Recently I visiting the Motte Brothers car museum in Menifee, California, where I saw an antique gas pump. I felt this was something that was needed in my garage.

Amazing detail! It fits so well with your models. All top notch, truly fine work.

I am not pushing Texaco as a product but this was one of the first signs I came across on my web search. I would rather had Sunoco, as that was a company I worked for as a summer job during my college years. Thanks for your comments.

Ed, What a top job on the old petrol pump; it goes extremely well with the old cars & hot rods. Top marks!

Great job. Where did you get the decals? I’m guessing that the Texaco logos are on decals.

I captured an image from Google search and printed it as a photo. I don’t think Texaco would mind a little free advertisement.

A really nice addition to continue with the nostalgic theme. Im sure those pieces brought back many memories and events in your life, which in turn made them fun projects to build.
Very nice work.
