In the late 50's and early 60's I worked for Will's
Motors in Delhi, Ontario,
a GM dealership that carried Esso products. I recall taking 45 gallon
full of empty Marvelube and Mineralube tins to the landfill site on
In the mid 60's I put the automotive/petroliana trade
behind me and spent 32 years with Bell Canada.
In 1982 I purchased this vehicle, an all original, fully optioned Maryland
1955 T-Bird with 12,480 miles on the odometer.
Today the odometer still reads less than 13,000 miles.
At this point in time I belonged to the Historical
Automobile Society of Canada
and now I joined the Canadian Service Station Memorabilia Association.
My original 1954 Ford was near and dear to me, as are many of our
vehicles we had as teenagers, and consequently, in 1989, I purchased
Texas 1954 Ford Sunliner. In the subsequent ground-up restoration,
I utilized some parts that I had saved from my original 1954 Ford.
I now became more actively involved in my collecting interests,
frequenting flea markets and auction sales. Ultimately, due to the
volume of items that I had acquired, I was forced to start vending.
THE HOBBY HAD GOTTEN OUT OF HAND!!! That's kind of where I am
