About Us

In early 2006 Craig Nelson ended his 17 year affiliation with Westar Motors and opened Black Hills Auto Sales. In the years since we first open our doors at 1600 East Highway 44 a lot has changed. We saw the banking crisis unfold and lending rules and practices change. The bailouts of GM and Chrysler, “Cash for Clunkers” and the consumers desire for SUV’s and pickup trucks instead of cars.

We have seen changes in our store as well. Some of the familiar people and faces associated with Craig and the dealership over the years, have gone on to pursue different paths. We have some new people, some not so new and the regulars that are ready to welcome and help returning customers, friends and new customers to our store.

We have also had some changes to our Finance and Insurance office. If you have found the vehicle on our lot that you like and the price has been agreed upon. We offer the convenience of bank and credit union financing right in our store. We can go to work for you and try to find the best qualifying interest rate and term to fit your budget. We accept all completed credit applications. Not all who apply may qualify for a car loan. The banks and credit unions have their individual loan requirements that have to be met for loan approval.

Through all the changes, one thing has remained constant. To offer quality preowned cars, trucks, heavy duty trucks, sport utility vehicles, crossovers and minivans at a fair price. We do accept trades. Is there a vehicle on our lot that you like and have a trade? It is always best to bring your trade in so we can give you an accurate value of your trade.

Black Hills Auto Sales is proud to be one of the sponsors for the 5 States Breeder’s Futurity. We also sponsor several barrel racing events and donate to youth rodeo programs in the Black Hills area.

We are constantly looking for quality vehicles that we can offer for sale. If you do not see it today, please check back we may have it or know where one is.
