Former Crestview car dealership gets new life

Published: Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 06:26 PM.

Today the building houses a gunsmith’s shop that repairs weapons for law enforcement agencies and private owners.

Inside the cavernous former auto repair shed, comfortable theatrical-style seating is lined up facing the auction block.

Near the flip-up chairs, appraisers pore over antique furniture and vehicles in preparation for auctions held every first and third Saturday of the month.

Ever since Gerlach Motors leveled the land and built one of the city's earliest car dealerships in the 1930s, the building has been a local landmark. Today it has assumed a whole new life.

A 1940s, authentically restored World War II Willy's Jeep offered for sale on the site seems right at home.
