DeMarc Auto Sales - West Pittsburg PA

Text Coming Soon!

Charles DeMarc opened his first auto repair garage in this little homemade shed (on left) on Canal Street in c1962. The front porch of the DeMarc family home is visible on right. The home is gone now but my Uncle Charley still lives in a new house on the same property. Across the street you can see a house and that is where Charley would soon open his auto sales business.

A few years later Charles opened a larger garage and started an auto sales business just across the street (Route 168). Full Size

Charles DeMarc closed up the auto sales business long ago but operated a auto salvage yard out of this location ever since. Over the years he has also leased the property to others who ran a repair and/or salvage business. (Apr 2010)
