Guido,

Thanks for sharing!

What is that vehicle in your first pic?

Does the second pic mean that the station was accepting Austrailian pounds and Americal dollars? Was it just during that era? I am assuming that a station like that would now just accept Austrailian dollars.

BTW Austrailian currency is beautiful! Tho I guess any currency if you have enough of it is beautiful... : )

Try to find a Pegasus like that. Flat and curved!

Can anyone "more from the era smile " tell my why the car in the Mobil station pic has a full tarp or covering on it? That's one heck of a stone guard, lol.
I think the Hillsdale Mobil station had the same "curved" Pegasus on it from the one pic I've been able to find of it. You can barely see the front end in my photo, but it looks like it curved as well. Do you think they took the flat version with back bracket mounts, and since the curve is so slight on the building that they were just able to mount them and it didn't crack the porcelain? I would guess with a larger sign there is a bit of bend in the sign due to the size? I've never seen a curved one but I haven't seen it all.

Darin, mostlikely, it was a "Test - Mule " from Detroit . Back in the Day, General Motors and Ford and too many times Chrysler would wrap a car in canvas so as to discuise the Sheet metal from the competition . I remember here in Richmond Va. , Chrysler had a couple of Test - Mules here .I think it was around 1961. I had somewhat of an inside as I knew the owners of both a Chevrolet dealership and a Plymouth dealer too. Ed Shaver


see ya on the road folks !

They still do that today, even at their own test tracks.
