Underriner Motors has completed a move to the Billings West End that’s been a decade in the making.
Vince Long’s white 1972 Volvo 1800E joined other foreign cars at a November 2012 Northern Plains Vintage Foreign Car Club meeting in Billings. Long decided as a teenager that he wanted the sports car after watching a British television series, “The Saint.”
Vince Long’s brown 1959 Volvo PV544 and white 1972 Volvo 1800E line up with Nick Andrew’s 1973 Triumph TR6 in Long’s driveway last year at the first meeting of the Northern Plains Vintage Foreign Car Club.
Vince Long, the owner of three Volvos, had such a good time visiting with other fans of older foreign cars at local shows that he started a club last year so vintage gearheads could meet regularly.
Four years after Bill and Mary Underriner opened their Honda showroom off Zoo Drive, they are investing up to $6 million more to build a second dealership.
For nearly half a century, truckers have been snaking their way through the east business district off downtown Billings to find the Peterbilt truck dealership.
