Sinclair Gas Station converted into bachelor pad

I got a kick out of this, so I figured I'd share.

I agree. I thought I was being unique hanging old advertisements up in my garage... This place is over the top. Ironically enough, I don't see a good place to wrench on ones car.

Hahaha, I don't know about the hot plate in the men's room, but I certainly would make the most room possible for my cars, kind of a waste of those two big doors.

That is a really cool place and kudos to him for creating the nostalgic atmosphere.

After the Wife and I first got together we were looking for an old gas station or restaurant to turn into a place to live but leaving the look everywhere possible. We found an old station in a great little town in Central Texas but one of the requirements by the city?/state?/feds? (don't remember) was to have the buried gas storage tanks dug up and disposed of. We put a pencil to it and the $$$$$$'s didn't create a possibility for us so we passed. It was a corner station on a large lot and would have been perfect except for the regs and restrictions.

contaminated soil ?

And when He wants to sell it some one will want a soil test and find out that the city will want a couple million to clean up the whole neighbor hood from rain spread contamination. clean up is expensive.

I can only imagine how much that would cost. I don't think I could ever convince my old lady to move into anything other than a house...

I think a c-cab would look pretty nice in there

I wondering the same thing. Maybe it's on county land? Do you think you'd encounter the same issue?

I agree, it needs a car inside somewhere, but it is very cool.

It states that it is a "GUY PAD" rental,, so obviously the person renting it could install his own touches,
we have a couple of old gas stations locally that have been turned into resturants,, and they do a pretty brisk business,, have car shows a couple times a year,, and pretty good burgers

howdy's kits

Howdy ledbetter has an award winning upholstery business in Fremont, Calif and had a Gas station Kit you could put to gether in various sizes. A lot of the old gas stations were made from metal panels, prefabbed and pre painted.

a lot of those panels were ceramic coated like your mother's washing machine in the 60s before powder coating
