My dad, brother and nephew made a road trip once from Ohio to Colorado to get a Sinclair sign. They stopped by Whiteman AFB in Missouri on the way to pick me up. We went the rest of the way and ended up buying several more items. Saw three collections that trip, met some good people. I still have a sign I got that time. Some good memories. We also stopped in Sinclair Wyoming on the way out to see the Sinclair refinery.

Drove 8 hours from Michigan to Upper Wisconsin to pick-up a pump. When I got there the pump was gone, sold to another for $150.00 more than what he quoted me. Half way back home stopped in a small town and bought a visible, loading the pump the guy helping lost grip and the pump fell on my foot, broke it. Limped for a while but not anymore. What a deal.

1400 miles Oregon to South Dakota. Back before shipping pumps was as easy as it is now. Fun trip and picked up some great pumps.

drove 1300+ miles from Templeton MA to Memphis TN to deliver a few neon signs for $600. Did it for the road trip not the money, zig zagged our way back and found a few goodies along the way. This was in the early 90's when you found things as you went, No contacts via facebook ahead of time.

2,546 km or 1,591 miles for the metrically challenged. Calgary to Santa Paula, one way, to get a pump and meet Dick Bennett. Came home with a beater pump and a few DB stories. Well worth the trip.
Stellar neon btw Jim!

2707 Miles one way from Armstrong BC to Harvey's Lake PA for these 2 beauties. No detours and just one other stop in Clear Lake Iowa, just over 5400 miles in 6 days by myself.

I drove From Chicago To McAllen Tx. for a Wayne Gas pump in 1985.
The pump was basically free,but the 3 day trip sure wasn't.
1500 miles 1 way...Oh to be that young & adventurous again.

drove 1400 miles round trip for an A38 once, got there and one side was bashed in. definitely not worth it!

driving 1000 miles round trip tomorrow to buy a sign that I'm most likely paying too much for! LOL

never let the mileage be the reason for not buying an item (or at least thats what I always tell myself)
