Giant Basketball Gas Tank, Near Exit 43A, Fisher Fwy, Detroit, Michigan
An oil tank on I-75 in River Rouge, Michigan, is painted to look like a giant basketball. It’s decorated on one side with the Detroit Pistons logo (celebrating their 2004 championship) and, on the other, with the WNBA Detroit Shock team logo. It’s the perfect use for the large, spherical tank that might have otherwise been an eyesore.
Now, where’s the world’s largest hoop?
