Auto Plaza


I pass by this place quite often and I've always admired the building which looks like an old hacienda style home but, in the past the front has been so obscured with cars that it wasn't worth trying to get a photo.  Then the other day I passed it and not a car was in site.  I hope that means they've sold them all and business is booming.  :-)  When I saw the coast was clear, I pulled in to get a photo.  It certainly looks more like a home than a business establishment.  Put in a nice desert landscaped yard and there you have it.

Great looking place to buy a car from!

I like the hacienda look.

Lowell said...

It has the Spanish style, that's for sure. I'll bet it was a home at some point in the past.
I'll also bet that Kenly went out of business.

I do like the colour.

I like those windows.

I do like that yellow color and the contrast with the red window frames. I also hope this business hasn't gone under. We don't need more of that...

You are right, it does look more like a home than a business :)

It looks like it would fit right into Randy's Santa Fe!

You said it, it doesn't look like a garage at all! Love the symmetry!

It does look an interesting building. So glad you got that moment with a clear view.

That is a fine looking building! I like the red trim around the windowpanes.

I hate the idea of it being a cheap car lot. Sorry.

Hey, there's vigas on this building. I wonder if they are in the interior too..

Thérèse said...

It definitely looks like a home, the color stands out for sure and this helps for business.

It looks great without cars.

Maybe they're resurfacing the parking lot?

I hate cars in pictures. (Unless it's a cool or unusual car and thus the subject of the photo.) For me, a huge factor in deciding which buildings and shops to photograph is what's parked (or not parked) in front!

Yup, a few of the fabulous cacti you show us Sharon and this would look brilliant!
