I thought it was a good time to start a thread that hopefully over time we can add a huge amount of dealership information and memorabilia to for assisting others with what might be both available or to know what to even search for. Items like what a dealership used for advertising which includes all the things they placed on a car prior to sale. Dealer information on when a dealership went out of business or changed ownership and possibly names. With so many Chevrolet owners attempting to find out when their car was manufactured and the dealership that ordered now is a good a time as any to start. Austin (bullet65) started the ball rolling with his thread http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=12174.0
Hopefully this thread can compliment and assist others now and in the future.
Some Ammon R Smith items that can be found-
These can be found as they were used for years! Just a simple key chain with a different front and back face.
Tube of three plastic golf balls!
Everyone probably knows Ammon R Smith was famous for Dave Strickler and Bill Jenkins 409 Chevrolets.
Ammon R Smith on Carlisle Ave. very close (almost across the street) from the York Fairgrounds, the Oldest running fair in the country.
That 2nd floor always seemed loaded with cars and a many a time we would check out what was there. Quick story! Our 69 L78 Nova had arrived and I went in to see it and like other cars I was told it's upstairs so I'm walking up this long ramp they drove the cars up and I hear this nice sounding car rumbling and a couple varooms to a healthy roar and to my surprise it was our Nova. They would leave the keys in the car and someone just got in, started it up and was revving it up. I told the guy it was my car, pulled the keys, locked it up, and immediately took the keys to the salesman. I could not pick the car up yet as I was not 21 and had to wait until I was 21 to apply for a loan at our credit union, so the car sat there for a few weeks. Oh the memories!
