Hello Everyone! Thanks to my brother Konnor for helping me out last month... I have been very busy! This month the pump of the month is the Wayne Roman Column or Greek Column gas pump! These pumps have a sweet art deco design... literally look like a greek column from Greece. These are very desirable pumps. It is definitely one on my bucketlist!!

-Wayne 490: 1923-24. Original cost was $169. Greek Column, 10 gallon with a different top than the others.
-Wayne 491: 1923, $169 cost. 10 gallon air operated and hand operated versions.
-Wayne 491-F: 5 gallon version of the 491.
-Wayne 492: 1923. $215 cost originally. Hand crank.
-Wayne 492-F was a 5 gallon version of the 492.

I hope everyone can share their information and pictures about these awesome pumps! Here's to a great July!

Thanks again Braden for keeping this going . I am very fortunate to have 3 of the 492s one has been perfectly restored by my friend the late Kent Swensen , the other 2 have been together since the 1920s and were pulled out of a garage 30 years ago in a small town in south western Utah . They are both complete and in excellent condition . Happy 4th to everyone . Peter

I shot this Roman in white pearl and hand pinstriped in gold. The pearl pops
when you have a light on it! Anybody have the cylinder lock that is
missing for sale??

It is amazing the amount of prep time and effort it takes on a Roman to get all
the defects out before you paint due to all the detail in the fluted column and castings!!
