Hey Guys & Gals,

It's time to share the petro relics that we've stumbled across in our recent travels, and check out what other people have found as well.

If you would like to contribute to this feature, simply post the pictures here or email them directly to me and I will post them for you. Be sure to include a story or description with your submissions.

If it's too close to the next installment, please note that I may hold your contribution for posting when the new FATW comes up.
Send 'em in!!

Happy Trails!

Wes

This small chain in Illinois still has full service! Looks to have been a Union 76 at one time...


Check out the cool square canopy lights -- this is only the 2nd station I've seen with these.




This is a neat old store that once sold gas.

Couple nice old stations -- The first one looks to have been Texaco. The second is probably another.

Neat old Gulf bulk plant. The first time I saw it, it was surrounded by tanks, vines, and overgrowth, and was likely full of globes. When I finally made it back, it was as shown here -- the land was cleared and grassy. A peek in the open door revealed that it is now completely empty.



Neat old pile of junk:

That's all I've got for now -- it's been a long, cold winter and I haven't done much driving around. Feel free to post your photos!
