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.

More old gas stations from our recent travels. Post your pics as a reply!

StationResidenceWashburnWI.jpg
You could live upstairs and have your dream gas station for your collection on the ground floor

Union76WI.jpg
A "76" sign that was repainted for a generic brand. Now that most of the paint is word off, the 76 is left crooked

StationWithV-Window.jpg
Interesting "V" shaped picture window room on the right side

MosquitoBarMI.jpg
Not a gas station, but an unusual north country bar & grill. Note the propped open door.

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.

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