LANHAMS of Leeton has been open in the shire since 1937 and, while there has been challenges along the way, the coronavirus pandemic is up there with one of the biggest.
The Leeton store is part of the Lanhams Motor Group with a second location in Griffith.
Throughout COVID-19, the automotive industry has seen a downturn and there's many reasons why.
Thankfully, Lanhams of Leeton has been able to retain all of its staff to continue to provide its renowned services.
However, the pandemic has thrown up several challenges for the industry, according to Garry Lanham, who has been with the business since 1964 when he started as an apprentice motor mechanic working underneath the tutelage of his father Stan.
"The thing I'm proudest of through all of this is we have been able to keep all our staff on," he said.
"We are starting to see orders (for new vehicles) really starting to drop off now.
"Plants are closed overseas, so we're not getting any stock. If you look out into the yard here, there's not much there.
"Even with vehicles coming in, because there's nothing built in Australia, all those vehicles are having to go through a strict quarantine, so there's delays there too.
"We're just in a totally different world."
However, while these are challenges the business is having to address, the show must go on and the community can help.
Those in the market for a new or used car should certainly still be getting in touch with Lanhams of Leeton.
The business is also well-known for the other swathe of services it provides, including rental vehicles, including its prestige fleet, NRMA Insurance, vehicle services, spare parts and much more.
Another element that has helped push the business along in recent times has been its relationship with former race car driver Dick Johnson.
Mr Johnson's new hero car, the limited edition 635kW Ford Mustang, saw 30 being constructed in Australia and through their close connection with him, Lanhams Motor Group was given the contract to personally deliver these cars to their new owners.
Mr Lanham said being part of the family-run business was one of life's great joys, as way being part of the Leeton community.
"What will get everyone through these tough times is sticking together as a community and supporting each other," he said.
Lanhams of Leeton's opening hours remain the same, Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.30pm and Saturdays from 9am to noon.
