Here Today, Gone Tomorrow – Central Chrysler

Located on the corner of Goyeau & Elliott was Central Chrysler. Like many other retailers, Central Chrysler also abandonned downtown Windsor for the sprawled out area at the south end of the city. As a result of some poor planning, and bad luck, the old Central Chrysler went bankrupt, leaving the old downtown location vacant and in limbo.

Last week the building eaters came in and cleared the site.

Mopar Parts

Five star serivce, and the old Chrysler Pentastar as well as the Plymouth Logo.

Bricks and broken windows are all that are still on site.

Along with the debris, a ceramic tiled cement slab that was once the sales office floor is all that remains of another part of Windsor’s history.
