As the official picture poster for DodoGas I have the rare privelage of saying a few words about the images presented. This is how the shop looks when Frank is expecting company, its like the Mother Inlaw called and said they'd be over on the Concord in a half hour, he ran around quickly with the forklift and dump truck and tidied the place up so it shows well, But.......I'll bet he hiding dirty cars in that big stove against the wall.

I'm going to start a contest of my own and Dodo can award the prize.

How many square feet is his building?
The first answer within 100 sq. ft. wins!

Had to take them all off, one time i see a marker light missing, checked the other side , screws were out of it , and headlight covers no screws, guess i interupted them and came back at the right time, so i took them all off.
I should clarify, i bought this with a partner who also has a 50,s Chevron station about 1/2 a mile away and uses it for service work and adjoining an engine rebuilders. Cool place. I know 1 guy used to have that place as a repair shop, another whose dad owned it as a Chevron garage, and the guy i bought the shop from worked there pumping gas!!
The shop I am in I have been in there about 8 yrs, will have to sell off a lot of my gas stuff to do this. It is near downtown. 600 ft to the old Train Station, 900 ft to the Stadium, and about 1800 ft to the beach and lake, so the punishment is no too bad!!!
nobody is right on the Square feet yet.

Hey guys.

That shop looks like it's 80 ft x 80 ft which would make it around 6,400 sq ft.

Am I close pogo? Huh, Huh, am I, am I?
