Our 1920s- style gas station pays tribute to the many small stations around Los Angeles from 1910- 1930.

This façade was originally on display at the California Car Cover showroom in Chatsworth, California.

Vintage Gas StationWhen the business moved to Simi Valley, a beneficial relationship between California Car Cover and the Automobile Driving Museum resulted in the donation of the station to the Museum.

Sunset Gas was carefully deconstructed, transported, and rebuilt here over the course of the next year.
