Automobilia

What is it about gas stations that so motivates so many car people (car guys and car girls collectively)? Are these items a memory of long lost youth? When a gallon of gas cost 30 cents a gallon (pre-1973's OPEC Oil Embargo, adjusted for inflation that gallon of gas should now cost about $1.65)?

Photos copyright 2012 and 2015 by Richard Truesdell, all rights reserved.These photos show one man's impressive collection of petrolania. My favorite? Having grown up in New Jersey and having started driving in the fall of 1971, I think that the mint condition Sunoco custom blending pump is the centerpiece of his collection. But be sure to check out the ZL-1 cross-ram Camaro.
