Gearhead Curios in Galena holds its official ribbon-cutting

Though it’s been open for more than a year, Gearhead Curios in downtown Galena, Kansas, held its official ribbon-cutting on Saturday.

The ceremony commemorated five years of renovations on the old Texaco site by owner Aaron Perry.

Rhys Martin of the Oklahoma Route 66 Association was there when the deed was done:

Perry closed the deal on the 1939 gas station at 520 S. Main St. (aka Route 66) in the fall of 2018.

Since then, he’s added a Doc Hudson replica from the “Cars” movie, installed neon lighting and planted a modified Big Boy statue, along with a lot of face-lift work on the station itself.
