A reader’s drive-byÂ shootingÂ at the corner of N. Shepherd Dr. and W. 20th St. capturedÂ a fewÂ photos of Abel Motors, whose new signage announces a move to parts even further north. The dealership’s new location at 9102 Airline Dr. will put it just south of Halls Bayou at the intersection of Airline and Gulf Bank Rd. acrossÂ from the Cathedral of St. Matthew. (andÂ amidÂ a suiteÂ of other car sales and auto repair operations up and down the street).
The N. Shepherd spot to be vacated sits catty-corner to the former car dealership property currentlyÂ being redeveloped as a Mellow Mushroom-containing retail strip, and a block north of the Take 5 Oil ChangeÂ getting into gear at the corner with 19th St. Here’s another shot of the corner, looking north across 20thÂ toward the ex-FiestaÂ a few blocks up the road:
