Thread: What old business do you remember in OKC?

  1. #1

    Default What old business do you remember in OKC?

    Remember the old OTASCO? and what was the logo name on the oil cans, and plug wire boxes?

    How about Scott Chevrolet? what was there address and phone number? and what was the little slogan they had back then?

    Ray's barber shop - home of the hairless haircut. Ray had vacuums attached
    to every clipper on each station. It was in the Highlander Center on SW
    59th.

    Stewart's Barber Shop on S. Blackwelder. I still remember the comic books
    I read while awaiting execution, I mean a haircut.

    Haircuts were like living "Night of the Living Dead" for me.

    V&H was on Robinson, right? I always wanted them to installed dual
    exhaust on my cars. Dad wouldn't have any part of it. Since I never had
    any cash, they never got to do it.

    Of course it's only word of mouth about Jesse's not being legitimate.

    Don't remember the guy with no legs...did know Jack Patton( little person) and his brother Russell (worked for TG&Y). Jack passed away some time ago. I've often wondered what happened to the chair he built with the pipes and everything that were on it. I remember when they just had a dirt floor and chain hoist...How about you Carlton????you were there with me more than once.

    That's AWFUL! I stressed over about 500 colors of blue for my '59
    Peugeot.Found this incredibly dark blue and told them that's what I
    wanted. I went to pick it up and it was a mess. Nothing like the picture
    hahaha!

    Hey! My '31 Model A was spray painted by the guy's wife who rebuilt it in
    '66. He was out of town and she "did him a favor!" It still has the same
    paint
