former showroom
Denver, CO
This former showroom was built in 1926 for the Cullen-Thompson Motor Company. Each arch features stained-glass depictions of the Chrysler winged wheel logo. Ramps inside the building still connect the floors. One of them is now used as an artificial ski slope. In 1971, Gart Brothers Sports Castle moved into the building. Since around 2006, the building has housed a Sports Authority. These photos are from 2012. In 2016, the Sports Authority closed and the building has been vacant since then. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Rickenbaugh Cadillac/Volvo

Rickenbaugh Cadillac/Volvo was established in 1944. I don't know if this 50,000 square foot showroom was built then or later. It was definitely here by the 1960s. [map]

Bill's Motor Co.
Sterling, CO
This building in Springfield was apparently built in 1927 and housed a Chevrolet dealership. The building now houses the Lost Dog Cafe. [map]

Bill's Motor Co. sold Cadillac, Oldsmobile, and GMC Trucks. I don't know what make was sold here originally. The building might be from the 1920s or 1930s. Shortly after this photo was taken in 2012, the Old Town Bistro moved into the building. The building now houses the Hot Spot Smokehouse. The Bill's Motor Co. letters are still there. [map]

former Vogue Super Service and Santi Motor Co.
Walsenburg, CO
Oscar Santi started his oil company in 1930 and opened a gas station on W. 7th St. In 1939, the building shown in the top row was built for his Vogue Super Service gas station. He soon started selling cars. In 1951, he opened the Santi Motor Co. building shown in the bottom row above. I believe it sold Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln. The buildings feature glazed brick exteriors and interiors. The building in the top row has been used for retail shops but is currently vacant. The building in the bottom row is used by the Huerfano County Fire Protection District. [map]
