Co-owners (left to right) Amy-Jae Crawford, Bradford Scott, and Amy Testerman stand behind Syd’s iconic gas pump.  The original Syd’s location (formerly on W. Rosemary St.) was never a gas station it was a bar.  The gas pump was installed by artist Joe McVay and painted by muralist, Scott Nurkin.  The gas pump was refurbished in 2011 for Syd’s 10th Anniversary and moved to Syd’s new location on N. Graham Street in 2013.
