Okay, I turn 80 this week. I started collecting in 1970 via my neighbor farmer throwing away a very nice May West 5 gallon pump with perfect blue tinted cylinder. Painted it up and then displayed it at a local tractor/engine show. That's all that it took to get into the hobby without the aid of internet, books, and specialty petroleum shows. Have always done it as a hobby and never a business. Have met some of the nicest people on this site & other shows. Facebook to me is a big disappointment but I keep up with it. I gave up restoring pumps about 4 years ago until a good friend talked me into doing two pumps for him this winter! Memories and busted knuckles came back to me in a hurry!
