From what I've seen most of them wind up becoming used car lots or, if they're in nicer towns they get torn down and become big box or strip malls. It seems like, at this point, most of the "motor mile" strips from yesteryear are in inner suburbs are probably, in most cases, ripe for some kind of mixed-use development. It's just a matter of finding a fwd thinking local government and someone willing to take a risk on that kind of investment.
