Looking for Old Skool Gas Pump... to be used for ... um ... photo shoot.

Would be awesome if it were also connected to some sort of semi-run-down filling station??

Do you know of such a place?

If it is not within a 60 minute drive of Duluth... in any direction...

-- or --

UNLESS it is on Highway 2 going West... en route to the Range... it is not useful in this context.

Help?

Thanks.

in Cloquet there is the golden token on ave C. Very small and still in use so it may not be useful, but it is very school. Per se

Up 53 there is a small farm that has all the trappings of an old gas station that they've recretead in their yard. Pristine shape. I can't remember how far it is though, it's before Eveleth.

Rich, just a coincidence but I found an old gas pump today, it is located less than a half mile from UMD, the owner want’s to get rid of it $30 or $40-bucks and it’s yours, if interested call me and I will give you the contact info. 428-4249.... [small print: some assembly might be required]

I got a 1950's gas pump on my porch. I'm going to add a 1950's filling station to my backgrounds next year. Your welcome to come up and use it if you want. Mine says 38.9/10s per gal. I sand blasted and repainted it with red auto paint, added a round globe the says "Rarin to go" with a horse rearing up. The image is on the globe and the body panels of the pump.
