After finding a mid-century Plymouth in a North Carolina barn, Tyler Robertson brought it to Watkinsville as a fine example of a truly classic automobile. 

In addition to showing vintage cars at an upcoming car show that will benefit first responders, Robertson is showcasing some beauties at his new repair and automotive sales shop at 395 Jerry Smith Drive, where Kioti Outfitters was previously located.

The city of Watkinsville this month approved a conditional-use request for Motors on Main, thus allowing a low-volume licensed car dealer with a limited visible inventory. A provision was made for the outside display of up to four vehicles. The showroom itself is 1,800 square feet just inside the Watkinsville Business Park off Greensboro Highway.
