This scene, in a side street off the highway, grabbed my attention as I drove by at 50 mph. Red does that. It grabs you and makes you look again. Corporate logos use red for a reason.
These are functional items covered in corporate logos, but they are beautiful. They make me appreciate why "vintage" is desirable. The current versions of these items may have greater functionality, but less beauty. They lack the shine and personality of the older models.
I don't think gas cost either 29 or 32 cents in my lifetime, but I remember when Coca-Cola came in shapely glass bottles that felt good in your hand. I remember popping off the cap with a mounted Coca-Cola cap remover--the tilt, the flick of the wrist, the pop of the cap, the sound of the fizz. It tasted better then.
