In the sixties, a series of Hi-Octane gasoline stations in the Atlanta, Georgia area sold 99 and 92 octane fuel and used Ford car give away promotions as a way of building traffic at a number of its locations in and around the City. Hi-Octane also cashed paychecks only for customers and because of it probably filled up a lot of gas tanks on Fridays for its patron’s weekend activities. The last photo in this post gives a view of one of the Hi-Octane filling stations displaying a give away 1960 Ford Starliner.
The automobiles that the chain of stations gave away were supplied by East Point Ford that was located in the Atlanta suburb East Point at 2139 Main Street. This Ford dealership also used similar promotions which may indicate that the stations were possibly owned by the car and truck seller and were profit-makers that also helped to sell more cars.
