They had 150 stations in the NM, WY, CO, KS, UT, NE, ID, MT area there were also several hundred in CA, OR and WA. I have addresses of most in the mountain states if you are looking for one in particular let me know.
I think I already posted this but here it is again a map of the original distribution area:

Here is a good example of an easy pour can from an auction photo:

We are coming into the last week. I only have a few more photos. Here is a one of a kind:

the prototype of the bearcat image.
Everyone has seen the clouded powerlube signs on ebay. Here is a fellow oldgassers before and after cleanup shots.


Chris what did you use to clean it up?

A couple more paper items

Along the same lines as collecting stamps to get free merchadise they also had this booklet for kids to collect stamps of famous indians.


An article from the 20's came out in the National Petroleum News about Powerine below is a link to the full copies if you would like to read them.(these are big files) http://www.frontrangegas.com/powerweb/npn/

I think this is the last of the paper pictures:

notice the tire cover

A company car

A better picture of the station at the top of Berthoud pass. What a cool spot!

A real early station.

A company sponsored soapbox race car. Notice the shirt with the bearcat logo.

Thanks for the kind words Bob. Today I will finish up all the cans I have pictures of and tomorrow will end my part on this company of the month.



It is not know if the above statue is a real powerine item or not. I thought it was worth looking at either way.

Scott, I have to tell you that in my opinion this has been probably the best Company of the Month post. I don't mean to take anything away from all the other hosts we have had, they were remarkable as well. KUDO'S
