Let's start things off with some Sinclair pictures... Tara got really excited when she spotted this bulk plant / office in Missouri.





The place is still in operation, and the lady inside gave Tara a neat little Sinclair flashlight keychain.

Note the credit cards sign...


It sure looks like it's an older sign, painted over...

Neat air/water pole still intact, but unused...


Here's a cool oil delivery truck we spotted:


Tara was very happy to see that Sinclair is alive and well in Missouri...

Check out this thing! I THINK it's an island light...



Here's why I think that...

The Conoco sign looks to be in great shape.

Here's a Bowser square visible in an antique store. A Mexican version??

Wes, I have been enjoying this thread for awhile now. There are so many things around us that until it is called to our attention we don not appreciate it.
Here is an old Socony Warehouse

Old station converted into a physical therapy office not far away from Soulsbyville, CA.


I wonder if the pumps were original to the station...


Gas station converted into a convinience store/newstand in Santa Cruz, CA.
