This service station is paper i.e. cardboard not steel. I added some original issue built model cars from the 60's bought from a house where they'd been stores. Also there is a Korris Kars hot rod in the photo too. I love this time period in American history.

    How many times have I watched American Graffitti? 50 or so... Two Lane Blacktop features the same '55 Chevy driven by James Taylor (the singer) and is also a favorite along with Hollywood Knights.

    Lemme have a Three Musketeers, and, a ball point pen, one of those combs there, a pint of Old Harper, ah, a couple of flashlight batteries, and... some beef jerky.

    Newark, DE has Mainstreet where for 30 years people would cruise and find races on a nearby road. I found a lot of victims with my 409 Chevy and my later LS-6 powered Chevelle. It was not unlike American Graffitti. Great times.

    Your Service Station blows me away. Can you share any more information on it?
