Vintage gas pump- the old “Gilbarco Calco-meter”, staring into the sun under the Orange Crush sign.

Made back in the day when it was impossible to imagine gas prices ever being higher than 99 cents per gallon. I never understood why gas was measured in a tenth of a cent back in the day, but you can see how this one was retired at only $.69 a gallon.

Dang.
