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.

That's funny Jim...last year this time I ate at the other location in Duluth. I didn't even know the place has old sign decor until I walked in. Nice signs.

Would you approach these folks about their painted over gas station sign?

Pretty cool graphics. I think they intend on keeping it. If you're going to ask, be sure to not make 'em upset. wink

Yes Jim it would be at the least "interesting", a picture will suffice!
