Description: The jalopy coughed and sputtered into Mel Jinny's service station. Mel Jinny, a handsome woman with a bandana, looking a bit like Rosie, the Riveter, came out and shouted to old Joe,Â "Joe, you let that girl run dry again?" "Fraid so, Miss Jinny. Mel shook her head and looked at Joe with those azure blue eyes. She'd always had a soft spot for Joe. He was a kind soul but a little simple when it came to solutions. Mel, of course, being an owner of a Filling station in the fifties was sharp as a tack. She had to be. She was a woman in a man's world. Here, buddy, I'm gonna give you this old can and I'm gonna spot your first fill up." Thanks Miss Jinny", Joe said as he tipped his sweat brimmed hat. His cheeks turning a slight shade of scarlet. Joe drove off grateful and gassed, but a little melancholy. It had taken him hours to drive all that gas out of his car so he'd have an excuse to see Mel Jinny and grab a ten cent coke from the old red stand up machine. Dang, now I'm going to have to drive all night, he thought to himself... This five gallon oil can is in as found condition. Great for a nostalgia meets new age project. As found condition.
