Car dealers, Searcy AR. Which one did you buy a car from?

Car dealers Searcy AR

Going through a lot of saved clippings, saved by my now deceased mother-in-law Wyndelene Duncan, I found this interesting one.

It shows probably every car dealer in Searcy AR in possibly the 60's.  She failed to put the date on this one other than that someone died on March 16.  It may have been Mrs. Gill.  Look through the list of attendees and see how many you remember.  Dealerships were family owned back then and this one represents a lot of families.

It's a great memory!  Did you buy a car from one of them?

Barbara, with the wide ties and the one plaid sport coat I would go with the '70s.

Remember all of the car dealers! I would agree it was probably late 60's or 70's! Always had great faith in anything Dwane Treat told you! I can remember Vernon Duncan well also!! Love all the post about White County!!

Anita, I think Dwayne Treat was loved by almost everyone.  When the business was sold they let him go, if I remember right.  Stupid stupid new owners.

Jackie, ditto what I said to Anita about Dwayne Treat.  I think he must have had Searcy's trust as a car dealer.  Vernon did ok, too!!

I have no idea, Barbara, but I just love it how people can post a question these days and get answers so quickly. I also love how revealing old newspaper photos can be when you study them closely.

Danna, are you Tuffy's daughter?  Thanks for commenting.

Janelle, I read that kids are no longer going to be taught cursive writing.  Now we see why with the quick answers on the internet.

Car dealers playing an important role automobile sector that making the people update about the social effects and the basic inventions in different models of car. During search of a car it is important to have the information regarding the best dealership of that model which might help you to choos ethe best one foy yuour use. I must say that this is one of the best service which really helping people in a better way of representation.

Car dealers are the middle channel of distribution in between car makers & car customers. They play a very vital role as they bring cars from the company & sell it to the customers. They also provide service facility to the existing customers with great satisfaction. Here Mrs. Gill has a repute car shop for which she has got reward from the public. The shops deal with all kinds of cars with varieties. There are some shops dealing with new & old cars with affordable price & service.
