Flannery Buick Company
Bad Axe, MI
The Flannery Buick Company building appeared to be from the 1920s or earlier. By 2018, the facade's details were gone and a curved top had replaced the stepped top. The business is now known as the Flannery Auto Mall. [map]

former Cadillac dealership
Detroit, MI
This former Cadillac dealership was built in 1927. The building sat vacant for many years but it is now owned and used by Wayne State University. Although the showroom windows have been bricked up, the Cadillac crests are still visible. [map]

Ferndale, MI
Wetmore's has always been a service garage and not a dealership. But I'll sneak it in since the business has an interesting building. Wetmore's has been here since 1928. Various cars with spinning, misaligned wheels have been protruding from the second-floor alcove since then. For more, see this website. [map]

former Blain Buick-Opel

Verschoor Motor Sales
Grand Rapids, MI
The Verschoor Motor Sales building was constructed around 1937. It was a Hudson dealership at one time. The showroom part of the building is on the left. There appears to be a former small, canopy gas station on the right with service bays behind the two connected structures. The building is now vacant. [map]

Hodges Pontiac Buick
Hart, MI
This Hodges Pontiac Buick building appears to be from the 1940s. The dealership is still in operation. [map]

Lakeview, MI
Bollinger's was established in 1914 as a Dodge dealership. The company later sold Chrysler, Plymouth, and Jeep vehicles as well. The dealership closed in 2009, as a result of Chrysler's bankruptcy. The building was still vacant when this photo was taken in 2011. [map]

former dealership [gone]
Munising, MI
This former dealership and garage last housed a Chevrolet dealership from at least the 1940s until the 1980s. I don't know if that was the make that was sold here originally. This photo is from 2011. The building was still there in 2015 but gone by 2018.
