Big Old Gas Pump

On a road trip going through the many small towns along Route 6, we saw the beautiful pump, with Roadside America's direction, and we were entirely blown away by the sheer size of it! It is absolutely immense in height. Honestly (no offense...) the photos on your website didn't quite do the pump justice!

Giant Gas Pump

We were driving down Route 6 when we spotted this oversized gas pump at the B&S Convenience Store between Troy and Sylvania. It matched the vintage gas pumps near the entrance to the store.

[Jason Wait, 01/10/2016]

The gas pump has been there longer than the current gas station owner. The gas station itself dates back to at least the 1940s.
