Gas Station Goes Nostalgic Friday For Woodward Dream Cruise - 25 Cent Gas May Be The Best Part
BIRMINGHAM (WWJ/AP) — When you're rolling by in your 5.0 with your ragtop down so your hair can blow -- or just behind the wheel of a minivan -- you can get a piece of the Woodward Dream Cruise action a month before the big day.
A Mobil gas station in Oakland County is expected to take on a more nostalgic look as part of National Collector Car Appreciation Day.
Staff with Hagerty Classic Car Magazine will wear vintage attendant uniforms while pumping gas into classic cars from 7-10 a.m. Friday at the station at 36101 Woodward Avenue in Birmingham.
Beginning at 25 cents per gallon, gas will be charged at what it cost the year the cars were made. Anyone driving a vehicle 25 years old or older will be eligible for the cheaper gas.
Attendants also will wash car windows while a jukebox plays hits from the 1950s and 1960s.
