Default Gas Stations

When gas stations really were gas stations.
Off I-71 in Wilmington Ohio some 46 years ago.

Those old stations always had a muscle car of some type sitting on the lot or in one of the bays. The one across the street from my elementary school had an SS454 Chevelle in Cranberry Red with black stripes on their lot for years. That car probably cemented my love of muscle cars as I drooled over it daily and daydreamed when I should have been doing school work.

I worked for Sohio at one time and loved it, pump key in hand and a wad of cash in my pocket. Full service and manual credit card machine at the island. Sundays were a 11 hour shift all by yourself....and the Camaro was always parked out front.

Here's a couple of old photos from 1968 of a newly opened Hancock station in Sacramento where my older brothers worked. Bob is in the white shirt behind the pump &amp; Larry is dressed up as the Hancock Rooster bringing in the new customers. I'm the kid in the striped shirt in the background with Bob. I remember they were giving away Hot Wheels cars with fill-ups and somehow I ended up with a few of them. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/smile.gif[/img]

HOLY SMOKES!...Grant,do you mind if I share your 1st photo with another group?
That's a Wayne 511-E blender pump on the far left.Everyone always assumes these were Sunoco specific,but they have been known to been sold to other oil companies as well.Not only is yours a HANCOCK brand,but it has the seldom seen &quot;Motor Match&quot; chart on top too.
