In an attempt to introduce their brand to North Carolina, the Quality Oil Company built eight shell-shaped Shell service stations in the Winston-Salem area in the early 1930s and this is the only one still standing. Despite being closed, the Shell station still sees tons of traffic: the last time we were there, three different cars pulled up to take photos.

In case you're wondering, when we put our ear up to it, we didn't hear the ocean. All we could hear was the passing traffic. Bummer.
