Bud Wolf Chevrolet a goner

The Wolf family has thrown in the towel on its Chevrolet dealership at 5350 N. Keystone Ave.

One of the owners, Andy Wolf, says the closing was forced because property tax increases shocked customers into pulling back

However, letâ??s recall that Payton Wells Chevrolet, which was just north of downtown, went out of business a few months earlier,
and Eric Dickerson closed his Buick dealership a year earlier. Dickerson was at 7250 N. Keystone several blocks north of Wolf.

Is it coincidence that these three dealerships dealt in General Motors products? Or that they were located in older areas
of the city?
