How many of you guys have a gas station in your back yard? Jeff I know you have a Mobil if I remember right,and Dwaine has a Flying =A=, but how many others have a back yard building that looks like a Gas station, maybe you guys could post some pictures, and tell us something about it,did you use original plans ? what your still looking for , what you would do different if you had to do it over again.

HEY CHRIS...YOU PUT THIS IN THE WRONG FORUM....HUH, OH YOU REALIZED THIS ALREADY? MAN, IT'S JUST WAY TOO EARLY!

I HOPE TO BE DOING A MOCK STATION
OUT OF A SMALL SHED IN MY BACKYARD SOMEDAY, BUT FOR THE MOMENT I USE THE DRIVEWAY LEADING TO MY 2-CAR GARAGE WHICH
HAS SOME FEEL OF AN OLD TIME GARAGE SERVICE STATION. I JUST ROLL OUT SIGNS, ETC FOR THE DAY
ON THE WEEKENDS. PEOPLE WILL
ACTUALLY ASK IF MY GAS IS THAT CHEAP! GOOD FORUM THOUGH, MAYBE WE COULD GET OLDGAS MEMBERS TO POST PICTURES OF THEIR HOMELAND "STATIONS." I KNOW FLYINGAMAN CRAIG IS THE ONLY ONE I KNOW THAT HAS HIS INSIDE HIS PLACE! HOW COOL IS THAT?

EMAIL ME FOR IMAGES/POSTING HELP:

Chris,
I don't have a back yard station.....yet. My wife and I bought some acreage last fall. We're eventually going to build a new house, shop, and porcelain gas station. I'd like to find a procelain station (preferably Sinclair) in the southern Illinois area.

Chris..I wish I had a station in the backyard..Thats my dream. This is what I have for now..just a lil shed wanna be station. Lack of room (and funds) prevent me from having a real station but someday my friend..Oh YES..someday..but my lil shed will have to do for now.



As soon as the kids are grown and out of the house I want to make the rec room like Craigs..just to Mobil. The kids play alot in there and wouldnt want to set it up until they are gone. I would love to see other peoples stations though...c'mon guys ..lets see.

I no you've all seen this old picture. and it would have been better if the collector could show where he had an original moved and set up. It is a task and expensive. We all have our reasons for building them the way we do, If I had'nt had the three Porcelains for the front I might have done it completely different. I went with Flying A for the same reason. I don't have over 500.00 in all the pumps. Got most of my lenses from Craig years ago. have run out of room inside, starting to put banners and signs on the ceiling. even had to move one of my Barber chairs to the deck behind the house.

Well the first attempt worked for the image posting. This is the first phase of my replica mobil station. I am currently working on two Wayne 60's that will be sitting on the island on the left. Also there will be a Fry "71 speedboy" restored and placed on the lh side of the building. The phone booth I restored two years ago and its actually came out of London. More pictures to follow as progress continues.

It is one building with General Store on one side and Texaco Station on the other. Inside is where I keep most of my treasures. The General Store side faces the "Train Station" where I keep my vintage park model train.

Hello, last weekend one of my boys and I were away on a hockey tournament. The hockey was great and even greater was that I got to visit a guy called Jorma who is a collector of gas and oil. He has built a complete Gulf station both out- and indoors in an old concrete factory, and he has also restored an old Esso station building from the 40's. I' start by showing the little Esso building, and will come in later with the Gulf station.
Enjoy!
Claes - Sweden

...and here are some pictures of the GULF part...

Scott, thanks a zillion for posting my pictures. You've made a fine contribution to assisting the internet challenged. My station is the outdoor entertainment area for my game room which is in the barn next to it. It's a one stop station and drive through diner, you can eat and get gas. If anyone is ever driving around Solvang look me up and I will give you a tour of the other stations around the area. You're a good man quarts.
