Stuckey's - RELAX, REFRESH, REFUEL.

VAV!/November 25, 2014 Stuckey's, what's not to love? Since the 1930's, generations of Americans have known and loved Stuckey's as a venerable roadside tradition!  Stuckey's humble beginning was launched as a Pecan stand in Eastman, Georgia,  in 1937 by W.S. Stuckey, Sr.  That little stand and others like it soon became THE mecca for folks traveling down America's super sonic highway in the never ending quest of adventure.  You could bet the rear wheel of your 1946 Ford Super Deluxe Woody Wagon that Stuckey's would have everything a traveler craved, from a car fill up and restroom to souveniers, hot snacks, soft drinks, and pecan candy bars!   Easily recognized by the pitched roof and teal blue shingles, Stuckeys was an empire! 

 

Roadside Americana - Nostalgic Scale Models

Pictured above:  White Haven Motor Lodge in Overland Park, Kansas VAV!/November 25, 2014 Brad Moore is an architectural graduate who lives in Overland Park, Kansas. One of Brad's interests is professional model-building, a past time which has kept him busy for more than 25 years.   His focus is on yesterdays' roadside Americana.  All of Brad's models, are hand crafted from his own design, right down to the most minute details incorporating cardstock, plastic styrene, and real glass. No attention is spared on the details, either. He takes care to add features that make his final product as realistic as the real thing.
