Absolutely fabulous.  I love Texaco memorabilia and this 'dio" is an over the top example of what folks in our hobby are capable of.  Thank you for sharing your craftsmanship here.

Sorry about that. It's still front and center on my showcase. I've built a '66 Chevelle 4 door, and am close to finishing a '67 and '68 Mustang, as well as a 1965 Chevelle 4 door. If that isn't bad enough, I've finished my CAD drawings of the Rockford Files trailer, so I could potentially start that as well.

I do have most of the items ready for the manager's office in the Texaco station, so I could knock that room out pretty soon. I'm not sure what's next, once I finish the current 3 cars.

One advantage to the Rockford trailer is this: Even though it's a decent size in 1/25, I have room to store it. The Texaco station is just so darned BIG...

This thing is off the charts. I'm considering building an old parts house that is in my home town and this is really inspiring me to build it. I don't know where to start with the materials to make it happen but I'm drawn to this kind of modeling. Awesome work repstock.

Being really stupid is the new smart!!

Repstock;

 I wouldn't worry,Those are okay for original toilet seats in a restored or original built station.They varied even throughout one city .

 Now a question,Would you give me a fill-up of Premium and check my oil and fluids , Oh!And tire pressure too ?

 Do I need to make an appointment for the purpose of getting new tires ,and an oil change. Oh ! that's right this a model . Well,Had me confused for a minute !

Hi;

 Looks just one of three I owned along with twelve Shell Stations .

   I had them for one reason .Just to Buck the trend to " Self " service.

 I always believed that folks should have a local place that cared about them and their cars !

This is a wonderful thread. I am really enjoying your build. At 60 years old, I actually remember some of this and the quality of your work brings it all back to life for me. Thanks for sharing it with us all.
