The locals prefer the quick service provided by the Texaco over
the hit and miss operation of the Amoco. Remember the old slogan,"
Trust your car to the man with the star". Oil companies even provided
uniforms and caps for the service attendants so they looked professional
and consistent across the U.S.A.
I made my own tall sign post as well as the small "hoop"
sign out of brass by the hydrant. Notice the old way of having the pump
island higher than the rest of the driveway. If you notice the 37 Ford,
the rear is higher so you could get more gas in the tank for a "fill
up". I forgot to install a few details as I got in a hurry to start
one of those new projects elsewhere.
