Well, I will be breaking ground for a fifties style Pure gas station. The size is 38x30. After a long search to no avail I found a company that is making the exterior panels for me. I will let you know of our progress and will post some photos when it's all done. I can hardly wait.

Terry, how far are you from Toledo? It might be Road Trip time when the station is done , post some pictures of the progress as you go. a 50's Pure sounds pretty cool

Terry,
Sounds like a dream many of us have. Take us along with you by sharing pictures of the process. I'll help post them if you need it.

Jeff Wilson runs the "Gas from the Past" restoration shop in Peculiar, Mo. south of Kansas City. Inside his building he put a vintage 1950s porcelain Pure station building. The service bay is his paint booth and the office is his office. The driveway area is his restoration workshop. It is wonderful to see. If you get the chance, it would be valuable to you to visit or at least talk with Jeff. Here is a peek, click to visit his site.

Jim, Thanks for the link. Seeing that Pure station made my "viagra" kick in. I will be glad to send you some pics to post as we make progress.
I am about 1 hour east of Columbus in Coshocton County. Coshocton Co. is sort of the advertising capital of the world. The American Art Works was located here that made most of the Coca-Cola Trays. Check your oil-top pens and pencils, they made those also. Located here was also the Meek Company, Novelty Advertising, The Beech Company and Shaw Barton advertising company that produced mainly advertising calanders and other advertising specialties. Oh, by the way, tell all your wives and girlfriends the Longaberger Basket Co. is just down the road in Dresden.
I love this site and hang around here alot.
Thanks again,
Terry

Now I don't think a road trip would be a wise thing to do , if Danielle finds out that Longaberger baskets are just down the road I'll be broke in no time , Gas pumps are cheeper I think HA HA

Well, We broke ground yesterday and also broke the neighbors phone line digging the footer.
Hope that is the only thing to go wrong on this project.

Hey Terry we're practically neighbors! Well almost. I live up north of you off of 77. In Canton. 1 hours maybe. Road trip time in the Hot Rod for sure. When it's warmer.

Later,Bill

Terry sent in these pictures of the progress on his Pure station. It is 30 x 38.




We're livin' this dream with you Terry. Wish I had the room to do that. Hey, we could start up an organization to help other enthusiasts build the retro station of their dreams. How about calling it "Habitat for Oldgasoholics" ?
