A Change On Palm Drive

Gas Modern (4934)

Gas Modern (4935)

Word comes to me that this landmark/eyesore midcentury modern gas station on Palm Drive will be torn down within about two weeks. Those who object are welcome to rush in with the thousands required to restore it to other-than-eyesore quality.

The good news is that this is one of a pair. A matching gas station was built in Santa Monica, and I believe it is still standing, and never had those faux shingles plastered around the roof.

Not another of my favorites doomed! This is too much to bear.
