Let's see your pictures of petro scenes you come across in your travels. Old gas stations that are still around along with old car dealerships, auto repair garages and other petro sights.

We just got back from a road trip along the southern shore of Lake Superior. Here are a few shots I saw on the back roads of western U.P. Michigan and northern Wisconsin.

Old car dealership building on a steep mountainside in the copper mining town of Jerome, Arizona. The vintage photo shows a wooden ramp that took cars to a basement service department. The antique car elevator holding a 1936 Plymouth was used in this building to lower cars to a sub-basement auto service level. I love the old car front and rear clips on a pole in front of the building.

The building now houses several antique dealers, a music shop, a steampunk art vendor and the town post office. After the copper mine closed down in the 1950s, the town now hangs on as a cool tourist destination.

I've noticed a vacant porcelain panel gas station on a main street in Verona, Wisconsin in recent years. I had hoped that the old building wouldn't get torn down. Last week when I passed by I was happy to see that it was all fixed up into a coffee, ice cream cafe joint called "Icki Sticki."
