If you follow the TV show "American Pickers" on the History Channel, occasionally you'll see Mike and Frank buy a car that's in need of a little repair. Well one of the shops they use is Mefford Motors in Columbia Tennessee. You may have seen an episode where Mike and Danielle toured his old Chevy Dealership and shop for a possible partnership. Since that episode, the Old Dealership has made many exterior improvements to replicate an old Texaco gas station. I happened to be in the neighborhood and stopped by. I wandered the outside till I found a open garage door and yelled inside. Mike Mefford the owner greeted me and quickly asked that I follow social distancing rules. He said I could roam around freely and take all the pictures I wanted. I was elated and with that, so I walked inside helped myself to some old cars. All were in various stages of repair. I had a great time, and I hope some of you will enjoy these few snapshots I took.

Great set, James. I love that show! I recognize the old Texaco gas station from the show, and even a couple of the cars look familiar.

Looks like an overhead valve on the intake side of the Harley - very impressive for the time !!

Great set of car shots. Sad for a Jag guy like me to see the Mark IV (?) in such a sad state. Thanks for posting these.

We live 30 minutes from here and drive by that shop often. I had no idea what might be inside.
