Straley's Auto Sales

I was photographing another place across the street when I noticed the American flag hanging on the wheelchair ramp in front of the office trailer at this used car lot on Broadway, just north of Taylor Street, in Fort Wayne.

I actually have a connection to this place. When I was 16 years old, 22 years before I made this photograph, my father helped me buy a car from Straley's. It was a 1987 Pontiac 6000STE sedan. It was an awesome car! The dashboard was all digital, which was still rare even in the early 90s when we bought the car, and the radio controls were on the steering wheel.

Back then, the car lot was on the corner of Broadway and Taylor, where the BP gas station now sits just south of Straley's current location.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
