We put this collection of random vintage photographs together from a 196 page-and-counting thread on VWVortex.com simply titled “Vintage photos…..Awesome!” by forum member “G60toR32”. Thousands of pictures are included from every era all around the populated world, including some that we particularly found interesting of our native Los Angeles before today’s plague of traffic and congestion. Get lost while looking at over 100 photos attached on the following page, or if you really have some time for a journey you can find the link to the original thread at the bottom of the next page.

Vintage Dealership Photos

June 8, 2016 in American / General Discussion / Uncategorized / 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.

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…

He had aspirations of re-opening the store and selling cars again, but unfortunately no factory support from GM arose to help make the dream become a reality. In any case, the parts were said to be set for cataloging and inventory for future sales at auction, but we think a better idea would be to keep it open as a museum because this rare slice of Americana history is surely one of the last of it’s kind that still survives…
