Two friends and some past gas

Life changes quickly and there could come a time when even a modern gas pump may become a thing of the past. But thankfully Eloi Parizeau and his friend Martin Chauvette teamed up to preserve a blast from the past in LEGO.They’ve built this very retro gas pump in striking red and yellow. The replica stands twenty six inches high and is constructed from over 4000 pieces. I particularly like the golden shell with wings emblem and the Captain America shield as a centralized emblem on the light face up top. Eloi tells us this isn’t a theme he would normally build for but as a car enthusiast and a lover of all things retro, I’m pretty glad they did.
