Long Description:
A must visit Roadside America attraction for Mother Road trippers. There are hundreds of Gas Pumps, Route 66 Signs, & Neon's on display. These old gas pumps dispensed fuel from the old oil companies that once proliferated along route 66.
Even if you're not into old signs you'll be glad you did make a stop. Apart from the Petrofina, there are barns full of Neon clocks, antique advertising thermometer signs, more than a 100 chest freezers! & over 500 vintage model cars.

“A time-warp forest of signs for brands like Gulf, Champlin and Conoco gasoline are part of the unique private collection of Bob Mullen. He is a Cuba businessman with a penchant for accumulating and displaying old outdoor advertising, the type once seen along 66. His unusual hobby covers the outside walls and insides of two barns, plus a large room addition to his home. Trailers on Mullen’s property contain hundreds of items he has no place to display."

"The real surprise, however, is what is inside each of his two barns. Displayed along with more signs and pumps are collections of hundreds of neon clocks, thousands of antique advertising thermometer signs and over a hundred antique ice chests. Mullen also has more than 5,000 miniature Die Cast metal cars and trucks. Each is a replica of a model from the 1940s and ‘50s when Route 66 was most heavily traveled. As Mullen’s collections grew, he decided the entire accumulation was large enough to be given a name of its own. About six years ago, after seeing a sign that read “Gasoline Alley,” he began to refer to his acquisitions as “Bob’s Gasoline Alley.” Text Source: (visit link)
