Oh, my goodness, gracious, me! That surely brings back the memories. Ah, for the good old days when a courteous young man in a freshly pressed uniform would greet you as soon as you pulled up to the pump. While he filled your tank, he'd wash your windshield, check your oil, the air pressure in your tires and the water in your radiator. (Yes, I remember black and white television and eight-track tapes, too.)

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one left that remembers those days

if you look closely, you'll notice the hose that dinged when you drove over it, to let the attendant know someone was there


"service with a smile" not only that, they gave you S&H Greenstamps, and probably a drinking glass

remember "gas wars"?, when 2 competing stations would try to undercut each other, sometimes it would go as low as 22-24 cents a gallon trying to get you to buy their gas, now they act like they're doing you a favor selling you gas for $4 a gallon

We're dating ourselves, but yes I remember those gas wars. I also remember riding around town as a child with my mother in her 1965 Buick Wildcat Convertible. To use the vernacular, that thing would run like a scalded ape! The state trooper clocked her at 135mph on the freeway one night. (I wasn't in the car at the time!) She was drag-racing a Riveria. I inherited her lead foot, it seems. What I wouldn't give for a V8 and a stretch of open road! (And a Swiss bank account to pay for the gasoline!)

I remember getting drinking glasses for filling up. I also remember getting glassware in boxes of oatmeal and towels in boxes of detergent.

I've licked a few pages of Greenstamps in my day, too as well as the pink-colored Scotty Stamps. Thanks for inspiring a side trip down Nostalgia Lane.:old:

well I was riding around with mom in a 60 Ford Galaxie, one of my first cars was a 65 Electra 4dr HT
I'm lucky enough to have an old boat with a V8 (68 Dodge Monaco) but unfortunatly, I don't have a swiss bank account either, so it sits most of the time
actualy, a recent trip to the gasstation to put gas in it, was what inspired the TEXACO, as I was pumping in that $4 a gallon gas I started thinking ' boy I remember the day................."
my son thinks I'm lying when I say " I remember when you could buy enough gas to cut grass all day, a soda for when you got thirsty, a candybar, and a bag of chips, and still have change left from a dollar, and if you workrd all day and made $15(5 yards $3 a yard) you were rich(for a kid)"

he usually replies"yea yea dad, now can I have the $50 for the video game?"

BTW I remember the towels in the box of soap also
