I'm new but been member since 2019. Never posted anything just been reading and trying to get ideas on building a back yard Gas Station. Now I have it built I'm ready to start liquidating some things I don't need or have too much of and mainly stick with texaco items and pickup a few items I'd like to have to complete station. I worked for a texaco when I was a teen and always wanted a station. I installed a lift, a vintage coats tire machine and a bubble balancer. It has 6 porcelain lights inside and 8 outside that came out of an airplane hangar in Nashville Tn. that was built in the 40's. It' was built by pictures I collected over years. Never posted pictures of it before. So if anyone has any ideas for improvement please let me know. Really enjoy reading old gas.

Thank you. I worked pretty hard on it. Ended up doing little more than planned!

That looks great! Always been a dream of mine to do something like that for a shop. Very nicely done.

Oh and if you also have a Cessna 150 you could probably park that in the side bay laugh
