Such a fine photo. Elegant, even. I remember places like that. There was a reason they called them "service stations".

"Check that oil, ma'am?"
"I believe it's fine, but that you very much."

And so on.

At the risk of dating myself, I, too, remember those days. There was something almost elegant about the exchange, a give-and-take that's sadly missing in today's pay-first-or-have-the-black-helicopters-follow-you-home.
