Bob’s Gasoline Alley
The largest collection of Historic Route 66 gasoline memorabilia in the mid-west was started in 1995 by owner Bob Mullen and his wife Darlene both lovers of memorabilia from the ’50s/60’s era. Bob’s love and fascination for the old highway Route 66 started in his youth. Living next to the highway he enjoyed sitting on his front porch watching the traffic going up and down the highway, wondering where they were all going in such a big hurry.
An amazing collection of original vintage signs are on display advertising the most popular brands of petroleum, alcohol, and soft drink beverages. Many of the brands displayed no longer exist in the market place today.
An amazing collection of bright neon lights of every shape and size abound. The neon lights are in the form of tavern signs, store clocks, or signs depicting your favorite beverage, all promoting campaign slogans reminiscent of that time.
Bob’s Gasoline Alley has a unique collection of, such as miniature Donkey’s, Llamas, the list goes on and on. Bob and his wife also collect miniature Die Cast toy automobiles, mostly depicting those reminiscent of the ’50s and ’60s. They presently have around 2000 different styles and colors in their collection. Open by appointment.
