Taylor Motor Co.
Taylor, TX
The Taylor Motor Co. building was supposedly built in 1931. However, it looks more 1940s to me. The building housed the Taylor Auto Credit Service Center when these photos were taken in 2011. The Chevrolet sign must have revolved. It advertised Buick on the other side. These signs were removed around 2013. By 2016, the display windows had been boarded up. For more, see this website.

former showroom
Bryan, TX
Davidson Motor Company
Graham, TX
This former showroom now houses Vilas Motor Works. [map]

The Davidson Motor Company was established in 1937. This building appears to be from the 1950s. [map]

Jim Brooks Oldsmobile Cadillac
Denison, TX
The Jim Brooks Oldsmobile Cadillac dealership now houses a Sherwin-Williams paint store. [map]

former showroom
Whitesboro, TX
This former showroom was used to display a private car collection for many years. I believe this building housed a Chevrolet dealership at one point. These photos are from 2008. By 2014, the showroom was vacant and the building was for sale. [map]

Bluebonnet Chrysler Dodge
New Braunfels, TX
I believe the Bluebonnet Chrysler Dodge dealership was established in 1928. I don't know when this building or sign were built. Between 2014 and 2016, new signs were on the building although the dealership was still operating under the same name and selling the same brands. The neon sign had been moved to a building on the left just beyond the frame of this photo. For more, see this website. [map]

former showroom
Kingsville, TX
This former showroom housed Eddie Yaklin Ford Lincoln Mercury. The dealership apparently moved to a new location in town. This photo is from 2011. The building was still vacant in 2016. [map]

former Vandergriff Chevrolet showroom
Arlington, TX
This former Vandergriff Chevrolet showroom was built in the mid-1960s. The building has been demolished. However, the sign was saved and installed in Vandergriff Park in 1996. For more, see this website. [map]

The original Vandergriff dealership building from 1927 has been restored.

former Villa Oldsmobile
Lubbock, TX
The Villa Oldsmobile dealership was built in 1971. When these photos were taken in 2017, the building had housed Tec's Autoplex. That business appeared to be closed. I assume the larger building in the top row housed Villa's new car showroom and the smaller building in the second row served as the used car office. [map]

Christi Electric
Corpus Christi, TX
These Christi Electric buildings originally housed Gainan Chevrolet. [map]
