PENDLETON — Don’t look down from the second floor of MAC’s Antique Auto Parts Inc.

It’s a much different, more dizzying view than the company’s old store at 1051 Lincoln Ave. in the City of Lockport.

Seemingly endless rows of shelves line the warehouse section of the building on its top and bottom floor. Over 45,000 parts and pieces for Ford, Mercury and Edsel vehicles have been sorted, packed and stored in thousands of coded yellow bins.

The company is almost finished with its three-week move into its new digs on Donner Road in Pendleton. These days, there is much more room for the car parts and all 70 MAC’s employees to breathe.

“The building is designed to let us double in size,” said Randy McIntosh, co-owner and vice president of MAC’s.

Together with his brother, co-owner and company president, Rick McIntosh, Randy McIntosh has overseen the massive move. The men have spent a lot of time hauling over 100 loads of products and supplies to their new location.

“When you’ve been somewhere for 20-plus years, you collect a lot of stuff,” Rick McIntosh said, eyeing the second floor of shelves.

The business began in Douglas McIntosh’s Locust Street garage in 1978. He started by selling Model T parts, but expanded to Model A parts and into other Ford cars after moving to the Lincoln Avenue building.

Rick and Randy McIntosh grew up watching their father run the business and their mother work as his first employee. She used to type up the catalogs, throwing out a page and starting over when she mistyped a word or product number.
