I remember seeing the Bomber station, but I can't remember where it was.

A surplus B-17 bomber was flown to Milwaukie in 1947 and installed as a canopy over some gas pumps. The bomber was taken down August 13, 2014, now considered to be too valuable to be a gas station awning.

Yup, I remember the gas wars in California back in the 60's. Those were the days.

Aren't you glorifying evil oil and gasoline ? Typical of you racist white guys. Living in your 1950s racist paradise. Very soon AmeriKA will have solar powered charging stations, and transgendered robots will serve you bio-engineered soy burgers, and the earth will be at rest, and we won't never have no more hurricanes, himmicanes, or droughts or floods, and the ice caps will refreeze and the little baby polar bear cubs will have plenty of baby seal pups to eat.

A friend of mine had one of those VW camper vans and that was pretty cheap to run too.

That might have been where I saw it. I was in Milwaukie in the early 60's.
