Back in the day when there were full service gas stations, I’d pay the extra dime a gallon to bring them back......

When I filled up one afternoon at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon a few years ago - I crashed the second annual Pig Party - I was surprised to find out the attendant pumped the gas AND cleaned the windshield. But he was nowhere as nice looking!

@devo ,

I think you meant to show a different page from that old advert: the upper corner of that last one says, "Thongs p. 66."

Again, we're only looking at the Land Cruiser and the old gas pump, right ?!

If I can find it and scan it, I have a picture of me testing the ground on the bed of Soda Lake near Zzyzx after crossing the Mojave on the Mojave Road. My blue '83 FJ40. My buddy had a red '71 FJ40 but opted to take his 4WD Tacoma instead (one of the first in SoCal)=Three days without touching pavement except for 1-2 miles for a gas stop halfway. Woulda been '82 or so.
