    Here is a picture of the Sunoco gas station I worked at in the early 1960's. This is where I met my wife. That's her 1964 Corvair Monza at the pumps. Check out the price of gas!!
    The station had 2 bays and was a full service station in Detroit. Across the street was a Mobil station and way in the background was a Sinclair station.

    What kit can I use to build this truck??????
    In the early 1960's I worked at a Speedway 79/ Marathon gas station on the eastside of Detroit. It was called Stan's Service Center. He bought this Dodge truck new and Dodge featured it in it's local advertising campaign. What kit can I use to build this truck???

    Converting die cast banks to regular die cast race cars
    Picked up the pictured 4 die cast 2000 model year NASCAR cars at a show this weekend. Three of them are banks (black window cars). Would like to covert them to regular die cast cars with interiors and clear windows. Any idea where I could get interiors or clear glass windows to  do this. I wouldn't mind using current interiors to update the cars. If I wrote Lionel do you think they would help????????
