What a fantastic collection! I really like that the pumps are mostly unrestored -- and one is even in the house that way! That gives me hope...

Here is a neat old Pure station that I have driven by on my way to work for over 30 years and it has not changed much.
If you look over the top of the station on the left you can see the roof of Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts.

I like that Pure station, Tom. I wonder what happened to the roof -- that high pitch should have continued back to the chimney at one time.

Mick -- Good eye! I was wondering who would be the one to notice that Gargoyle sign! It wasn't for sale smile Actually, believe it or not, that picture was taken in a museum! More about that later, though...

Looking closer (and from the air), maybe that Pure station was made that way. Perhaps because of the building immediately behind it (see link)?

You can rotate view by clicking the compass directions at the upper left of the view.

Scott,I thought that was Jimmies house just as soon as I saw the pics of under the deck. Jimmie and I both have Streetrods. I'll have to crank on him though. He told me he was going to get serious on that roadster and it look the same as when it was in the basement. Pat

Here is a friend of mine's station that he opened in 1966 I believe. His boys recently repainted it back to the way it was when it originally opened. Very cool.

I bought gas at That PHILLIPS Station when they were still pumping gas [1994].

Dick, I figured you might know where the station is.
