The Frank Myers Auto Maxx Team has always considered themselves progressive and on the cutting edge of the automotive industry. However, they always find it fun to reflect on where they’ve been. That’s why they were extremely interested to find a stack of old photos featuring customer of the dealership and their cars.
“These photos are amazing,” said Tracy Myers, current owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx. “They definitely tell a story. Most were taken in front of the old, one room store in Dobson and not the Winston-Salem location but it doesn’t matter. There is still lots of history in those photos. Just look at the clothes the customers are wearing and the classic cars they’re buying.”
Myers Family Legacy In The Triad
The instant Polaroid photos were found in an old chest which had been tucked away for several years and represent just a small part of the Myers family legacy in the Triad. “I was fortunate to have been born into a family of entrepreneurs,” said Tracy. My family originally came to the US from Germany on a boat. All they had when they arrived were the clothes on their back on 2 hammers yet they managed to open a successful construction business. Then there’s my Great Grandpa Myers who opened the original Frank Myers store more than 85 years ago. My grandma Myers ran a successful tax preparation business from her home until she passed away and then there is my father. Most call him Uncle Frank but his family calls him Franklin and the friends he grew up with call him Fast Frank. The two of us built this dealership together until I bought it from him in 2006. Even now, he is still my mentor and is always available to assist my Team and I in the day to day operations when needed. We often enjoy reflecting back on where we’ve been and how we’ve grown. These newly found photos help us do that.”
So what’s next? Myers said they are going to continue going through the photos, posting them on their Facebook and Twitter pages and would like to find some of the people in the photographs. “Wouldn’t it be cool to recreate some of the photographs? Kind of a then and now?”
Anyone who recognizes anyone who appears in the photo may contact Tracy Myers at #336-831-0646.
