BELVIDERE (WIFR) – It was the last day in business for one Stateline car dealership.
Wolf Automotive has been at its location in Belvidere since 1963, but the Wolf family has been in the business since the 20’s. We caught up with the 3rd generation vice president, John Wolf who says the rough economy has been their downfall.
All of the new and used cars have been sold and soon they’ll auction off all their antique vehicles, but for Wolf, the hardest thing is to think back on all the memories.
"An awful lot of memories, I probably started washing cars, everybody in our family has been involved with the dealership since 4, 5 or 6 years old, whenever Dad needed us we would tag along and we would help,” said John Wolf.
About 40 employees were let go, but most of them have found other jobs.
