This is a Gulf themed drive-in speaker set that I just recently finished up. It's not the first Gulf themed set I've done, but ever since my road trip through Texas last year I've been wanting to do another one. In Waco, I visited the historic Gulf service station located 1425 Washington Avenue. What a cool looking place! It was originally built in 1929 and was restored in 2014. Nobody was there when I stopped (it was a weekend), so I snapped a few photos and had my wife take one of me. If you ever make it out to Waco, Texas, make sure you drive out to check this great looking gasoline station out!
The last set of Bluetooth Gulf themed speakers I did had a "That Good Gulf Gasoline" decal on the base, which was painted white. This time I wanted the color to POP more so I opted for a solid orange base and the navy blue ring. The orange circular base just makes since, considering Gulf's orange disc logo and signs. I think it turned out really well! Like my other sets, this in Bluetooth enabled, has an MP3 player, and comes loaded with over 100 vintage adds from the 50's and 60's - including a dozen different Gulf Gasoline commercials!

Finally, a few more photos from the Historic Gulf Gasoline Station in Waco, Texas!
And finally, one with ME!
