This week's photo is of the Sinclair gas station that was owned by Cliff Beauregard. Today one would be looking at the front of the Marathon station owned by Jac and Candy Faith. Take note of the six-hitch team proudly pulling the Goebel Brewing Co. Wagon of Detroit. This landmark gas station has been an icon for many years at the intersection of M-33 and M-68. Some of our readers will know it as Tom's Speedway, run by Tom Smith. Some will remember it as Painter Petroleum, run by Bill Painter, and still others will remember it as Arkwood's Service Station, run by Randy Arkwood. Perry Johnson was there at one time, as was Robert Leslie. I am sure there were others that I don't remember. One would wonder what the price of gas was back then.
