Scott Anderson of Time Passages also supplied the Sinclair station for the movie Avalon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b37auo3dSuM
During a trip across the States with friends in 1996, we visited him in Des Moines and he talked about the Texaco station and showed us pictures of him with Clint Eastwood. He was very kind inviting us to the restaurant and that evening we had lot of fun.

YES, AVALON! I SAW A FEATURE ON THAT IN THE BEGINNING OF ANOTHER MOVIE AND I'M GONNA LOOK FOR IT IN THE LIBRARY THIS WEEK. LOOKS LIKE A COOL FLICK ABOUT 3 GENERATIONS IN ONE FAMILY SPANNING MANY 20TH CENTURY YEARS.

This is a nice movie. Can someone let me know if the brand is a fantasy or not?
Thank you

How about that evil 58 plymouth Christine. Don't ya wish our old pumps could restore themselves like that. Mine would probably just squirt old stale gas on me ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;Ron

in the movie version of Arlo Guthrie's epic song "Alice's Restaurant," i believe there is a scene with Arlo outside a Gulf station with the older, all capital letters "GULF" signage.

I JUST TOOK OUT FROM THE LIBRARY AND WATCHED "INVENTING THE ABBOTTS." A VERY GOOD FLICK SET IN THE 1957-60 TIME ERA. SEVERAL SCENES WITH THE SAME GAS STATION AS THE OLDER OF TWO BROTHERS WORKED THERE.

HOWEVER, I DID SPOT A GOOF OR SLIP-UP IN THE SOUND DEPT. AT ONE POINT THE YOUNGER BROTHER DOUG PULLS IN FOR GAS. HE GETS OUT OF THE CAR AND OLDER BROTHER CJ PUTS THE NOZZLE IN AND THEY HAVE A CONVERSATION. OTHER THAN THAT IT IS TOTALLY SILENT! ABSOLUTELY NO SOUND FROM THE PUMP AND NO DINGING OF A BELL AS THE GALLONS PASS THRU! LOL!

ANYWAY: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119381/

"About 15 years ago I would sit watching old movies with the VHS recorder button in my hand and as soon as a service station came in the screen I would hit record. I have some great screens, one I remember mostly was Humphry Bogart pulling up to some visible pumps while driving the oldest truck you ever saw. Will try and find the old VHS"

"they drive at night" saw it lately on dvd.
