Looks as if there have been some structural changes done over the years. I bet you would have liked to have that Sunoco wall Steve. Those signs are killer.


Have gas all the time

I thought the same thing Les. If that was still there, I would be downtown labeling and pealing bricks : )

Cool pic Steve. There are so many old gas stations still standing in Detroit. It's very neat. If you take a few side streets you will see a bunch. I was just down there yesterday and passed two. It was at night, so I copied this pic off google maps of where I was driving (I can't remember where I saw the second one).

It seems like you can't drive a few blocks without finding one in the Motor City. Unfortunately they are usually in dangerous areas and I would advise against it. ….and don't ask why I was on side streets in Detroit last night... lol
