Has n up DC n The Day!
I like the Tanker in the Background.
I wonder if it was an Oil Truck or a Truck that contained Water and wet down the Roads. I no longer live in a City so I haven't seen a Street Washer in Years. Do They still have them?,or have they been replaced by Street Sweepers.Come to think of it I haven't seen a Street Sweeper in years either.
Looks like a Ford, but where did the extra tank come from? Wonder where he redirected the exhaust to.
Not Ford - rear elliptical springs.
Looks like a spring between the fender and gas tank.
Don,I'll bet you would have liked too have seen the old large IH tanker at the Old Car Festival! Bud.
Looks like the attendant has his hand on the "drain back" lever
One huge hose for only dispensing around 10 gallons. Bet you had to be on your toes watching the flow.
My second-hand recollection is that you told the attendant how much gas you wanted, then he would pump that amount of gas into the clear glass container on the top of the pump so that you could see it, then the gas would flow by gravity down the hose into your car's gas tank.
Yes Mark, I think that's how it's supposed work. Here you can see the attendant at the station is watching the sight glass as he fills up my car.
