A Mobil Station at the intersection of Walnut Hill Ln. and I-35E
in Dallas, TX was recently converted to Chevron.
The street level signage was changed out to "Chevron" hardware,
but the highway sign hardware was kept "Mobil" with a "Chevron" insert.

Bailey's Corner Chevron on Whidbey Island, Washington State. Located at Cultus Bay Rd. (left) and Jewett Rd. (right). Five miles southwest of Clinton. Named for the Bailey family, and prior to the building of the modern highway on Whidbey Island, Bailey Road ran over this stretch of Cultus Bay Road. Present Chevron station has been around since 2000. Was a Texaco in the 80's, then a BP from 90-94 then abandonded until 1999. Has standard Chevron pumps, but the are placed very close together, so very rarely can two cars fit on one side to make use of the two pumps. Pumps operate 24 hours.

Clinton Chevron in Clinton, WA on Whidbey Island. Located at the intersection of WA SR-525 and Bob Galbreth Road. Been in existence since 1994 when the commercial park it is in was built. The odd-looking grey paint job on the sign covers the announcement that this WAS a 24 hour Chevron. According to Legend, the owner, fed up with the Island County Sheriff spending the night in his parking lot, chasing away customers, he decided to close each night from 1am to 4am (the same hours the ferries do not run). Pumps operate 24 hours, but there is no lighting, so it is at your own risk.

Chevron station at the corner of Barrington Ave. and Sunset Blvd., Brentwood, CA. Has its own bell tower. This is one of the oldest continually operating stations in the West, and has been declared a historical architectural monument. I believe it dates from the 1920s or earlier, possibly back to the days of California Star Oil, but most certainly from when John D. Rockefeller was alive and kicking.
