STERLING – One of Sterling's unique automotive businesses is no longer.

Do It Yourself Auto Garage, 16418 Prairieville Road on the esat end of Sterling, closed after 13 months of business, according to its Facebook page.

The business, owned by father-and-son Werner and Falco Weitz, had automatic lifts for cars, trucks and motorcycles; customers rented lift space and tools, if needed.

The Weitzes immigrated from Dusseldorf, Germany 12 years ago, and the idea for the business was about 10 years in the making.
