Found Along The Way - Sat Mar 02 2019 04:20 AM

The wife and I took a little vacation trip last summer to the west coast and other points of interest along the way. We visited several National Parks to and fro and other places of interest. We were always looking for petro related places along the way, also. We were on our way back home and stopped off in Mitchell, SD one morning for breakfast and the restaurant we stopped at just happened to have a Petroliana "feast". Really enjoyed our breakfast there. If anyone is ever through there and wants to see this, the name of the restaurant is Marlin's Family Restaurant. Enjoy....

These next few pics are from Kramer Junction, CA. Really nice collection. We were through there on Sunday, the day after their swap meet. Sure wish we had made it a day early, oh well...

This one was from Yellowstone National Park. Really liked this bus, chased it for about 10 miles trying to get a picture of it... Hope everyone enjoys these pics as much as we did...

Randy, what I was trying to show was that the buses they are using now are not real 36 White buses. The ones they are using now are White bodies on 2007 Ford 450 chassis made to look like the real thing. Mitch

I was out on my bike the other day... spotted a FISK sign through the window of a local Tire shop.... had to stop and take a few pics.
This is a Tire Shop, somewhere in Stockholm, Sweden... still in full power :-)

Dale, I ate at that exact same restaurant totally by accident in August 2017. We were on our way back to MI from Yellowstone and were staying at the hotel next store. I suggested we eat there since it was close. When I walked in with the family, I gave them the look of " I SWEAR I didn't know this was here!". Cool place to eat.

You're right about the Yellowstone buses Mitch. I was gassing up at a Sinclair station there in Yellowstone and a driver was there filing up his bus. I talked to him for a few minutes about the buses. They still look cool as heck though.

Brian:
We also dropped in there not knowing the decor. Really surprised and delighted. Isn't it great to find a place like this unexpectedly?..
