I was wondering how many of you are familiar with the old dealership in pikeville, nc. I have seen some thing on gremlix.com about this... These are some pics i took some time in 05.

70 javelin (says a real Donahue
 

Big Bad Blue

Never seen this on a 71-74 body style.

Alabama State Trooper.  

Floors are completely gone.

Another view of BBB

Some one in the military left this there is 2001-2002 never returned to get it.



This one is in the service shop.
 
I am trying to take a saturday and go back out there. It is only a little over a hour from me. I work with people that know old man bobby collier. I asked him if i could document his cars.... let me know  waht you all think....

That guy is a hoarder that will end up losing everything to zoning laws. I hope the guy is gonna sell some of the cars as most are just returning to the elements at a quick pace  cry

I believe years ago on the amc-list it was mentioned that this might not have been a actual AMC Dealership. I honestly do not know. As for the comment below by greasedgremlin, you are probably correct as place after place has fallen in recent memory due to ever changing zoning laws or developers buying properties up. So don't be all surprised if these folks do indeed lose everything to city, or county one day and ends up being coke cans.

I wonder how long the AMX has been in the service shop?
 
Personally I believe he should fix 'e up and sell them as a dealership again.

I have been there, and it was a real dealership.  Collier Motors.  They are an old Pikeville family with deep roots.  I don't think they will mess with him.  I think he is in his 80's now.  They have built a Food Lion grocery store across the road, and I do think he had to put up  a fence.  Not sure of the fence though.  He is a really enteresting fellow, and has met a lot of enfluencial people in his life.  Only problem is he has always priced his parts and cars too high.

Bud and Pat's AMC in Cameron, MO. They passed on years ago now there son Mike owns it. He's a cool guy. I get parts from him when he's willing to sell them.
 

 
I might get out there next week and get more shots if the weather clears up. If you look to the far right you can see the door of a 70 sst Javelin. That car has not moved in at least ten years. I try every now and again but he still won't sell it. Whats left of it anyway.

did any of you show up at these places with your own amc to show the owners that you are actually interested in the amc's they have.
