Honolulu, Hawaii, 1958

Published in blog.hemmings.com

No gas shortage in these two photos that Terry Koenig’s father took in August of 1958 and that The Old Motor recently published. Rather, the reason for the lines was the exact opposite: The Flying A station in eastern Honolulu had just opened and had plenty of gas to sell – and even to give away. Probably good, considering few of the vehicles in the photo could legitimately be considered fuel efficient. What do you see here?
