Vintage Dealership Photos

With your help, we would like to develop a new category that features vintage dealership photos to expand further upon what we have attached here. Although we always enjoy seeing pictures of recently restored vintage cars, nothing beats seeing old pictures of them when they were still brand new and sitting on the showroom floor. It’s amazing that the dreadful tradition of haggling over the price of a car is still commonplace in our society, a practice that everybody hates to do and yet it unbelievably still exists to this day. In any case, please enjoy the few photos we actually have gathered up so far on the following page and if you have something interesting to include, please put a link to it in the “Comments” section below, or e-mail them to us [email protected] for us to update here. Help us make this into a new category filled with showroom shots of all types of vehicles from all different time periods. Until then, enjoy the 70+ photos on the following page…
