For Love of the Automobile!
Welcome to Lakeside Storage!
One sunny Saturday, we got our vintage kicks...but not on Route 66! On the west side of Provo, Utah...not too far from the Boat Harbor...is a storage business called Lakeside Storage. The owner has a deep and abiding love affair with the automobile...specifically the art of the gas station. Since we weren't customers of the business, we asked at the office for permission to walk in and take a look around. So much vintage happiness! It made me want to pack up the car and hit the road...find another piece of Route 66 to explore! That, my friends, is what summertime is all about!
Road Art Gallery!
I love the re-purposed Phillips 66 sign!
Every corner was filled with color...I could hardly believe the variety!
All the old pumps just happened to have glass tops in perfect condition.
I think the collector was able to find reproductions from a restoration specialist.
My favorite...Superman's phone booth!
The glass was too little hazy from recent rains to get a clear picture of the Man of Steel.
I'm itchin' to travel somewhere...
PS...A few Vintage Vacation graphics to get you in the mood...
