Bobby Culpepper ended a more than six-decade family tradition last week.
The Harlem mayor permanently closed the doors Saturday of Culpepper Ford, a family-run Ford dealership in Thomson.
“You have to make the best of it and move on,” said Culpepper, owner of the dealership started by his father, Bill, in 1949.
The dealership ended sales on Saturday, but some service work trickled over into this week.
Culpepper cited an economic recession and financial woes for closing the dealership after 63 years.
