Maine couple opens Shell gas museum

OXFORD, Maine (AP) — Maine’s newest museum looks a lot like a gas station.

Lamb’s Antique Gas Station Museum, which opened to the public over the weekend, is dedicated to all things related to Shell gasoline.

Jim Lamb’s grandfather once owned a Shell station and Lamb caught the memorabilia bug after somebody gave him a key chain featuring his grandfather’s Shell station logo.

After that he began collecting Shell collectibles ranging from old gas pumps and oil can racks to matchbooks, oil filters and cans of Shell brake fluid and antifreeze.

He and his wife set up a re-creation of a vintage Shell station next to their mobile home parts business, Parts & Pieces, to house the museum.
