Badgas,

That last station is very 'Jetson.' What year would it be from do you think?

^^^That's a nice station. I was in Wenatchee twice earlier this years. Once briefly for a few days in April and then about a week in August. My wife's grandmother and aunt/uncles live there. I saw the construction on that building in August. There's also a guy across the street that has a powerwashing business. I saw him powerwashing a few of those pumps before being restored. The owner of the business happened to stop by at the same time while I was talking to the powerwashing guy about the pumps. I even offered a Gilbarco pump to him that I was taking back to my house. He never materialized on the offer.

Either way, I can't wait to visit that place again next year.
