Observed in good shape while caching. Exactly the same model as the one in Newnan.

Drove by it today, it's still there!

I agree,Still there,

Yeppers, it be there.

Although there is still a tank here, I do not think it is the original. I believe the original was torn down years ago and a larger one was built in it's place.
