Love the Wide White wall tires. Any guess as to what the two cars in the photo would be worth today?

since i've been a Nebraskan for 40 yrs, i'm suppose to like this stuff, but i just don't feel right about selling snake oil to unsuspecting fools. as an engineer, i just don't understand the philosophy of using a more expensive fuel that has a lower heating value with undesired engine/system response in mass quantities.?? oh that's right, the goveernment is involved.

If the photo caption read "Illinois State Historical Society" I"d say that was Al Capone and Bugs Malone standing there.

As I remember,from many years ago, they were assigned to pump gas,check oil, cooling water, tire pressure, and wipe the windows for customers. The business owner would not be able to compete in the automobile fueling business unless these free services were provided along with the fuel and "Green Stamps" and free trinkets such as water glasses and car wash coupons were also offered to keep customers coming back to the business.

I gave service station work a try around 1976/77... I told the owner I would not handle money, pump gas are wash cars I would only do wrench work this went well until it started to cool off in October/Nov... Things slowed down he got rid of a few gofers so I had to handle money, pump gas, wash cars and do the wrench work... After a few weeks of going home with wet cold feet I checked out of their :lol: The pay was not bad at that time around $7 a hour,, I think the labor rate then was $6 a hour...

Prior to that job I worked at a Firestone tire shop same pay and EZ work... Every job was menu priced you do the job by script if it did not fix it the job was shipped... Why folks would pay for a tune up (are any other work) that did not fix their car and have to go somewhere else after paying for this work I never figgerd out but they always returned for more of it...

I spent a portion of my 'formative' years as a 'gas jockey'. When you checked the oil and water and windsheild washer bucket, you also whipped of the air filter (if dirty showed it to the driver) and fan belt(s). We got a small commission (I repeat small) on any stuff sold. In my spare time I did tires, oil changes and cleaned the shop for a whopping $.85 per hour. AHH, them wuz the daze !!

You got paid by the hour?!

I got $15 a week at my dad's Mobil station in 1974. Guess I should have asked for a raise!
