GREAT TRIBUTE ............I shared this with some old friends as we tried to recall all the names of the dealers in our town and as they changed hands over the years.

Glad to hear you enjoyed this tribute. I loved going to see the new cars at the dealers when they came out. It was a party atmosphere checking out all the new differences on all the models. The 1952 Ford Levittown car dealer pix is actually a dealer from my childhood town. They moved but are still in business! My Dad had a new 52 Ford which I loved. I was only 5 years old, I started early loving cars!

Amen to that, I used to try to peek through the "soaped" front windows of the dealership to get a peek at the new models. I'd stand by the railroad track and try to catch a glimpse of the ones on the auto trains. Model cars and trains, slot cars and TV Westerns all played a part of some of the happiest times in my life. I miss them more and more as we move forward.

Wow I did all that as well. I used to build model cars paint them and display them. Next to the Ford dealer was Konners Chevrolet which also moved but still in business today. Each Sept new cars would be trucked in and stored in the back parking lot od both dealers. I would climb the fence to see the new models! By the time they came out in Oct I knew all the changes. I now have a nice collection of Danbury Mint, Franklin Mint 1/24 scale cars from the 40's 50's and 60's. My next tribute may be to show some of my cars. Great memories!

Well I for one would LOVE to see that tribute of 1/24 scale cars. I too made models, always going to WESTERN AUTO to buy the latest model and enter them during the towns celebratory days in the shop windows. Sounds like we were cut from the same cloth. Please fulfill that model tribute, it will make this kid happy.

Will do. I'll start working on that and you're right we seem to be cut from the same cloth!
