Before the present day Autobahn there was in the same location a concern that sold grey market European cars named Autobahn.When John Chase bought the location for his Volvo dealership he liked the name and kept it.But these were two different businesses.

My brother seems to remember an assistant barber at Horton's who had one eye.He thinks his name was Jim.We used to swim in the pool in front of Meadowbrook's club house.A friend of ours was swimming by the drain at the bottom of the pool and there was apparently enough suction to jerk his head against it.He was OK but frightened.I'm not a good golfer and have maybe played at 5 courses tops but Meadowbrook is still my favorite course.

In the southeast quadrant of the intersection of Blue Mound Rd. and Meacham Blvd is what I would describe as a campus of multiple buildings;all of the same architecture.They have been vacant for as long as I have noticed them.Does anyone know what this was originally?

Didn't the Public Market Building used to house a company called Cadillac Plastics?
