We visited Shea’s gas station in early June 2015 on a route 66 bus tour. Sadly it was closed and surrounded by barriers. There were notices on the barriers with a date set for everything to be sold at auction. Sadly we were probably one of the last tours to see it .

They were closed when we go there so I don't know if there's a lot more when they're open. Good photo op for the Route 66 traveler.

It's a mess of junk behind a chain link fence. It may have been quite notable at one time, but right now it is just an eyesore. Such a shame.

One of our must see attractions on our Route 66 trip. Was just what we expected, well worth looking out for, the only thing that spoiled it was that it was fenced off so you couldn't get very close to the memorabilia.

You might be able to buy it. Mr Shea collected a lot of motor and gasoline items and ran this until his death. I believe his family would like to sell it.
