My name is Jim my first job was pumping gas in a Martin Gas Station Gas was 26 cents a gallon bulk oil was 25 cents a quart. I was around different Gas Station growing up .

    A friend of mine had a simular experience like Tony . He found 6 full quarts of Packard Special Motor Oil in all metal cans. Cans have very light surface rust no dents or scratches. Condition of cans rate from very good to fair. We are interested in finding out what there worth . Selling them is also a option. If anyone is interested in or has information about these cans please email me at . I will send you pictures of the cans . Thank you TIM
