Tom - this is excellent. The layout and floor plan is just like the one in my hometown in southwest Iowa owned by a friend of mine's dad. We spent a considerable amount of time there as kids but that was long before 1977.
Looking forward to following along on this journey.

Do you have any in progress Pics?

Some progress has been made. the little tower is pretty much done. I've started painting some walls. The color is DupliColor white acrylic lacquer.

that is fantastic. there were still a lot of these stations in use when I was still living in and near Lynchburg Va in the 90's. not many were still service stations, but there were a couple. be sure to put a grease pit in there.

You can trust your car to the man who wears the star, lol..back in the 60's/70's Texaco was ripping off its customers by charging for parts the mechanic never replaced. I think 60 minutes went to a few stations and proved that fact.
