Hi everyone,

Coming from a lifetime of automotive related exposure (my father ran a Texaco station for 26 years)I've always had an interest in all things Petroliana. Due to some significant life changes recently (aquired more space in the form of an old service station from the sixties)I recently started collecting gas pumps, now up to 3 including my Erie 753 and will be trying to refurbish some additional ones for display out front. Starting on some big shop renos in October so I want to included a before pic and will be sure to send in the after pic once complete. Look forward to the shop talk and hope to get some of my many pump related questions answered!
Mike

Thanks Jim, I've added the closest I had to a full view. I'll have to pull out the camera again.

Welcome, Mike!
You've come to the right place. We'll enjoy seeing your station & stuff. And we'll try to help answer your questions. Lots of us dream about having an old gas station building to display our collection in a realistic retro setting. cool
