Great Old Pics - Fri Jan 28 2011 02:45 AM

I'm a member of the HAMB and they have a thread that is called Vintage shots from days gone by! A few pics are oil and gas related. You can loose many hours looking at all the pics. It has over 2.7 million views. Here's a few pics. If these pics have been posted before I'm truly sorry.

The funky Phillips 66 station on the first page of this forum(not HAMB) was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

That Tydol blimp rocks. How long did it take to paint that monstrosity?

The Fire Chief Ethyl sign. Anyone have a closer pic of it?
it looks like part sign part decal in the pic.

Guido,

Thanks for sharing!

What is that vehicle in your first pic?

Does the second pic mean that the station was accepting Austrailian pounds and Americal dollars? Was it just during that era? I am assuming that a station like that would now just accept Austrailian dollars.

BTW Austrailian currency is beautiful! Tho I guess any currency if you have enough of it is beautiful... : )

Try to find a Pegasus like that. Flat and curved!
Posted By: DWSheffer

Re: Great Old Pics - Fri Mar 11 2011 12:23 PM

Can anyone "more from the era smile " tell my why the car in the Mobil station pic has a full tarp or covering on it? That's one heck of a stone guard, lol.
I think the Hillsdale Mobil station had the same "curved" Pegasus on it from the one pic I've been able to find of it. You can barely see the front end in my photo, but it looks like it curved as well. Do you think they took the flat version with back bracket mounts, and since the curve is so slight on the building that they were just able to mount them and it didn't crack the porcelain? I would guess with a larger sign there is a bit of bend in the sign due to the size? I've never seen a curved one but I haven't seen it all.

Re: Great Old Pics - Fri Mar 11 2011 01:12 PM

Darin, mostlikely, it was a "Test - Mule " from Detroit . Back in the Day, General Motors and Ford and too many times Chrysler would wrap a car in canvas so as to discuise the Sheet metal from the competition . I remember here in Richmond Va. , Chrysler had a couple of Test - Mules here .I think it was around 1961. I had somewhat of an inside as I knew the owners of both a Chevrolet dealership and a Plymouth dealer too. Ed Shaver

They still do that today, even at their own test tracks.

Re: Great Old Pics - Fri Mar 11 2011 10:55 PM

As a driver, it is one thing to see photos of a "test mule" on a test track, owned by a Major Car Company. But can you imagine driving down the highway and either being passed or passing a car all draped in canvas or cloth? (and being startled to the point of almost losing control) The curiosity of what is/was underneath the tarp would drive me crazy,............... okay crazier.

Posted By: fast66

Re: Great Old Pics - Mon Mar 14 2011 02:08 PM

IMO it is a German brand (could have sold elseware I suppose), I have a link to a gas pump site in Germany and the DEA is spelled out Deutche Erdöl AG, wich means something like "German Earth Oil LTD".
Please check www.alte-tanksaeulen.de and you will find many nice pictures of Gilbarco-Schwelm pumps restored to DEA brand - and also lots of other nice pumps :-)

Would they really have pulled a prop plane that close to the gas pump? I once oversaw a helicoptor being loaded with gas and the truck came to it and the hose was verrrrrry long.

Or is that a decommissioned plane turned into a gas stations--of course Nicole--D'oh!

The second picture. The 41 Chevy hotrod that everybody is looking at. Leaded in deck lid, wingtips on the bumper, lowered rear and raised front. Typical 50's teenage hotrod. Bin there done that. Mitch

I love the stop light in that pic. You always see that type in the Bugs Bunny cartoons!

A little info on it... designed by W.C. James, who was head of the special effects department at Twentieth Century Pictures Studio. The truck was illuminated with 600 feet of neon tubing. Blue neon was used for the outline and side lettering. Gold neon for the radiator shell. Red neon for the cab lettering and the Red Lion and "Roar ..." slogan at the rear. Fifteen thousand volts was used to light it. Power was created by four generators mounted on the left side of the engine and driven from the fan belt.

I have not seen a globe with the mule. Another one to hope for though! The same company also used a logo with the character "Hercules", the strong man.It pictures him from the shoulders up holding a wooden club.

1) look like they care about you as a customer
2) speak english
3) take pride in their work

Dont be so hasty, just like the camera adds 20-30 lbs; it also adds 20-30 layers of grime to buildings AND 100-150 grease/oil spots on driveways. Makes sense to me, I'm sure the restroom floors are clean enough to eat off of. wink

It makes me a little melancholy to think of "those days" and the road trips. My first roadie was when I was in my teens (mid 1980's), my dad HATED driving, so no road trips when I was a kid. :'( I wear my vehicles out with my kids these days, we drive A LOT!!!

From Richmond Virginia :


Egglestons Garage shot 1989 . This was a Texaco dealer origionally. It was built sometime in 1934.


Built as The Harvey System in 1930, this outstanding piece of Greek revival is stil at Moore and West Broad street


I shot this with a 1944 Agfa 120 X 120 on Kodak Verichrome back in 1985 IOt was at one time a Socony/ Mobil at Allison and the 2300 blk of Cary street . It was razed in 1999.


Origionally, a Ford tractor dealer , gasoline was sold under the 1st floor areas. They were a Richfield dealer until becomming Capital garage in the late seventies . They then sold Phillips/ Little oil products . In 2000, Capital Garage became capital Garage apartments .

The station in the 1985 photo on Cary Street was originally the Gold Star Service Station, selling Amoco products. I have several mid-1930s photos, but don't know how to upload them.

Looks like the canopy on the poor Texaco station above was settling a little bit! Looks to be built on a little hill. Neat station though.
I like those old tire covers advertising the brands. Does anyone have any in thier collections? I would guess they are a scarce item with cross over appeal to car collectors.

Where was the picture taken with the blown out globe on the visible pump? Texas City? Looks like an explosion aftermath.

The last one had me going with the guy on the hood cleaning the windshield. Seriously? On the hood? Then I looked closer and realized who was working on the car.

KS 82 GT,
If you haven't watched that Stooge short, you should! I've watched the beginning of that one over and over looking at the great Mobil advertising all over the place! I crack up every time I see it....SUPER SERVICE!
"Violent is the Word for Curly Part 1 (1938)(in color)" is what it is under in my favorites on Youtube.
Take a look!

Man, that's a cool place - is the tree still there or was it chopped?
Posted By: GILMORE

Re: Great Old Pics - Tue May 24 2011 02:54 AM

Unfortunately, the tree is no longer there. Here's the history page on the restaurant's website...

http://www.lechene.com/about/history

Quote:
As an eye-catching feature, they incorporated the large oak tree that used to shade the old refreshment stand into the front stone wall of the new building. It stood majestically between the garage on the right, and the new cafe on the left. A drinking fountain was installed at the base of this signature oak tree. Unfortunately, this oak was damaged by a truck in the 1960’s and did not survive. It remained standing as a dead trunk until the end of 1980, when the last remnants were finally removed.

What brand is that visible pump with the diamond shape next to the Gilmore?
Posted By: GILMORE

Re: Great Old Pics - Tue May 24 2011 05:42 PM

Both are Gilmore- the first/closest one is Blu-Green and the next one with the "Roar with Gilmore" globe is most likely Red Lion. Is that what you were asking, Craig?
Posted By: Dick Bennett

Re: Great Old Pics - Tue May 24 2011 11:38 PM

Right to Left; Blu-Green, Roar, Economy, Union & maybe BEACON.

There are only three pumps though ! The Gilmore on the left side and the one next to it is the one I am referring to.

Sinclair "Aircraft" was a non-ethyl premium grade automotive fuel. Although it was not sold at all stations, most Sinclair stations offered this product. Pump ID was by decal only, with several designs of one piece globes and an extremely rare three-piece glass globe known.

A measured amount was put in the Ford inline engine mounted on a stand for everyone to see. Yeah, ay get one guess who always semed to win an it betta be right !!!!!!

Dick,
I grew up with the term"Gunny Sack".You don't hear it used much anymore.The newer generation don't know what you are talking about.I remeber the desert water bags and of course the auto air conditioner which attached to the window of the car.My dad idenitified such as "California People".We still call em THE GOOD OLE DAYS

I noticed in the footnotes in DB's link the reference to swamp coolers. When I first saw one of these on a car at an auto show several years ago, I was told it was a swamp water cooler. When it ran out of water, you could stop anywhere and refill it with- well- water from anywhere!
Supposedly one of the first in the car air conditioners had a pan for ice in which an internal fan blew air over it.

Gas 22 cents? What was that, the thirties? That must have been a lot of money then. I remember either the late 60's or the early 70's it being 35 cents a gallon. Or mabybe I'm so old my memory is just going... frown
Posted By: r49th

Re: Great Old Pics - Sat Oct 08 2011 10:42 PM

You could still buy gas for under 25 cents a gallon through the late sixties. There was still what they called gas wars and a lot of promotions. ( buy 8 gallons of gas get a free glass). Oh yeah, that was back when there was still attendants. I did that for a few months after high school and made 95 cents an hour.
By the mid seventies gas started climbing upwards, stamps started to disappear and you would have thought it was a national disaster when 50 cents a gallon showed up on the pump.

Re: Great Old Pics - Sat Oct 08 2011 10:53 PM

I remember in 1974 when gas went to 50 cents a gallon and I wondered how us working people where going to make it! Then the gas lines began and the oil embargo.We only thought we were in troubled times then!

Re: Great Old Pics - Sun Oct 09 2011 01:53 AM

I remember when I was a kid (probably 1968 or so) my dad driving all over town looking for a station that still sold gas for under 30c in protest because he was ticked the price was going up. In 1979 I said I was going to sell my Camaro big block if gas hit 75c, and we all know what happened that year.

Re: Great Old Pics - Sun Oct 09 2011 05:03 PM

In 1970 you could still get gas for 25.9 in Spokane at the "no name" station on 2nd and Brown, but your car didn't run too well after you filled up.
Posted By: oilmanpat

Re: Great Old Pics - Sun Oct 09 2011 10:54 PM

Started drivin in 72. There was a gas war going on here and it got down to25.9 for about 1 week.
Posted By: Nicole

Re: Great Old Pics - Mon Oct 10 2011 01:14 PM

So I'm guessing that pic with the visibles and the handwritten sign for gas 22 cents would have been for 5 or 10 gallons--not the price per gallon...

Re: Great Old Pics - Tue Oct 11 2011 06:41 AM

No Nicole, the price would have been 22 cents per gallon. Visables were commonly used up into the fifties. The last visable used here in Cheyenne was still in use during the sixties. When I worked in the gas station in 1954-55 gasoine was 31.9 for regular and 33.9 for ethyl. The only time gas dropped below that was when they had gas wars between stations. The companies like Gulf or Standard would temporarely drop the prices to bring in customers. Mitch

There was some pictures of the giant Goodyear tire in an article in Hemmings Classic Cars a few months ago. Interesting to see a different picture pop up here.

This is by far my favorite thread of all the message boards that I'm on. Thanks to everyone that has contributed to it.

I was excited to see that in this photo of the wagon I have in my collection one of the lamps made by Charles Pratt N.Y. who specialized in whale oil and kerosene lamps. According to wikipedia Mr Pratt founded Astral Oil Works that later sold out to John Rockefeller's Standard Oil CO in 1874. Photo is on page 25 posted by GILMORE.

Re: Great Old Pics - Mon Nov 07 2011 07:28 PM

On the Pure/US Tires pic in Ames, IA. I was up that way traveling through this weekend. If I would have seen that picture I would have checked out the intersection to see if it was still there, although looking at Google Maps leaves to to believe that it's just as well that I didn't. I believe this to be the corner of Duff and Lincoln Way, and if so, although there's an Amoco and a BP station at that intersection, this particular building is gone. The Amoco is of their 60's/70's archetecture, so I guess that's one plus.

Curiosity got the best of me and I had to look it up on a perpetual calendar. The Olds in the background is a 55-57 model, so I started looking for Friday, April 7 starting in 1955. The Grand Opening picture is from 1961.

Hey 1937 GMC - where did you ever find that old pic of the Jordan Valley Tourist Camp? That's the small town where I live here in Southern Ontario. That business is still running today, but unfortunately the rusty gold next to it (pump, lollipop and oil bottle rack) are all gone, because I have been around there a million times!

Did you notice the pump island station lighters at the Texaco station. I haven't seen them like that before with the porcelain lights mounted approximately 6-8 feet from the center post. The globe mounted at the top of the post is awesome. I think I'll have to do that to one of my island displays.

Re: Great Old Pics - Sun Feb 26 2012 11:59 PM

All of these are stations that were in Antioch,or close by towns.i have been to many,although most are no longer standing.

This one I'm not sure of,but looks like a curbpump on the left

[/URL]

Sinclair was right in town

This one was only a block away,no longer standing

Used to be about two miles away. Again no longer standing

This last one was not a station,but a country club.in the mid eighties it was converted into a private residence.i know,cause I put the hvac in it.the guy who remodeled it no longer owns it,but became a great friend .i still stop by and have an occasional " manhattan" with him.
Hope you enjoyed them. Ps Scott and Wayne may be interested in the globes at that Sinclair.

Stuckey's!

I don't know which is neater to see: the Stuckey's or the Corvair van.

I think my Dad must've hated Stuckey's when we traveled. My brothers and I would always bug him to stop and when we ever did it was a good half hour of us bugging him or Mom for the crappy plastic trinkets they had for sale when we could be making time. Guess my '60's childhood shows.

Thinking about it, this and a couple of other chains were the forerunners of today's convenience stores.

The Oakdale Inn, showcaseing the gas station next to it, looks to be one of the early motels (geared towards motorists, not train travelers). Cool!

Great motel advertising...

Yes Yes! I really never noticed how they would sometimes just put those end cap islands next to the visible pumps. That way the pump would sit on the ground and then the island would still protect it. I learn alot of little tidbits from these great pictures.

Posted By: Maps for the memories

Re: Great Old Pics - Thu Mar 29 2012 12:39 PM

Nicole, I'd be surprised if the same company made both. Milk cans originally had a thick tin plating, because most metals give a terrible taste to milk, and were high-grade stainless steel later on. I agree, though, the Richfield cans do look like the cream cans of the Midwest.
The gas cans of the era I see in area flea markets appear to be galvanized.

great picture of a texaco gas station in france, you can see how everything was displayed for promoting texaco

Posted By: Nicole

Re: Great Old Pics - Mon Apr 16 2012 03:38 PM

My french is not great but does 'essence de puissence' have a double meaning here? I know essence by itself can mean gasoline, but it also means as we know it in english, as the innate nature or meaning of something.

So is it the 'essence of power' or the 'gasoline of power' or both? If both, very sophisticated advertisement.
Posted By: Nucky

Re: Great Old Pics - Mon Apr 16 2012 04:16 PM

Both works for it, but I think it could be more "gasoline of power"

by the way, I have the flange sign on the left, I love seeing the signs I have on original locations were they were used for.

The same guy painting the ads painted the gas pump. How often would he have to paint that do you think? Also does it look like most of the ads are painted on the back of some kind of metal tray? Maybe like some of the lollipop signs we see on OLDGAS he's painted over other porcelain signs...

Jus' wondering.

It looks like it pivots, sorta like a 5th wheel set up. You can barely notice the void in behind the rear wheels of the power unit. It looks like a truck & trailer set up with tightly fitting wind deflectors.

DDT would kill almost anything.
Even small animals in concentrated enough amounts.
Got into water supplies, ingested by fish and would kill the Bald Eagles eating them.
Hence it was outlawed.

Re: Great Old Pics - Sun May 06 2012 01:56 PM

Thanks Gaspedlar,

Interesting article. I was familiar with DDT, but was wondering what the labling would be. Was it an all purpose use? Was wondering what the large type that's not quite legible--what would the manufacturers put down to catch the attention of the consumer? Touted for house and garden?

BTW DDT was very effective and eliminated bedbugs in the U.S. and would have been dusted on mattresses.

Dr Seuss used to do the advertising for FLIT, pre-WWII I believe. Several of his characters in his books were seen there first (or in his political cartoons).

I like the old S&H sign hanging on the last pic in 1937 GMC's post.

Also, it's amazing how many Green Stamp-type programs there were during their heyday. I'm not that old, but I'm old enough to remember licking and sticking those things *and* going down to the local S&H Green Stamp store and picking stuff out.

That hanging Phillips porcelain round looks pretty early, never seen that one before but I don't look at Phillips items too often. Would that be a 42" sign? I wonder what the color combination was? I would like to see a pic of anyone has one in their collection to share.

I believe that it is a 30" inch sign may have made them in 42" as well; here is a pic of the color combo.

One of the guys is/was the mayor of Portland. The photo is of the Plymouth-Gilmore endurance run, in which the Plymouth traveled the Oregon-Washington Highways, 24 hours a day for 31 days. Logging 21,662 miles, 698.77 miles a day. The car ran a continuous 744 hours and was never shut-off. Blu-Green gas and Lion Head oil were used for the run.

The 4th picture above that says "Gas Oil & Water" (George Oliver Watson) was apparently from a movie set that was shot in 1922.
The gas station attendant was in reality a government secret agent.

Can you guys get some gargoyle station pics?

Re: Great Old Pics - Fri Aug 31 2012 03:26 PM

Hi Noah,
There really isn't such a thing as a "Gargoyle" station, at least in my opinion. The Gargoyle logo was mostly prevalent in the teens and 1920's, before the Socony-Vacuum merger and well before the companies had adopted a branded station so to speak. While SOCONY had branded stations a few years before the merger, Vacuum Oil Company really didn't. Vacuum was mostly about lubricant production, not gasoline. Socony-Vacuum had very strict standards after the merger about every detail of a station, from the building style, to the placement of the Pegasus signs, even what color the bathroom would be.
Gargoyle Mobiloil signs were all over the place in the teens and 20's. Early on, Mobiloil was sold at many outlets, including other branded gas stations. After the S-V merger the Pegasus symbol was adopted and the Gargoyle began it's fade out. That's why you never see a "Gargoyle branded" station.

Noah,

In checking my "to be posted pictures file" I found three examples of stations displaying the Gargoyle signage. Top right corner of the Tanker, between the pumps on the Coles Station, last and probably best example is the Socony Station you can see the curbside sign to the left and the "cabinet" to the right side of the pumps that has the gargoyle globe on top. Hope you enjoy!

I found this photo today. Its a local station thats been long gone. I saw Socony pumps & darn near hit the ceiling! Im going to look for any other pics to see if I can find out what happened to the station...its a bank & parking lot now. Hear me out but Im thinking those signs in the pic are the Socony signs Ive been digging. Its a small town & I dont believe there was more than one Socony station back in the 30s.

I believe that it is around the time frame of 1922 to 1926 based on researching the company Roxana.

The first station has been gone about fifteen years now. I remember going there to get the tubes patched in the tires of my BMX back in the early 90s.LOL The second one is still in use not as a gas station but a county store. It's still called Tallons. The road behind him leads straight into Canada. That area is full of history...prohibition era being my favorite.

I had never really looked at this thread that much, but it is really cool. I went back to the first of the thread and saw this picture and knew that it looked familiar. It is the Frank Lloyd Wright designed station in Cloquet, MN just southwest of Duluth. I have been going by that station on the way to our cabin in Canada every year for over thirty years! It is on highway 33 that runs through town. It has been a landmark there for years and is supposed to be the only cantilever roofed, Frank Lloyd Wright designed, filling station in the world....just so ya know.....Gary

I wish my 41 Lincoln in my garage looked as good as the one in that Gilmore station. Mitch

Re: Great Old Pics - Tue Dec 18 2012 02:07 PM

On that last Gilmore pic, is that an armored car? I first noticed the port hole on the side panel and thought that was unique, then it clicked that it was a gun port just below it, then I saw the one on the passenger door. The duellies are probably the other giveaway. It doesn't really stand out as being an armored car.

I'm pretty sure it is an armored car, at least that's what I've always believed.

These pics of the GILMORE Serve Yourself gas station (Gas-A-Teria) initially appeared in a Nov. 22, 1948 issue of LIFE magazine. Years ago, Google archived the issues of LIFE magazine and made them available online as well as many unseen photos.

Link to the article (pg 129-132)...

http://books.google.com/books?id=W0oEAAA...p;q&f=false

Link to the photo catalog relating to the Gilmore station...

http://images.google.com/hosted/life/c353257536985263.html

Note that "Gilmore" gasoline was not being sold here. Gilmore was out of business in 1945. Gas and oil was supplied by The Progress Company. The two gas brands that were sold were; OLYMPIC gas and RADAR "Thermo Lube" gas.

Re: Great Old Pics - Wed Dec 26 2012 11:18 AM

A few I found.
Interesting thing about the second picture. The main sign has the straight arrow yet it also has the diamond bumped out around the "S" & "O". From what I've been able to teach myself about the Sunoco logo, this is VERY rare situation and I think could only happen during a transition of the logo. If you look at the back of the truck, this is how the straight arrow configuration of the logo usually looks with the diamond edges running straight through. If you study Sunoco oil cans, the bumped out diamond doens't happen until 1961-62. This picture was dated 1951. So I don't understand this sign/picture. Still much to learn!!!!!

That 3D mobil Pegasus is pretty wild. Is that something that was one of...or are there others? Are there any survivors in any collections?

This is quite an exceptional and modern Mobil station which was situated right near Disneyland’s parking lot in Anaheim, CA. The station, which was photographed in 1956, with its modern, single-post supported canopies was designed by the architects Whitney Smith and Wayne Williams. Another feature worth noting is the hanging gas pumps which are also supported by a single-post in the same theme as the canopy. Mobil no doubt picked the team to design and build this station as a marketing scheme to impress the many visitors to Disneyland and keep them buying Mobil products on the trip back home and where they lived.

What strikes me about all the old pictures before the 60's is how many items were left outside with no one stealing them. I know some items are on wheels or have covers to lock up but as you can see alot of other items could not have been put up every day.

Ditto that ditto, but unfortunately we all know there's people out there that are chomping at the bit to correct you if you did.

BTW, thanks to all who took the time to post these great time warps.

Those who post pics on this thread regularly I think are all guilty of that; but as stated before never hurts to see them more than once....I have over 1000 old pictures saved in a separate file to post in this thread; I'm sure there will be a duplicate or two in there that has already been posted... shocked

The picture of the mechanics working in the engine rebuild shop is neat , my grandfather who is well into his 80's now still talks about how they use to have to shim the old Babbitt rod engines with prices of shoe leathers when they started to rattle.

Re: Great Old Pics - Wed Jun 05 2013 03:44 PM

Please bear with me, as I believe this image needs some background:

I have a "thing" for old radio programs, especially those that were sponsored by Oil Company's. One of those programs was; "The Air Adventures of Jimmie Allen" which originally ran from 1933 to the start of WWII...

Some of the Major Sponsors were: Skelly Oil, HI-SPEED Oil, B-A (in Canada) and Richfield Oil...





This Aircraft is the oldest known still flying Stearman Model 4E... It was delivered to the Richfield Oil Company on Oct 28, 1929... The aircraft was later used by Richfield Oil, as a promotional vehicle for their sponsorship of the Jimmie Allen Flying Club.

From Aug. 28th to Sept 2nd 2013, this plane is scheduled to be flown to an Antique Aircraft show near Blakesburg, Iowa. The "Fly-In" is not open to the Public, but if anyone lives in the area they may get the opportunity to see the aircraft in flight?...
Posted By: Bob Richards

Re: Great Old Pics - Wed Jun 05 2013 03:54 PM

Since I posted the "Jimmie Allen" aircraft advertising Richfield...

I might as well post an image of the 1st Plane to cross the Pacific... Non-stop. The Miss Veedol:





On October 5, 1931, Clyde Pangborn with co-pilot Hugh Herndon undertook a 41 hour flight from Sabishiro Beach, Misawa, Aomori Prefecture, Japan to the United States. The two pilots crash-landed the plane in the hills of East Wenatchee, Washington.

This station was remodeled as a car dealership and body shop. These are all photos of the same place throughout the years. I tried posting them in the order taken. I stopped by the dealership to see if they had any old signs or anything left. Looks like I missed out back in 1992...when I was twelve doing wheelies on a BMX. I did score these great photos so I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do. These are five photos of fourteen total.

Steve , in reality, you don't find "Former " service stations to actually survive as this one did . Usually, a lot more is changed . Thanks for a long look back ! Ed Shaver

Great pics. Wish I would have taken pics of the changes to my dads texaco stations after they were sold. I have many while operating with dad. After several businesses came and went over the years in them, they were torn down when I was in school at Illinois. 10 yrs later I got in the hobby. frown Rob

I was trying to find vintage historical 60's era photos of the Standard station that I would go to with my dad when I was a kid. Looking through some of the local archives I found all of these. All these places are within a mile or three of where I grew up.

Lots of early car dealers converted a wrecked high-end vehicle into their service car or wrecker. Here's a Cadillac LaSalle dealers service car.

During the Great Depression, migrant workers in California still took time to worship. How about this church bus - a 1931 Model AA Ford.
