I'm not sure if the Vincent Van Gas pump is still at the previously listed location. It appears to have moved into the Lincoln Highway Experience Museum in Latrobe.

The pump previously stood outside an old gas station in Schellsburg. It was moved into the museum in late 2019 (apparently repainted/restored).

Vincent Van Gas

An old gas pump has been painted by Alan Byrne to resemble Van Gogh's "Starry Night," with Vincent himself holding the nozzle at the end of the hose. Stands in front of the Lincoln Highway Auto Center. Vincent's starting to look a little ragged; he needs a touch-up.
