Re: Old Gas Stations

Slightly off topic, but I'll post it anyway.

This is a great thread! I have said many times will traveling the backroads of coastal Alabama and Florida, places that were made "obsolete" by Interstate 10, that I'd like to do a coffee table book of all the old stores / gas stations that are no longer in use, or that have been turned into something else.
