I was heading out of Jackson when down the road I saw this Standard Oil Sign. When I drove up to it, I saw the little service station with the old pump. It made me smile and I had to stop and take a photo. It reminds me of being a kid riding in my dad’s Delta 88 and pulling into Skip’s Service Station. Hearing the bell DING DING and a guy in overalls and a rag come out to pump the gas. They had the rack of old school oil cans and the metal spout to jam into them. Thank god they came up with plastic bottles with a screw top. I think I could never do the old cans without making a mess. Anyways, I like seeing the old gas and oil signs, pumps, and stations. They remind me of a time long gone. With many new cars going back to the “retro” look I am surprised none of the current convenience store gas stations have not done a 50’s inspired service station themed look.
