  • The property was recently sold at auction. It is a shame that the bldgs. may be demolished.

  • I always admired that building...If there were a lot more parking options around it It would make a great Bistro with steaks and burgers and possible a stage music venue...those big windows would allow a dining view both inside and out(can you just imagine)....Shelbyville would not support it tho...a meat and three would not be the option in my idea....."The Filling Station" for a name would be tho....

  • I saw and then bought my first new car which was on display in this showroom. A 1964 Galaxy 500 390XL. At a bargin price of only about $2400.00. Those were the days.

  • My mother-in-law was Florabel Potts and her father was Earl Nelson Potts, who married Henrietta Eads and later Elizabeth Arnold Puckett. He delivered mail for years in Chapel Hill. I believe Mr. Pott's brother owned part of this dealership.
