Trust Your Car To The Man Who Wears The Star

Texaco, originally uploaded by William 74.
The Texaco Star! This is the classic Texaco "banjo" sign, which at one time was a common sight in the United States-Texaco is the only petroleum company to sell gas in all 50 states under the same branding. These days, Texaco is a regional brand (there aren't any around here anymore), and the stations that remain don't have banjo signs anymore. This one is in front of the Ambler's Texaco in Dwight, Illinois, along historic Route 66.
