Good Morning Gentle Readers,
And now, a word from our sponsor.
TWC has a vintage Mohawk gas pump with a similar logo in the garage that's been awaiting restoration for a long time. Originally installed in a filling station, after modernization in the 1930's the pump ended up servicing a cattle ranch just outside of Sonora Ca until the 1940's or early 1950's.
TWC first gazed longingly at it thirty years ago and at the time it was remarkably well preserved. Unfortunately over the intervening years, the weather wasn't kind. I ended up with custody thanks to the generosity of my uncle, but by then that old thick lead based paint had begun to come off in big curled chunks that look like they dregs of a dried up mud puddle in the desert.
