That diorama is simply amazing, very inspiring. Makes me want to resurrect my gas station model I built about 5 years ago. Add a few cars and trucks from the collection and I'll be all set.

BTW I wasn't even born 'til November 24 of '72.

Wow Rob, that is fantastic! Boy, does it ever bring back memories. I was a junior in high school, driving my first car, a '65 Chevy Impala with a 327/300 and 4 speed. I don't even want to think about gas prices then :rolleyes: . I love the diorama!

THAT IS AN AWSOME DIO, I was 17 and working in a clark gas station when all you had to do was pull in and say filler up. Those days are gone,gas was 21 cents a gallon and I could fill up my 62 Impala conv. for 4.00. The cool thing was,working at the gas station, I would fill my car up and then open for business with the boss.

This is really something of a masterpiece. I enjoyed spotting Kowalski and Jungle Jim on the street. I was not even born until 1978, but my car is a 72. Awesome diorama.
