Gene's Deep Rock
It's the last remaining full-service gas station in the Green Bay metro-area. Gene's Deep Rock on Main Street, which opened in 1974, has new owners that refuse to let go of that tradition.

A tire gauge rests in Cure's shirt pocket.
Cure, left, gives a windshield wash while DeShambo fills up the tank for Dolores Peters of New Franken at Gene's. "[Full service is] why I come here," says Peters. "I've got a bad back. It's hard to get in and out of the car. So the young guys are doing me a favor."
