Nice, thanks for sharing! Goes back to the simpler times of car dealers…unlike todays 'mega-centers'.

That is a really cool photo with an interesting 1967 Camaro.  Do you know where that dealership was located?  Can you post a link to where you found it?  Thanks!

The dealer was Chatham Motors in Chatham, ONT, between Windsor and London.
No stripes so it's a 327 or L6 car.  Sure looks like it says PACE on the door. Wonder if the source photo is available.

I'm stymied on what the word before Pace would be....

The lettering is orange, the 67 Pace car decals were blue.  Must be some local Canadian Pace car like an SCCA (or the Canadian equivalent), grand prix or some other race that had their own decals made.

Can anyone decide what cars are in the showroom, might determine the year?  Looks like a dark Camaro on the far left with nose stripe.

That's what I thought, as though someone put the '69 Pacer decals on a '67.
