Griffitt Auto Service:

New garage on Straight Mountain



Not all of those shown here are preparing to work on the unsuspecting van in the foreground – not even Elwyn Thomas, who’s brandishing the wrench. All shown turned out to celebrate the new garage’s opening ceremony last month. (Counter clockwise from left foreground): Carl and Pamela Griffitt with daughter Audrey, Amy Dobbs, Kevin Ellis, Kelley Cochran. (Back row from left): Jim Murphree and Joe Griffitt; (middle row from left): James Chapman and Charles Carr; (front and center): Elwyn Thomas. Located on U.S. 231 South near Airport Road, the garage services all makes and models. Worth noting: they specialize in foreign-car repair. – Ron Gholson
