Road Name History:
When the company that was to be known as Gulf was born in 1901 with an oil discovery in Spindletop, Texas, the primary commercial fuel was coal. By 1903, the age of mechanization had arrived and it was now up to the petroleum industry to keep pace, for the age could not proceed without it. Gasoline development, into which Gulf invested millions of dollars, responded to advances in automotive technology to make the modern motorcar possible. Within a dozen years of Spindletop, Gulf scored notable firsts with the world?s first drive-in service station, complimentary Gulf road maps and over water drilling at Ferry Lake. In 1917, the Gulfstream went into World War I service, along with the rest of Gulf's tanker fleet.

Gulf Oil, now headquartered in Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts was purchased by ArcLight Capital Partners, LLC, an industry leading Private Equity Sponsor, and has since merged with Petroleum Products Corporation. With an extensive distribution network, the company supplies motor fuels through 17 owned and operated terminals and more than 1,800 Gulf branded gas stations and service stations, as well as heating oil, diesel fuel, jet fuel and kerosene, across the East and Gulf Coasts. Through its highly diversified assets and experienced management team, Gulf plans to expand its footprint throughout the Gulf Coast and eventually through North America.

Brand/Importer Information:
Focused on the production of HO and N Scale post World War II to 1970s era North American vehicles, the Sylvania, Ohio based Classic Metal Works was founded in 1997, by William J. Giacci.

Primarily constructed out of die-cast metal, Mini Metals CMW products are factory assembled and decorated.
