I have the sickness. Anyway regarding some of your coments and questions. The station and surrounding area's all are just painted to look like tile and brick. Some of the other parts I will send pictures to Dwaine for posting next week. I love to show what we have done with the gas collection to anybody who wants to see it. What would be the purpose of collecting memorabilia if you didn't show it to anybody to enjoy. I have noticed that most people who don't collect gas stuff still enjoy it from a memories stand point, but Gas Guys enjoy it for that reason and also the true love of each piece. My reluctance to show my collection in the past, has been because I don't want to appear as a show off. I hope I never come across that way. I just want to share the finished product with the rest of those who appreciate it.

Thanks again
Craig

Awesome display... where is it at? It looks like in the house or is it in the garage. If you could get away with that in the house than you are the man!

Awesome is an understatement!!! We NW Boys were over at Craig's this morning.. Thanks Craig.. you are a very gracious host. Since I had been there before, I volunteered to blot up the drool from the carpet as Tim Hansen, Hubba, Steve Snow, Vern, and I toured Craig's collection displayed beautifully. I took pic's and will share as soon as I figure out how..

Craig is a super nice guy and his collection and display of it is awesome. Here is a peek.



In my excitement for the day ..I rushed out of the house and forgot my drool bucket , so I had to cup my hands.

From left to right: Vern, Steve Snow, Tim Hanson(TJHVintage), Frank Sargent (Local Frank) The Host: Craig, and me the Fatboy himself Hubba Hubba.


Words cant accurately describe the awesomeness of the way Craig displays his wonderful collection. A huge Thanks to him for giving us the tour of his Garages and rec room. It is burned in my thoughts fondly and gives me new goals in the way I can display my modest collection.
