I grew up in the Dallas area and we had "GLOCO" Good Luck Oil Company service stations. I know some history on this company but have never seen any signs, pumps or globes in their livery.
Anyone have some photos they would be willing to share? This is what I have discovered on the internet, but looking for more especially globe art.

Thanks Randy! Still looking for colors for the livery. Thinking about building a fantasy pump and Globe. Trying to nail down the right colors. I remember green, red and pink neon on the signs at their "Tower " locations but cant seem to find color photos.

Google "Color image Gloco station" and you'll find a few pictures. I remember one of the last Gloco stations to close was near the Coca Cola bottling plant by Love Field. I believe it closed in the mid 1980's if I remember right.

If I understand correctly there is still one Gloco station still operating on West Commerce just across the river from downtown.
