The dealership formerly operated as Pirtle-Howerton Automotive until new owners Tim Weiland and Jack Pirtle purchased the franchise.
The new Shelbyville Automotive will sell Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Ford as well as pre-owned vehicles of all makes and models. The dealership will also have a parts department and a service department that will perform repairs and maintenance on vehicles of all types.
