    Restored Texaco Gas station in Cowan TN and is actually a small museum; store is period and there are 2 antique cars in the garage. It was closed today when I took these; when I find out when it opens I'll get more pics.

    That's fine....:roflBring on the Texaco....:clapDad and Grandpa before were Texaco dealers from way back. I pumped lot of gas out of similar vintage pumps. Lead fumes....:rofl

    When you go visit ask them why they are orienting the globes that way, dad always insisted on Texaco gas when we travelled, I have always seen them parralel to the pumps.:ear

    That's all old to me nowadays, but I don't think they ever had "Fire Chief" globes. I talked to an expert about that and he concurred but they do exist nowadays as repros.

    You can see the OEM back there on the red pump. But Yes they had Fire Chief hats and maybe even Fire Chief pedal cars. That's me in the late 50's....10 ft away from the same big sign as shown in your pics.:wink:
