Lost Boyz opens in Johnstown

JOHNSTOWN – Fonda-based Lost Boyz Auto Sales expanded into the former Spray Nine property at 251 N. Comrie Ave. last week, with 80 cars in its inventory, owner Rob Rose III said today.

“I love it,” said Rose, whose Johnstown operation is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

Lost Boyz’ central location for sales and service is 3555 Route 5 in Fonda, which Rose said has an inventory of more than 100 cars. He said the Johnstown site, which he is leasing from Spray Nine, is only for sales.

The Spray Nine building had been vacant for some time. ITW Permatex, a Hartford, Conn.-based chemical technology company, purchased Spray Nine in February 2008 and transferred the operation in 2010 to Solon, Ohio.
