Hey all! Time to show off all the pics of stuff you've seen on do the roads while looking for Petro stuff. Here's a great little station in Kenosha,WI that I saw while up there last week.

Hopefully some of you who got to Iowa had a chance to hit some back roads on your way to/ from the show! Show em if ya got em!

Ok, I put this in the May one as it was the last one I could find...so I am reposting. Hope that is OK. This is on Flathead Lake near Polson, MT...I was raised there...

Banjo sign is in Wallace, Idaho and the Wayne 60 is just off I-90 in Idaho.

^ I wonder what that Texaco pole is doing right on the lake!? Looks like it's almost in the water? Gas station for boaters? Very cool!

Took a different route through Lockport N.Y. to my favorite wing place and came across this gem. Cool roof design and still very solid.

Took a little side trip on the way home from Iowa.

Here is an old Phillips 66 in Winter, WI. The current owner of the building has had it in his family since it was built. My next trip through he is going to show me some pictures of when it was a station and how it changed.





The next one is an old Zephyr Station near Holcombe WI

Nice pair of A100 Dodges. Someone did a lot of work fabricating that flat deck auto hauler. Putting that smaller body on a much larger chassis would have been challenging at many levels.

I don't know how to start this post without making it a autobiography. When I started in this hobby I thought it would be cool to restore a pump just like the ones I pumped gas from in 53 and 54. So I started looking for pictures of the old station. It was a Standard station with the crowns the building made from cinder block with a office and about a six car garage. The building still stands today in a modified configuration as you will see. Needless to say I cannot find any old pictures of it. Next option is to talk to dead peoples relatives. We were the last station going south out of Cheyenne on US 85&87. It is pretty much still on the edge of town. I went out there the other day and took a few pictures. The original building was bought by the VFW post 4343 in about 1954. Since then they have added and added on to it. In the second picture I have outlined the part of the old building you can see from the back and side. The next two pictures are of our body shop that they have moved from the other side where it used to set. It now sets behind the Teepee. Has you can see it is a old service station building. The owner of the Teepee said maybe he would sell it. I'm not interested, to old. The Teepee was still being built in 1954. The teepee itself is framed with 2" flue pipe salvaged from old steam engines that the UP were cutting at that time. It was built as a tourist attraction. It has been used for a truck garage, flea market and now is a baseball practice facility. There used to be a café in a old dining car that sat between the station and Teepee. That is where I ate my first chicken fried steak in 1953 and talked the waitress into letting me punch the punch boards. Now here are the pictures. Mitch
