I've read numerous posts on here that mention the Gas Pump Blue Book. What exactly is it and where can I get one??

I assume you are talking about Jack's book. Click on "Bookstore" just below the ebay add above. The gas pump book will be on the top left of the page that pops up. Great book.

I bought mine 15 years ago, I believe it was from Time Passages.

I also paid for a catalog that till this day has never arrived.

Gasoline Pump Blue Book list the pumps by Maker, Model, Serial number & years made.
NOT the same as Illustrated Guide to Gas Pumps books by Jack Sim.

WE ain't the only ones.
Has anyone ever received a COMPLETE order recently?

The Blue Book is a booklet prepared by the Gasoline Pump Manufacturers Association. It was compiled at the request of the Office Of War Information. The first edition appeared 1941. A second edition appeared in 1947. The third in 1952. So far I am the only person who has ever found the 1952 edition. The second edition (which includes the first) is what you see for sale, copies were made by a number individuals.
Incidentally, this book was prepared to show how old many of the gas pumps in use, were. It was the recommendation of the U.S. Government to scrap these old pumps for the war effort.
This is what happened to all those Greek column Waynes.
