Post your photos of old gas stations, car dealerships and auto service garages as they look today.

Here is a building I saw in recent travels in St. Elmo, TN, near Chattanooga. It may not have been a gas station, but that completely paved front, corner lot and big garage door make it look like it could be to me. What do you think?

Found Along The Way in south-central Wisconsin 2 lane roads. An old station, a still in operation station and a handsome stone garage.

Post pics of what you see along your way.

Not gas station but here are some roadside stops I made on a recent road trip:
Root beer stand, ice cream shop in restored Vagabond trailer and Lincoln Highway museum

Here is a place near me I would love to buy and restore. Half station half restaurant, I ate there as a child.
