I have been resisting the urge to post a picture of my Veltex station until it was completely finished...I am not yet done with it... But when the snow started falling on it (something that we rarely get much of) I could no longer resist the urge to show off a little

Very cool building, I like the antique look.
How tough are those Veltex 6 footers to come by?


Still looking for that Union 76 ball
And I collect big old porcelain neon signs

I don't think I could have waited that long if I had something that has come together this nicely. However, waiting for the snow made it dang near perfect. Guess what my screensaver is for this week? Thanks for sharing.

Hey that is awesome. Love the Veltex. Those 6 footers dont come around to often. I also like the old Ford tow truck. I makes a nice screen saver too

Perfect, just absolutely perfect!!
how many ghosts you got hanging around there?

I'd be honored to include this (and any inside photos as well) in the "garageaddiction website.

If you give tours, maybe I could talk Les into a day trip sometime when the weather clears? We're only a couple of hours south of you.

That is wonderful. It looks like it has been there at least 60 years. Great job. Thanks for sharing it!

The wife says it's time for a road trip, and we're in Michigan.

Wow. I thought that WAS an old building. Nice job. I would worry about theft with prices the way they are now days.

Washington Chief, do you give tours? Since I live in the general neighborhood, if possible I would love to be able to check it out and meet you. It is a great looking building! You have done a fantastic job on the outside, I bet it even looks better inside. And thanks for the perfect background on my laptop.
