The garage was an authorized Ford dealership and a vibrant business at the intersection of routes 77 and 114. The garage is out of business now, but the old brick building remains, as do the memories. Other memorabilia include old ledgers, brochures and original sales receipts of new and used cars dating as early as 1930s, parts, an old sign and other artifacts.
