Dick Dyer Toyota, 3215 Two Notch Road: fall 2009 (moved)   4 comments

Posted at 3:05 am in stores

The first car we bought from Dick Dyer Toyota (or perhaps back then it was Dyer & Beck, with their catchy faux-asian "Dyer & Beck impor-ted-cars" jingle) was a 1980 Corolla station wagon, which I still have, and my main car is from there as well. The nice thing about Dick Dyer from my perspective, aside from the fact that they generaly seem to know what they are doing when they fix a car, was that I could walk home from there after dropping off a car, or I generally could -- I tried the hour walk in August once and nearly expired..

They have built a large new store on I-77 in Blythewood, which I have yet to visit. I believe the body shop (which I have used after taking out Bambi on I-20 once..) remains on Two Notch along with a pre-owned and scooter operation. That is all on the top part of the lot. The last time I drove by, it appeared the bottom half of the lot was for sale. I wish them well in their new digs, but it's another blow to the Two Notch corridor.

  1. Man, this nostalgia stuff is addictive! The section of the car lot right next to Mary's Celebrity Supper Club was actually the parking lot for the club and it would be packed on Friday and Saturday nights. The entrance today for the club was a service entry. I wish I could remember what the rest of the car dealership was previously, I'm pretty sure it was occupied by at least a couple of businesses before you get to Windover Street.

    I bought my Tacoma pick-up truck from here and when I took the test drive I drove down Windover Street to Truman Street, which was the street we lived on when i was born.

  3. With Dick Dyer gone..it's just a matter of time before all of it's gone. Two Notch is just a shell of it's former self anyhow since A&W is gone, and the Atlantic Dept. Store (when it was new back in the early 60's) . That entire side of town is NOT the place you want to be around anymore. I'm glad they tore down the "Ho" tels that used to be around there BUT , but too much too little too late. And now you know the REST....................................... of the story.
