there are 3 abandoned gas stations a block from my house, a 76 gas station, a marathon, that's the only one that has been cleaned up and up forsale, and I think it was a Amoco , Amoco and 76 abandoned

I could get pictures but I would need to send to someone because my photobucket is not working for me any more

I shot this restored Texaco station in 2006 (out the back window of a speeding car; the driver was in a hurry); only thing is I'm not sure exactly where. Best I can recallĀ is it was south of Chattanooga in the NW tip of Georgia or maybe the NE tip of Alabama:

This little Texaco station in Paducah, KY has been restored as an office:

And this one (same town) hasn't been, yet:

I used to pass by this house in Baldwin Park, CA a lot and I think it must have been a gas station at some point:

And finally Ronnie's Automotive Service, the old station at 2012 N. Lake Ave. in Altadena, CA as it looked in 1983:
