Does the ‘55 have ad springs( or a mother-in-law) on the left?

listing to Port?

Reminds me I have to do my rear shocks on the 54. Botommed out somewhat I put a heavy newlyweds couple on the back seat. Wondering what abou to happen on Wednesday, April the 18th? Circus 🎪? Beautiful clear sky on any town USA.

Found this other picture on the net. Must be the same car.These are probably the service guys: one to pump gas ️ second to check your tires, third to clean your windshield and the last to check the oil... probably all working together at the same time. The snowman has not melt yet!

Think I have seen this one posted before, but I like it

 

Agree -- those Shell stations used to be ubiquitous around here when I was a kid in the '60s...

 I fondly remember those days!  And washing the windshield in the summer.

I remember sweater girls, penny loafers,  and bobby sox much more  fondly than washing windows.

You worked at a full service too eh, what brand. I worked at a Texaco. And I swear , a gorgeous blonde 30 something winked at me one day, was afraid to even smile back. I thought about her for days.

and looks like I still am 😆

 Yep, a large independent one.  They were all full service in the '50s.  I started in 1953.   A 16 year old country boy watching the world go by.

    A 14 or 15 yer old from Henryetta , TX.  And, yes I still think of ner from time to time.

 

 Fellow learned a lot, if he watched and listened.  Such as , from the assistant manager, honesty is always best. As well as his version of  "the journey is more joy than the destination" . As that applied to the girls.

and that movie brings back even more memories and connects with  the memory of the blond at the service station. First time seeing the movie The Graduate was at USMC Motor Transport School Camp LeJeune NC where the food was served without  the libido killing saltpeter as had been the case at Parris Island. Gentlemen pitch your tents!!!
