I love the travel tip on the back of this one, it reads: How to avoid roadside grief - Cheerful attendants at independent Chevron Gas Stations or Standard Stations will be glad to check your tires, battery, radiator. They're specially trained to watch for hidden troubles, warn you before a failure!
Again, in fantastic condition for age!! Bit like myself really!!

    Hi mustangtony! The road map being unavailable at your station is unbelievable, but having said that I am not that sure that I would find one at ours - must check that out! We also have people that drive away after filling up with petrol without paying, so I do not think it will be too far off when we do as you do and pay first!!! It is all about profit and sales now and not about a good service - a sad departing from the way we remember it I think! (The Good Old Days!) That is my moan for tonight!!LOL:-)
