If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." The 1980s classic "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" is a film about living life it the fullest and it was a favorite of the late Tom Larson of Park River.

It started with the car wash on the west end of town and now business has ex- panded. An office building was added over the summer di- rectly east of the car wash where the used car dealer- ship took root and now, the lo- cation has seen the addition of Park Street Laundromat. The dealership, on the lot owned by Bob Lundquist, of- ficially opened as D&B Mo- tors Used Auto Sales in the fall. "September 1 st was the of- ficial opening date," said Lundquist. "We had done sales Photo: Larry Biri here for about a year prior and it had been successful, so we decided to put up an office building with a garage and bathroom, which was re- quired." The used car dealership is a branch of D&B Motors out ofLangdon, a partnership that was an easy decision for Lundquist. "I'd bought vehi- cles there and was treated well, and I wanted something to offset the car wash in the winter months," said Lundquist.
