General Auto Repair- Seen Better Days Outside Roanoke VAFrom the Archives when we visited Mark's Parents-in-Law in Virginia. Now I see the POSTED sign. Pulled over and took it from the car. Here's where the quote at the top comes in-"Place with trace of humanity."You see them all the time.You imagine who ran the place,who drove their vehicles up to the door?The coke bottles glass, not large.No one has been there for a long time.Rusting equipment, the tall grass.What was left inside?

Memories of the good old days when your local mechanic, in this case, Mr. Carter, could fix anything on your car at a reasonable price. You could also buy a 10 cent coke…in a glass bottle, out of one of those cool machines with a door on it.
I bet there are little creatures living in there now.
I have one of those cool machines in my rec room – and you do need a dime!
Cool photo. Love it!
I knew where it was before I even read your remarks. Nice picture from Hardy Virginia.
Is this the shop on Hardy Rd and Cherokee Ridge Rd area?
I believe so.
Early showed proficiency in providing information that was deliberately useful for what I had read before. He explained what the vehicle issue was and how he fixed it in layman’s terms.
