Bomber Gas Station 2.0

I've posted content on the B-17 gas station in Milwaukee, Oregon before.  I was pleased to see The Old Motor has put together a wonderful feature on it. As I've mentioned previously I recall vividly see the station as a kid, my Dad always enjoyed pointing it out. As is often the case as a small kid the whole station seemed so much bigger as a kid.

I did a fair amount of research on this a few years ago and don't recall finding B-17 Alliance or the Art Lacey Story. I've heard several stories about how the B-17 station happened but I don't recall hearing about the $5 bet that set it all off.
