Frankie,
I will give you five wayne 60's for Calvin ! Or.... at least let me keep him for a few weeks, I bet I can send him home so spoiled that his mom can't stand him. I've been pretty successful doing that with my grandson.
Seriously he is a really cute little pumper.
Probably looks like his mom.
Larry

Frankie:

Damm - you get all the luck! I really want an A-38, but just can't seem to find one locally. Shipping on top of the price on e-bay just doesn't seem to be a good deal to me. Oh well - I'll get me one sooner or later. Just gotta keep my eyes peeled.

Later . . .

Jim

Don't want to tell any one what to do, so I'll make a suggestion ,always keep a piece of ply wood in the back of you trucks , you sure crease the sheet metal when you teeter that heavy pump on the tail gate, just a 2x2 is good, 2x6 is better you can push the pump in with out messing up the sight glass or the side of the pump with the longer piece.

I'm a novice compared to most of you guys, but several of my aquisitions are interesting. I told a construction buddy of mine I was looking for an old gas pump. 2 days later there's a Wayne 500 sitting in the middle of my driveway. I can't even get my car past it. His idea of fun!

About a year later, we go clean out an old semi trailer he wants to scrap. Inside is an old tombstone, a set of 392 Hemi heads, and a M&S 80! He takes the tombstone and the heads, I take the pump.

Finally, last summer my dad told me about an old dump near their cottage that was abandoned in the '50's. I go there, hoping to find some old bottles. I spot what appears to be an old water heater, roll it over and just about die when I see the old Wayne script. It's a model 480 in pretty rough shape. Well it's on state land so I ask the DNR if I can have it. They tell me I can have anything there if it helps clean up the area. It's 20 feet down a steep hill and it take a LOT of effort to get the thing out. We had to tie rope to the hitch of a pickup and drag it up the hill. It's going to get a cosmetic resto as the inside are pretty much shot. But hey, it HAD to be saved!
