New Mod - Flux Capacitor

Well, I didn't actually travel back in time. However, my dad recently purchased an old gas station in the middle of the country that had set vacant for a very long time. So far he has restored the outside, and is working on turning it into a summertime cruise-in spot where people can get pizza, ice cream and soda.

The station looks really cool and people have been driving from all over to take pictures of their hot-rods at the site. I decided that while my car is a little more modern, it would be cool to get some pics so I snapped some with my iPhone while I was home on Easter. Sorry for the poor quality, but I thought these were cool photos to share.

Thats sounds like a great idea. Thats one of the up and coming things here in Charleston. We have about 3 old and retro gas stations that were turned into restaurants and they were a huge hit. I love the old Shell pumps!

That sounds awesome. I wish I had brought a decent camera and a clean car. Hopefully a photo shoot sometime this spring.

The pumps were restored, but won't be connected to any tanks. Just for looks and to attract people to come.

The price on the pump is $0.29/gallon

$0.29/gallon... would be nice nowadays. That would put race gas at around $0.95/gallon.

If you look at the facebook link there are pictures towards the bottom of the page from old street rods that look pretty cool.
