Absolutely those (50’s - 60’s) were great years for so many things in life.

The local down the street gas stations where you purchase gas, oil, tires and wiper blades, plus maybe had those “service stickers” glued to your door jam.

I have fond memories of Mom, Dad or myself driving into a “filling station” over the black cord that would signal a “ding ding” to who was on duty.
Filler up please as they check the oil and clean the windows.

Today, all that wonderful doesn’t exist, but we have our classic cars that help take us back to those days.

I just love these places. I grew up in and around them, as did much of our family. So many fond memories!

Of course, the driveway bells were a contentious point. I was always told not to drive over the hoses when delivering parts. Some shops, it just could not be avoided. Great way to get your ass chewed by a shop owner

From my friend Scott Mancini's '69 GP SJ. This was likely the very first oil change. A little hard to make out, but it reads 1827 miles on date 9/29/69.

That’s a lot of information on that door.

The who’s who of service stickers.
Kendall
Gulf
Havoline
Another at the bottom
Remnants of one highlighted with red.

I cleaned up your photo.
