Dixie Gas and Columbus are great. We went to Dixie Gas and stayed in a log cabin near Pigeon Forge for a week. The Smoky Mountains are beautiful. Same weekend as the Pigeon Forge car show. Almost bought another Chevrolet pick up.
I’m from Michigan, but love that area. I want to move there too.
I set up a big display at the Columbus show. Be sure to stop by and say hi.
I have been told a Rapid Dayton V-50 is a 5 gallon pump with a 10x20 cylinder. My what I had believed was a Rapid Dayton V-50 appears to have a 12 inch wide cylinder. Could there have been another model that was a 10 gallon model?? Or did the Rapid Dayton V-50 have a 5 gallon cylinder that was 12 inches wide??? Any help would be appreciated.
Hello, I know this will be quickly answered. Does anyone know how tall a Tokheim 39 TALL with a Capco 13.5 inch body is? I am away from home right now and am trying to find the answer out ASAP. Thank, Andrew
I picked up these signs as a group sale for a cookie cutter last month. I could use some help with the value. Both signs are 21" x 44" are very thin aluminum and share the imperial whisky green back. It should be noted that the right side of the imperial sign looks missing, but it is just a weird reflection.
That globe has NAFTA on it. The third frame has a Texaco/Mobil sign that has been subject of discussion of what it (NAFTA) meant. I am not aware that there was a conclusion. Can anyone tell me what that meant back in the day? Looks like there were some nice pumps for sale.
Hey Jim, You better be prepared for your next pump because when you get this one fixed up you'll be hooked and looking for your next project. In the hobby we call these the "art deco globe holder". Original is the best way to go (by the way I don't have any spares right now). They are not impossible to find but can be a bit pricey. Because of the way the original is made it takes a rather large hole to be cut. When you get ready to make the cut I'd be happy to send you a template made from an original top. You don't really need one but it might make you feel better before you start cutting. Remember what they say... measure twice, cut once...lol. Enjoy your pump, Tom.
Dang Tom, I didn't know you had a template? When I cut out the top on the Wayne 60 that we sent to Gustavus Drey Alaska, I free handed it. Cut a little, then check fit, then cut a little bit more! Would have been nice to have some help, LOL! Paul www.severngaspumps.com
The signs that we sold were in the middle to higher price range. I had a nice, un-restored pedestal air meter asking $1450. and had no interest at all? Sold some high end pumps and bought some good stuff too. It was a great show for us. We did very well on the day it poured all day long. Sales were brisk as a lot of vendors refused to open for fear of water? Paul www.severngaspumps.com
I showed the pump to my wife the other night. She though it was neat, so I told her how good it was going to look in the living room (as it sits). She said if I went and picked up the new couch I could move the pump in tonight, LOL
