Flying-A gas station, Los Angeles, CaliforniaI don’t know when this Flying-A gas station was around, or where it stood, but you can bet that it was hard to ignore if you drove past it at night!

  1. Love this! And love you. We got over an inch of rain during the night – hot damn!

    So much detail – the guy inside, the canvas-backed “director’s” chair outside, the Champion spark plugs sign on the back building…love it!

    Here’s another shot of a Flying A station (looks like the ’20s) If your Model T has a flat or worse, there’s a garage conveniently across the way. Note the intricate scroll-work on the little roof above the gas pumps. Why don’t we see stuff like this nowadays?

    We’re having a day of rain up here (SF Bay Area) with the sun popping out now and then, a repeat of last weekend. Can’t complain after too many years of dry weather.

    Happy day before Halloween!
