I've seen Back to the Future dozens of times, but most recently I noticed (besides the 1955 Texaco station) in the back of Biff's waxing job pick-up there looks to be a case of Quaker State motor oil.

Does The Andy Griffith Show count? Theres a couple of nice Martin & Schwartz 70 pumps with steel domes where the globes go. I believe the episode was "The great Gas station robbery.?" Gooooolly Goober! smile

I was about contacted by a man in Atlanta about restoring a computer for an A-38 done in Phillips for an upcomming Movie supposedly about Jackie Robinson. Called "42" ????? The movie guys were impatient and he contacted me too late so I never got the job.
In Driving Miss Daisy, the Sinclair Station they stopped at was in the town I lived in at the time. I was in PA at the time of the shooting ..........ARG!!!!

There were about three or four different types of pumps over the course of the series. Always selling that quality ACME brans of gasoline...

Speaking of Andy Griffith, the movie "No Time for Sergeants" was on today with Andy in it. He was handcuffed to a couple of old gas pumps in the opening scenes.
