History:

Good Luck Oil Co. AKA (GLOCO) History Since 1931 > Founder Amous Wilemon started his business with a $600 loan from his aunt. He rented an old gas station on Maple Ave near Downtown Dallas that had a Old Mule Shoe hanging above the door. That's where the idea to name the station Good Luck Service came from. He Opened for Business, Provided Excellent customer service, plus his Unique Advertising Campaign. And the rest is History!

Good Luck Service was a Discount Gas chain, The RACETRAC of its day. His brothers, Famous and Foy, also worked at the station in the beginning. They had the most popular chain in town because of the Low prices and Great locations, with Fast Old Fashion customer service. They had their own Tanker Trucks, and hauled Oil and Gas back from The East Texas Oil fields, the Saudi Arabia of America.

During its Hey Day, there were 53 GLOCO stations serving DFW. Three of which were of the Unique and Beautiful Art Deco Style. They were each a little different from one another, but mostly similar. The first one opened in the winter of 1939, Truly a Roadside Attraction. Two more were to follow, all on the edges of the CBD (Central Business District), all designed by Amous Wileman, both of which are now torn down. Only the first one remains. It is one of the Finest Examples of an Art Deco gas station in the World. Although it is no longer a gas station, it Stands as a Proud Monument to The Man who Built and Operated it, And to the Texas Oil and Gas Industry.
