LEWISTOWN - Three friends recently opened up a car dealership in Lewistown after several months of planning and preparation.
EZ Auto, located directly across the street from Wal-Mart along U.S. 22 Business South, is run by Jamie McMullen, Dustin Pollock and Husky Hummel.
"I've been selling cars for 23 years. I started as a wash boy, I was general manager and now I'm an owner. I have worn many hats over the course of my career," Hummel said.

Hummel said they are in the process of continuing to build upon their inventory and he expects to maintain between 40 and 50 cars on the lot.
"Husky and I have been doing this all our lives," McMullen said, adding that Pollock also has a business background.
"We are a team, that's why all three of us are on the same business card," he added.
McMullen said he wants the process of buying car to be as relaxing as possible for his customers, that's why they have so much open space at their office.
"We want to focus on putting the customer back in control of the process of buying a car. Sometimes when you go to buy a car it becomes a chore ... we want the customer to guide us," McMullen said.
EZ Auto, located at 10183 U.S. 522 South, open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
