When we were up for Peotone, Tara and i went driving around with Bob (Lastgas15) to look at stations. A few of them were the ones I posted last month, but here are a few more:

This is a simple little station in Kankakee, IL. It was probably a lot neater before it was sided over.


Right across the street, though, sits this nice old station. I'm guessing it might have been a DX.



Up the road a little bit is this interesting station. Bob said it used to be a Phillips 66.

I really like the tan glazed ceramic tile on this station in central Illinois. I wonder if it was a D-X, from the tile color and layout?


We were surprised to see this Chevrolet dealership neon on the side of a relatively new building in Wisconsin over Thanksgiving.

On our way to visit Mick (oldnfuelish) and Steven (youngnfuelish), we happened across these two old stations sitting side by side on IL 173.





That's all I've got for now. Let's see some of the cool things you guys saw while traveling over Thanksgiving!

This old Mobil sign stands outside a bar in mid-Michigan. In addition to this sign there are both left- and right-facing Mobil pegasus signs on the front of the building that I wasn't able to get pictures of.




I don't know what the story is behind the Mobil stuff, but the name of the bar is the Red Horse so maybe they just liked the pegasus image

Decay is a way of life in the humid South. And I'll go no further on that subject.

OK, I can't delete the screw up that used to be here but I can totally change it. Folks, if you're afraid of learning to post, get over it. It has taken me all of an hour to figure out enough to get in and out of trouble. Off the topic, but here's where I hang out. Where that Dixie sign is used to be a battered Billups pump plate that went to Cheese Heaven for a religious experience.

This is an artsy look at the decay at the Chevron.

Southland is one of my interests. I was taken aback when I passed what looked to be a Southland distributor-i thought they were extinct. Was depressed when I realized I'll probably never have this globe. East Central MS.

This is so far back in the woods two cars literally cannot pass on the road-one must stop. The elderly lady just locked the doors in the 1980's. Southeast MS
