    1950's Service Station Video (Colour) - Standard Oil

    I pumped gas at a local Mobil station in the late 60's. It was SOP to clean the windshield, check fluid levels, and give out free gifts. Drinking glasses, silverware, or S&H Green Stamps.

    Cars that used to be "common", but are gone now

    It depends where you live. If you live where they salt the roads, most cars don't last 10 years before rotting out. Everytime I go to the southwest, I am amazed at the older cars still on the road. Rust is the culprit!
