Nice display. I like the 54 (or maybe 55 first series)GMC.

Great thread idea Matt, you've got a fantastic collection of pumps!
Here are a couple pics of our outdoor pump island with my two Canadian Wayne 420 pumps which I restored a couple years ago now.
I did add some custom ad glass panels to the upper light hoods as I thought that empty area was just begging for some ad glass! Too bad Wayne never offered the ad glass option on these early '60's pumps. I also custom made the island light pole topped by a vintage Revere light fixture. Full disclosure here, I do bring the pumps & island light in during the winter months to keep them looking as new as possible. The big B/A sign stays out all year round of course smile





My favourite pic, when the lights come on at dusk the illuminated pump plates are also a custom touch I added.

Thanks very much Brian, the whole island project was fun to create and makes for an enjoyable spot to admire the pumps day & night.

Thought I should update my previous pics since I've added a small addition to my outdoor pump island grin Decided to build a station office behind the island this Spring, I think it sets the pumps off much better and feels a bit more vintage so to speak. The office also allows for more room to expand my collection smile Night shots are the best!

Paul, You have created a fantastic outdoor display. It is like walking back in time to the days of my youth! The truck is like the cherry on top. Kuddos to your artistry and imagination in creating such a scene.
