The History of Weld County Garage Buick GMC

In 1901, D.R. McArthur established Weld County Garage selling buggies and shoeing horses for the then dirt roads of Greeley Colorado. In 1908, Weld County Garage entered the car business under the name of Weld County Automobile Company and became the first Buick dealership west of the Mississippi selling Buick’s most popular vehicle the Model 10. General Motors (GM) was founded on September 16, 1908 as a holding company for Buick, and on that date Weld County Automobile Company became a GM dealer. At this time Weld County Automobile Company was also selling Cadillac models. It is not currently known when then dealership stopped selling Cadillacs. In 1908, GM purchased the Reliance Motor Truck Company and the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company. These two were merged to create GMC Trucks in 1912 and Weld County Automobile Company was in the truck business. In 1914, the Weld County Automobile Company changed back to the original name of Weld County Garage. Weld County Garage began selling Pontiacs in 1926 when that brand was introduced into the GM fold.

Weld County Garage hasn’t always just been in the car business. Appliances were sold in the large showroom in the same building as the Buick, Pontiac and GMC sales on 8th Avenue and 10th Street in Greeley. This showroom later became the large indoor showroom for Buicks and Pontiacs that allowed Weld County Garage customers to shop for their new vehicle in the warmth of the indoors during the cold Colorado winters. Throughout the years Weld County Garage has sold many forms of transportation and entertainment including trailers, boats, jet skis, four-wheelers and motorcycles. The building on 8th and 10th was remodeled and expanded several times to house Weld County Garage’s service department, Collision Center, and detail shop and even had two large apartments upstairs. One of these apartments was the residence of Gene Bush who was an employee of Weld County Garage for over 50 years.

Weld Locations

A Growing Family of Business

Weld County Garage Inc. now contains five locations with nearly 300 employees serving all the automotive needs of Northern Colorado residents.

Truck City

In 1987, Weld County Garage purchased land to build a second service location and move the rapidly growing GMC sales to the east side of town off of Hwy 85. This new location was named Truck City and served truck needs for customers of Greeley and surrounding towns. With service business continuing to grow, Truck City grew out of its original location and moved into its current location 2 blocks north at 1415 1st Ave. At about the same time Weld County Garage moved into its new location in west Greeley, GMC sales moved to that location so the full Truck City building could be used for light and medium-duty service and fleet management.

Herbies Auto Sales

In 1989, Lee Yoder opened a J.D. Byrider franchise in Greeley, one of the first in the country. This location helped local customers with bruised credit situations to get into transportation and work to rebuild their credit. In May of 2000, Lee Yoder decided to form an independently owned buy-here-pay-here and named it Herbies Auto Sales. In 2018, Herbies is transitioning to a larger location and updating the look, feel and operation of the business with the new name DriveWise. This new name and location still offer the highest in respect and customer service to those with bruised credit in need of vehicle financing.

Abra Autobody and Glass

In February of 2009, Weld County Garage purchased an Abra franchise and moved its auto body shop to a brand-new location at 2835 S 31st Ave. For nearly 10 years Abra Greeley has been a convenient and thriving full-service auto body, paint and glass location serving Greeley and surrounding areas.

Greeley Subaru

In May of 2014, Weld County Garage Inc. purchased the Subaru franchise from Ehrlich and created Greeley Subaru. Greeley Subaru quickly grew out of its original location in East Greeley and in November of 2016 moved into its brand-new Subaru Certified Eco-Friendly location on 47th Ave in west Greeley just 2 blocks from the current Weld County Garage location. Greeley Subaru is thriving in its current location with Subaru sales, service and parts in one convenient location.
