Largest Stack of Empty Oil Cans

From the "I thought it was going to be a disappointment" category: the Largest Stack of Empty Oil Cans in Casselton, ND was not. I pulled into town and asked about it. I thought I was going to get a bunch of weird looks, but they knew what I was taking about and where it was. Loegering Manufacturing is the proud (if reluctant) owner of the stack. Was built in 1933, where a Sinclair gas station once occupied the land. It measures approximately 45 feet high and a width 18 feet. It was built around an old windmill and has a slight lean to it, "that gets bigger every day" according to the receptionist at the plant.
