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

I got a new camera somewhat recently, but it's been raining so much that I've only gotten to go out and shoot one station so far. I'm liking the results so far though.

Here is Bruce's Texaco station here in Decatur. You may remember it from previous FATW posts. I drove by a couple weeks ago, and saw that Bruce is working on replacing the concrete lot and island. Here's the progress so far:





That's all I've got until we get some more nice weather for taking pics. Let's see what you've seen this month!

I believe I posted this a couple years ago but thought since we have a lot of new members here it is again seen on the last trip to Ut.

Stay after him! Someday he'll up and change his mind and you'll be right there. I'm sitting on a very old Bowser waiting for the elderly woman to change her mind.

Yea,This was an old Fina Station.Everyone always called it "The Round Station".Been shut down at least 25 years.The top frame of the pole sign is twisted and damaged and probably not be worth the salvage.A lot of memories go with these old stations.
