1967 Lemans 1967 GTO parts car
The dealership was downtown at the junction of the two main thoroughfares that passed through the town of 15,000. There were two cars on the showroom that were fully loaded. Ten total parking spots inside. So there were 5 cars or less you could drive. The showroom cars the sales guys would take the people out and show the options before they ordered. On delivery day they had the spots on the street saved with salesmen cars, The semi would unload six on a good day and the over flow would be out on the street. They were nose to tail parallel parked, they were a sight. Us kids would go by and check them out.I like stories like that. It's funny, because I've never shopped for a new car for myself, and I avoid dealerships, but I like talking about what guys were ordering back in the 60s before I was born. And I like shopping for 60s cars because I like old stuff way more than new stuff. I'm a big fan of 8 tracks right now. I think they're making a comeback.
It operated the same way until the owner died in the *80's.
