Mendenhall's Museum of Gas Pumps and Petroliana

Very large collection of gas pumps, metal signs, and a history of the salt flats racers. Open by appointment, okay for photos.

[David Miller, 03/03/2014]

A high wall surrounding the residential street property prevents in-person glimpses of the collection without an appointment.
