While there he not only sold vehicles and heavy trucks he also started Middlebury Rent-all where he rented a wide variety of equipment. In 1983 G. Stone Motors took a whole new face, adding a new facility on Boardman Street and selling GMC, Ford, and Mercury Vehicles as well as a complete line of wreckers and car carriers. Now over 40 years later G. Stone Motors is a full line GMC and Ford dealer offering parts, sales, and service for everything from a compact car to a medium duty truck.
