Tom Henry New Dealership

I thought it might be fun to document a ground up build of a new Chevrolet Dealership. The first photo is of the lot with cars in it, which will be where the new building goes.

A new building addition, or new showroom and whole 9 yards? Maybe you can get it done before I get around to ordering my convertible ZL1...

Cannot wait to visit you in your new digs!

It would be really cool for you to document the odd things you find stuck in the corners of the current building as it is coming down. Love to know what you guys find.

It is a complete new dealership. The old one will get demolished. Rumor has it the Fbodfather is going to O D on Iced Tea and drive an old Toyota into the walls.

Tom, I know how you must feel, paying (building) it forward. It's got to be bittersweet in some ways, but how great it is!
