Mystery Photo


August 5 - This week's PHOTO OF THE WEEK features an old Texaco gas station that has a sign in the window "Motor Tune Ups". One of our viewers asked what the two machines between the pumps do. The photo isn't very clear, but I'll bet that at least one of our MAFCA members knows more about them.

Some think that the one on the left is an engine analyzer and the one on the right could be a spark plug cleaner. What do you think?

If you can, send an email to the webmaster.
