Car Dealerships of the Past

Recommended Posts

Is there a website that lists the names of car dealerships? I've been trying to find the name of the Oldsmobile dealer that was located in Washington, DC when I was a lad and I can't find a historical site that answers this question.

Umm, where in Washington, DC, I am sure there were more then one? Also what time frame? One dealer would be Paul Brothers in Northwest Washington, DC.

My mother told me her cousin was a Duesenberg dealer in Providence, RI. His name was Williams and I'm told the business was Duesenberg of New England or something like that but I can't find hide nor hair.Maybe East Providence or Newport and probably Auburns and Cords too.

Well, the approximate time frame would help, and do you mean actually in the city of DC or in the DC metro area (and if the latter, is it VA or MD)? Folks in the Capitol City Rockets chapter should be able to help.

A long-past 66 Starfire I owned came from Olmstead. I remember that car had the dealer decal on the LH front fender lip underhood. Seems someone on CO posted a pic of Olmstead building circa mid-50s.
