Mallard Motors –
In the 1960's Mallard Motors was located at the intersection on 4th Avenue and 6th Street SW in Minot. They claimed to be “Minot’s foremost dealer in fine used cars”. Proprietors were Elwood (Woody) Thorpe and Jim Weiskoph. I think about Mallard Motors often as I go up and down Broadway. They had a small building on a gravel parking lot. The location is now Prairie Federal Credit Union. At one time I had a 1958 Austin Healey 100-6. It was the predecessor to Austin Healy 3000 which Mallard Motors had in their small showroom.
