Bell Motors moved to Leonardtown when the Navy took over Pearson to build the base and operated the new car sales, service and used car facility until selling to Weingardner in 2008 as GM angled for a bailout during the Great Recession.
These classy chassis's didn't mind having their photos taken. After more than 65 years of service, the original Bell Brothers, Ernest, and Webster died a little over six months apart in 1987 and 1988. The next generation of Bell Brothers, Tommy and Frank, officially assumed the ownership roles, with their mother's guidance in the beginning of 1988. The second-generation brothers have been working in the family dealership since adolescence. Both brothers attended and graduated from the General Motors Institute in Flint, Michigan, in 1957 and 1958, respectively. Tommy assumed the leadership role as General Service Manager of Bell Motor Company New Cars with his brother in charge of the Used Cars Sales and Service.
The Bell Motors' first location in Leonardtown was a wooden garage next to the Duke Building at the top of Laundry Hill on the south side of Fenwick Street. In 1939, when Tommy Bell was two years old, Webster and Ernest built their new car showroom on the corner of Washington Street and Park Avenue.
