Sunday Signs


Vega, Texas

And I had just filled up in the previous town.


The general consensus on the Internet is that 1999 
was the last time gasoline was under a dollar a gallon.
To think this sign has stood here like this for over 14 years.
Darn good paint that has held up well in hot Texas sun.

it obviously was an expense spared by leaving the sign there for prosperity

Something to feel nostalgic about....

Yes a pity that the price is not of the same quality as the paint.

I wonder how many folks pull in thinking they've hit the mother load.

This picture is very good. I look at and think "It's an old Exxon, then I start thinking about the town and the people living there."
