From Corvettes to golf carts, customers looking for quality transportation can find it at Henry Marino’s Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall in Nitro.

Located at 400 First Ave., near the foot of the Nitro-St. Albans bridge, Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall is backed by the experienced and trusted team of Henry Marino and his son, Chris. Together, they have more than 80 years of experience in the car business and are eager to help you find the vehicle of your dreams.

With warm summer driving drawing to a close, Chris Marino said the dealership has several nice convertibles from which to choose.

“We’ve got a couple of convertibles left. We’ve got two Corvettes and we’ve got a Mustang left. We also have a T-bird,” Marino said.

The Chevy Corvettes include a 2007 Indy Pace Car model with only 7,000 miles on the odometer and a 2008 Corvette with 43,000 miles on the odometer. It’s priced at $26,900.

Town & Country Preowned Auto Mall has also carved a niche for itself as the place to go for used golf carts. Marino said golf carts are legal to ride on “side streets” and “back streets” in Nitro.

“I’ve got three of them, and two are already sold. They’re Club Cars — they’re the good ones,” he said, adding that the average price of a used golf cart at Town & Country is around $3,200.

For those looking for more affordable cars, trucks and SUVs, Town & Country continues to offer its Budget Corral, where vehicles sell from $6,990 and up.

Budget Corral vehicles are good choices for those needing an inexpensive second vehicle to drive back and forth to work or for students heading back to college.

“That’s who buys your budget cars. I’m selling them as fast as I’m getting them. I’ll have more coming.”

Marino said Town & Country still has a selection of pickup trucks, including “lifted” trucks that have raised suspensions.

Town & Country also carries a variety of sport utility vehicles, including Jeeps.

And at press time, Town & Country even had a preowned Puma-brand camping trailer for sale. It’s 18 feet long, is air-conditioned and has a refrigerator and bathroom.

“I traded for it,” Marino said. “It’s listed for $6,900.”

Every used vehicle sold at Town & Country Preowned Auto comes with a Carfax report, and each vehicle is also checked out in the dealership’s service department.

The Town & Country service department is open to everyone, regardless of where they purchased their vehicles. The service department is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments are recommended.
