Wednesday, December 17, 2014
Main Motors was located at the intersection of Main Street and 4th Avenue. At one time Main Motors was owned by Missouri Valley Motors of Bismarck. On April 1, 1960, four people purchased the business and changed the name to Main Motors. Those four included Don Moe, Alvin Officer, Bert LaHart and Sam Marshall. In 1960 Moe and Officer bought out the other two and became the principal owners. In March of 1963 Main Motors was moved to a new location at 108 #rd St. and became Lahart-Moe Inc. The business was franchised through and sold all Chrysler products. Eventually Don Moe would buy out Lahart and move the business to 3615 South Broadway under the name of Don Moe Motors. Through other owners and name changes the business became Minot Chrysler Center and is now known as Minot Automotive Center, selling Chrysler and Toyota products.
