Golden Fleece

The Golden Fleece is variously a remnant from Greek mythology, a reference to an ancient gold mining technique, or an Australian Oil Company which was purchased by a multinational brand around thirty years ago and therefore passed into mythology as well.

Occasionally one still comes across a remnant from days gone by, like this petrol station standard in Maleny, but even these are becoming a rare site now.

Ironically, the time is fast approaching when oil will be as precious as gold.

Cool. I haven't seen one of these in years. The closest petrol station to my house was a Golden Fleece, so it brings back great memories of going on car trips as a child.
