Location #2

The Bavarian Auto Haus at 1717 Shell Beach Rd. I'm still researching this location, but as near as I can determine at this point, this was originally Lane's Chevron station and garage in the late 1950's. It later became a 76 station. Because of some, now cemented over, very narrow car pits in the adjacent garage building, I believe that this is much older.

Close up of the air/water utility, and the box on the left was for taking credit card payments.

Add as it appeared in the 1960 phone book.
