Latest Tucumcari gas-station makeover is complete

The latest old gas station in Tucumcari, N.M., to receive a makeover has been completed.

This building, which now houses Four Season Pest Control, has been repainted to resemble an old-time Magnolia station.

A group of volunteers has given nostalgic paint jobs to more than a half-dozen abandoned or repurposed gas stations along Route 66 in Tucumcari. It’s a cheap way to dress up eyesore properties along the Mother Road. Such an effort deserves to be copied.

Tucumcari also will host its annual Christmas Parade of Lights on Saturday night, Dec. 17.
