I own way too many! I don't even want to count them, because I would probably not want to find out.

So far I own at least 5 fixtures. All of them are mercury vapor, I used to have one HPS fixture but I didn't like the light source so I converted it to 175 watt Mercury Vapor.

yeah being more detailed and actually  listing them is good.....
For me....

GE M-250 (April 1970, MV) - does not have orignal ballast since it got burnt out

Cooper OVH (2004, MH) It originally had 250 watt HPS ballast that never worked...became a 175 watt MV, now installed a pulse start MH 100 watt

GE NEMA (HPS) had a MV but burnt out, got it with new MV ballast...I installed HPS)

GE M-100 (1963, MV) - everything is original for that fixture

Westinghouse Silverliner OV-15 (1968, MV) - All is original except for the refractor

Westinghouse Silverliner OV-14B (1957, MV) - has no ballast for now......

Older GE mercury vapor NEMA (1964 with a older LM gumball set refractor, MV) - everything is original for the NEMA part

McGraw Edision Unidor 175 (1976, HPS) - Everything is original for this fixture except refractor

Philips XGS103 (1986, LPS) the only fixture that accepts European power since it came from the Netherlands....Its now powered with a step up transformer......

Others that are not pictured in the Lighting Gallery is:

-Old AE 13..(the older curvier version) (1962, has a burnt out MV ballast)
-Cooper UTR TRADITIONAIRE post top (1993, HPS)
-Westinghouse Silverliner OV-12 (1962, MV) all original parts

(by the way you can find the Old AE and the OV-12 in my webpage here )

That means I have 12 streetlight fixtures.....

I used to have a Westinghouse OV-20 which got busted but I still have parts of it....it was my first streetlight....

Don't forget, I also have a 1985 Crouse Hinds traffic light....

Jace, don't forget, I gave you a Westinghouse OEM Glass for the OV-15 so it's a perfect match.

yes Jason....you gave me the lantern and I can't thank you enough for that! but what I said was it was not the orignal meaning it was not the one it had when it was newly installed.....but later I got it with a GE refractor...but now it has the RIGHT refractor...

by the way Jason..are you enjoying my photocells I gave you?? how are they working out?
