Missouri || The Automotive Mausoleum of Lyle Van Houtem
...lost travelers seeking a gas station will certainly find one.
Just not the kind they were probably looking for.
At the edge of Maplewood Cemetery, a perfectly preserved MPA filling station is home to a collection of 1950s-era vehicles:
Two Ford-O-Matic Crestlines, a F100 custom cab pickup truck, a Galaxie 500, and an anachronistic Mercury Grand Marquis.
All are staffed by mannequins costumed in various states of fancy dress (including three dressed as teddy bears in marching band uniforms.)
Said to be the collection of one Lyle Van Houten, who in his youth pumped gas at this very filling station, the sphinx-faced mannequins are the closest thing to a sign of life visible for miles along this road.
...and that is about all I can think to say about it. (Besides, of course, the obvious.)
