Default A REAL service station

Not only could you fill your tank for $4.00, the attendant pumped the gas for you while cleaning your windshield and checking your oil. Taken at the Antique Car Museum of Iowa in Coralville (near Iowa City).

When I got my driver's license, full-service gas stations were not only the norm, but the only ones available. How times have changed...

Edit: Nice photos, the color one does it for me!

Very nice subject and pp.

I remember seeing an antique-looking and working gas station somewhere nearby (in NY state). I wonder if it would be OK to snap photos...
