Ted Hugh and Mark Nelson started a partnership in 1938 at 515 Second Street NW (North Broadway). They were known A “Ted and Markies”. In 1940 they were appointed the “Nash” dealer for northwest North Dakota. Business was suspended in April of 1943 until October of 1945 as the owners went off to serve in WW II. Business resumed on January 4,1946 at a service station at First Avenue SE in downtown Minot. They moved back to what is now North Broadway in 1948 and built a new building. At one time they were the dealers for Nash, Rambler, Hudson and eventually American Motors. The location is now the home of Westlie’s Tire Center.
