Fantastic filling stations /
ISBN: 0760310645. OCLC Number:

MBI Pub.,. St. Paul, MN :. 2002.

An attendant whose name was embroidered on a patch above his shirt pocket greeted motorists who pulled up to 6the pumps barking the classic line, "Fill 'er up!" Around back, the restrooms were clean - but not too clean - and somewhere near the door was a soda machine full of glass bottles.
