Texaco
One of the LUG's has a Texaco station on display. I've always liked it and wanted to build one. Within the past few years, ChevronTexaco Corp sold off most of their Texaco service stations in NJ to Shell Oil Corp, with a complete pull-out of Texaco from the NJ area this year. I've always liked the Texaco brand and decided to finally make a Texaco station. This is one of two that I am planning on building, with the possibility of a 3rd. This particular station is a modified version of the System 2000 Texaco service station. I plan on building a 1950's era Texaco with their infamous Banjo Texaco sign. If I decide to build a 3rd Texaco, it will be the "Matawan" style, built in the late 60's into the 70's.
About this creation

















View of the convenience store area. Curbing still need to be installed. But, the Emergency Shut Off button is installed and operational on the corner of the building.










View of the left bay. Oil cans are on the shelf. Flooring and lift to be installed. I just may use the car jack since a lift will cause the car to hit the garage door if the door is in the up position.


View from the right bay door. Once the floor is put down and more details, such as a tire stand are installed, the bay area will be complete.





A look inside the convenience store area. The refrigerators are installed an stocked with cold drinks. At the bottomof the picture is a display rack.


View of the cashier area and front door.

Quoting Nate Gonzales Pretty awesome! Can you make any other brands
I'm sure I can. This was my first attempt at a gas station. My specialty is fire apparatus, as you may have seen. : )

Quoting Eric and Lawson B Robert, this is one of the most complete gas stations I've seen on MOCPages. You really did try to capture all of the features of a modern station. Texaco did the same here in California. I liked their gas too. Keep up the great work. Regards, Eric.
Thank you ELB! I still have some little details to add, such as an air pump and decals. We used to have a bunch of Texaco stations near me. Now, its mostly Lukoil, Exxon, Shell and Delta, with a few Gulf, Sunoco, Hess, Getty and Enrite stations mixed in.

Quoting Zachary Keenan Very nice work. There used to be a Texaco by the ball field i played at for over a decade. Baseball makes me think of Texaco sometimes lol. Im curious, whats the gigantic red building in the background of the 12th picture down?
Ahhh, that is the rear of the Fire Academy. I never moved it off the table when I was working on it. But it is ready to go to its new home in another room of my house. : )

Quoting Matt Stoltz Nice job Bob. I really came out nice. Are you going to use it for an incident or just for display. Otherwise nice job as there was a lot of detail put into this. Keep up the outstanding work.
Thanks! I still have to add decals and interior details, as well as some rails for the left bay door. I may do a little incident, like a car fire at the pumps. I like the gas station too much to destroy it.

The bays and convenience store interior needs more work, as I am waiting for parts to arrive.
