A Thank You letter from Bob Krist

 

Time has come; the decision to retire is made. So here we go! "Auction, Auction" over 60 pumps to be "Sold, Sold" June 22nd and 23rd, 2018

To begin, I would like to express my gratitude and indebtedness to the man who guided me to where I am today. That man is Rob Myers from RM Auctions. Rob is a giant in the field and has been incredibly successful.

A lot of people have been involved with bringing our customers the very finest products available. We could not have accomplished what we have without them. We extend a special thanks to the auctioneers for this sale for their long time support and encouragement. Don Reinhart, Phil Faulkner, Steve Parr, Chris Boyle and their great staffs...you’re the best.

So to all my staff, customers, clients, family and friends over the past 30 years... we offer the warmest Thanks. Thanks for everything, and especially for all the FUN!!!

I've long maintained that one of the best benefits of being a restorer and collector is meeting other collectors. If you’re interested in the field of petroliana and memorabilia collecting, you'll want to attend this auction. There will be something here for everyone and amazing people to meet.

For the past year we have been working full steam on pump restorations as well as other items for this auction. All have one thing in common. Besides being great pieces in their own right, they have been all completed by a master craftsman. An experienced collector will immediately recognize the quality that is apparent even in the photos.

If you’re new to the field of collecting you must keep in mind that pump restoration, just like classic auto restoration, is a true art form. You may find many claiming to "do pumps" but there are just a few real restoration artists that work at this full time as I did.

Over 25 years I've collected many extremely rare pumps. Many of these have remained buried for years in my shop. Now they are fully restored to their original glory. You will not be disappointed with the number and quality of the pumps in this sale. You may never see this many rare pieces all under one roof again.

We will also have many common 40's and 1950's pumps. I have put together an amazing collection of over 20 Red Indian gasoline pumps and accessories from as early as 1925.

Over the years of collecting and picking we have accumulated a lot of inventory. We will be empting our barn of treasures, projects we never got to or thought of. These items will be sold in Ring 2 outside in the parking lot Friday. Part 2 and final sale coming this fall.

As an added thank you to our customers for your support and business over the years, I’m showing my appreciation with a low buyer’s premium of only 5%. The buyer’s premium goes towards the fees and expenses for extra staff and Auctioneers. Thank you for your continued support over our many years of business. From a collector and master restorer, I hope to see you at the retirement sale. It promises to be a most unique event........
