Patterson's Texaco / Tires Unlimited, 2053 Two Notch Road: around 2009   6 comments

Posted at 12:33 am in closing

I don't know anything about Tires Unlimited other than that they sold used tires and were located in a very neat little building that was obviously once a service station.

It appears to be of an early '60s vintage, similar in some ways to the old Bill DuBose 66 station on Covenant.

The building now seems to be an impromptu parking lot for Blue Ribbon, and looks like it could use some TLC.

UPDATE 18 March 2011: Added "Patterson's Texaco" to the post title based on the comments.

UPDATE 25 May 2016 -- This place is to be a gas station again, albeit with a convenience store rather than service bays this time. Cheap Way is coming:

  1. Assuming that the exterior has not been dramactically altered, I would say based on the building's style and color scheme that it was probably a Texaco station at first.

  2. That was Patterson's Texaco. It became Tires Unlimited somewhere around 1979 or 1980. My family's garage was just up the hill on the same side of Two Notch Road.

  4. Can't remember his name but the last owner of Tires Unlimited was an extremely nice guy. He didn't change anything on the inside after he bought the place.

    @Eric- Was your family's garage the one just past Evergreen Apartments?

  5. @ Brent- That was us. Sherer's Garage. There from the 1940's when my grandfather moved it there from Read Street until 1990 when my Dad sold it (but, not the name). We shared the back half of the building with Red's Southern Armature until they built across the road. After Southern Armature moved out, the landlord used the front half for storage for his plumbing equipment and assorted junk.
