Thanks for sharing those. Times have really changed, buying a car was really an event. I noticed in all but one photo everyone is wearing a suit or top coat, women all in formal dresses and even the kids. Now you pretty much do everything on line and impersonal.

Like the one of the VW trying to come in uninvited!!Guess he wanted in with the big boys...

Yes people dressed in those days, I remember the salesmen in jackets and ties. This was especially
true in the higher end dealerships. Hey, remember passengers on commercial airline flights back in
the day? Today, you might sit by a huge guy in shorts, tank top and flip flops!

Don, so true about flying. However at Capital Cadillac here in Washington the salesmen still wear three piece suits. Guess that is not as common at other dealers.

What a great post Dave, thanks for sharing.

Sad to think all of those folks and probably all of those cars are long gone.
