Sometimes it's not all that bad paying the extra money locally. When compared to the added expenses of traveling, meals and time. Comfort and convenience usually comes at a price.

DB did you trade your Dodge Ram in on a RamCharger? Here's DB putting 50,000 miles of wear on his truck in less then 4 minutes.

Your correct Dave, $1500 in Fuel + Motel $$$ & 7-10 days on the road will buy a NICE pump close to home or have 1 shipped in.
At least Rob does return home w/ a Full Trailer Load @ 50 mph!
Years ago I passed Jack Mendenhall doing 35mph on the freeway w/ a Full load of stuff!

Hey Jeff, when I get in the rare mood to sell a pump, you will be the first person I call.

I was outside at Mason Dixon when the truck pulled in with the Wayne 60 & 70 on it, they sold in less than 45 seconds. Brady

Thanks Brady. I saw those pumps show up. By the time I got outside, it was too late.

My father, brother and I usually bring 30 to 40 pumps to Iowa gas each year by ourselves not counting all the other vendors so there are plenty to pick from at IG. I also believe they are priced right as not many go back home each year.


Drive with Care and Buy Sinclair!! I buy Sinclair globes, signs, cans, ect.

JeffS--About two months before Iowa Gas, guys start announcing what they are bringing. That is the time to pick your pumps especially the guys like you who are heading West since you live in the East. That way, you don't have to worry about being in Des Moines for the show.

Great Burn out but check out my buddy Justin York with the Double Burn Out. He is one of my good friends from High School back here in Maine and he lets it rip all the way around!
