Here's an old gas station made out of stone. This gas station is located somewhere in Illinois.






Gas N' Go
Ashtabula, OH

This "Flying Saucer" Gas Station sniffs of space-age architecture all around. Unfortunately, today's autos never quite made it to the Jetsons stage, so this gas station closed and remains defunct. A roadside classic!

Some of the space age architecture resemble space ports and flying saucers. Imagine driving down the street at night on your way to the neighborhood food store and catching a glimpse of a flying sauce out of the corner of your eye. Unfortunately, at least in the case of this saucer, it can no longer happen. The Gas n' Go gas station has been demolished. This Gas N' Go in Ashtabula, OH originally opened in 1966. Ray Keyes was the architect. See other Midwest Mid-Century Modern buildings at Mid-Century Modern Midwest.

What's a travel down the roadside without a look-see at some vintage petrol pumps. Especially these that are worn yet in still in decent condition.
