Brings back memories - when I visited Newport Beach in 1983 I remember driving up the coast road to the Queen Mary and passing loads of nodding donkeys.

I remember these pumps, too. You used to find them in odd places, like parking lots in malls. Wherever there's oil!

I just did a post about the oil platforms and my family's history with oil. I remember watching the pumps go up and down when I was a kid. I always thought it would be fun to ride one like a horse. - Margy
