Come and visit the Lakeside Museum get to see both restored and original.
We bought this cute Hayes Visible pump last year on our trip to Oregon.. It was wired together and lacked the glass cylinder but otherwise a nice pump. We found a cylinder at the Hershey Swap Meet and finally put it together to display at the Lakeside Storage free Museum.
We never intended on winding up with the Biggest Pole Sign Collection in the World and it was an accident brought on by OCD Sign Collecting.
We might be the Biggest, meaning we have more, but we’re not even close to having the best signs, as we have several friends with much better quality signs than we have.
We’re just Bottom Dwellers in the country having fun that got carried away. The Roman Column gas pump was a thriller to find.
Our Museum Story
In the beginning…
Who is the “real” Picker?
We bought this Carbon Fiber racing model P-51 mustang from the Estate of a war hero that had 3 Purple Hearts, as well as a bronze and silver Stars for bravery.
The P-51 was the finest, fastest and most advanced fighter plane ever built and with its 1680 hp Merlin engine, made by Rolls Royce, it was the fastest plane in WWII. It outgunned and out flew any of its rivals and dramatically helped turn the war in the Allies favor.
We were very fortunate to have this plane offered to the Lakeside Storage Museum by the wife of its owner after he died an unexpected death in 2014.
The famous Flying Tiger shark mouth, as well as the red tail paint, were added by us to remind us of many of our heroes that have kept America and the world free from tyrants. God Bless America!
