Found online a postcard of the dealership where my 1959 Sport Fury was delivered to brand spanking new! If you look closely, you can see a '57 Chrysler, a '60 Chrysler, and a '60 Plymouth

Thanks so much for posting the photo of Dick Green Chrysler in Detroit. My 1966 Town and Country was sold there, and I have been looking in vain until now for a reference,, as the building is gone now.
Thanks.
Mark

I seem to remember that there is (or was) a Doering Motors in suburban Milwaukee. I think they sold Dodge cars mainly. I may have even bought a new 1982 Dodge 400 from them. A nice enough car, but the 2.2 4 cylinder wasn't peppy enough for me and the CV joints went out on the left side at 100,000 miles. Traded it for a Thunderbird with the 302 V-8 (5 liter)

The office girl working the mechanical NCR cash register probably explains why the picture was in the Dayton archives. NCR was justly proud of the machines they used to manufacture here in Dayton.

Redmond Motor Sales Desoto Plymouth Redmond, WA


==============================================

This place stood at the SE end of town. I never knew it as anything but
a used car dealership, but a neighbor bought his 56 DeSoto there (he still
owned it in the 70's) and told me all about the place. He said he had intended
to trade the 56 in on a new 61 DeSoto, but when he went in to do so, was
told the brand had been discontinued and they could get no more, so rather
than change brands, he kept his 56.

I would really like to see a photo of that place as a DeSoto dealership.

Sorry, I couldn't get the pics to load the other night and didn't realize I had posted. Lets see if this works. Found these in the Washington State Archives, it is two photos of an accident scene in Redmond, WA, in approx 1946.

Thanks ! Utterly amazing. Hardly recognizable to my 1960's-70's
time there. The larger photo gives it away as being where the old
Avondale Road peeled off at the odd angle to the highway to Fall City,
which in turn, helps interpret what I am seeing with the camera facing
the other direction. So much had changed by 1970 ! Today, a person
could not find it at all. When Microsoft came to town, the whole place
was torn up and transformed into a netherworld of boutiques and strip
malls for the Microwives to spend their trophy money at.

Odd, the two identical Chrysler sedans in the photo.
