Service, Please! Your Contributions are Welcome
« on: August 25, 2012, 08:42:02 AM »
Workin' in the fillin' station - too many tasks. Wipe the windows - check the tires - check the oil - dollar gas!

Ol' Chuck got what he wanted, I guess, as that kind of service is mostly a memory, or an image in a movie. But for the first three-quarter centuries of the automobile's history, 'full service' meant just that. A Dollar gas would get you pretty far, and you'd be looking at the open road through a crystal-clear windshield, to boot.

In this thread I've begun a collection of photos of various cars getting serviced, although some are far from a traditional filling station setting.

Please, add some of your own.   :)

This is not a photo but a painting, but it may have its place here. More info about the painter, Alain Bertrand, in the "Diners and drive-ins" topic where I will be posting some others.
