"COTW" this week is for filling station pictures of old and new stations. If you need me to post a picture for you email me at quarts@mindspring.com

Here are two pictures of an Imperial Refineries station in the town where I grew up in. The last photo is a station that is still currently in use in St. Joseph, Missouri.

I'm wanting to put up a replica porcelain station on my property in southern Illinois. Jarvis found this vacant Texaco station in southern Indiana. The panels weren't for sale, but I could have had them in exchange for demolishing the the building (including concrete floor) and the big canopy and pump islands. There would have been a lot of red tape involved with performance bonds, etc. It certainly wasn't cost effective either. Demo and disposal would have been thousands of dollars. You can probably figure out the rest of the story. They wouldn't sell me the panels, but the paid someone to tear the building down.
