Jaremko Motors 1973

I'm feeling slightly underwhelmed. I guess they had sold all but one of their Zs, and the buyers had part-exchanged their domestics for them...?

Welcome to North America car culture...the used vehicles still get half of the front row in many dealers .There are some larger dealerships where a second building/business is needed to deal with flipping the trade-ins.

Below is a NJ Toyota dealer I used to go to.  The new car sales are in that building in the distance and their lot is out of the frame.  The building in the foreground and all the cars in the next lot are trade-ins. There are even more trade-ins but they are usually not worthy of sale on the lot and get pushed to auction where you can often get good deals.

Here is a Nissan Dealer in NJ where I saw my first Skyline GTR tribute in 2008/9.  It was in the show room.  The front had used cars like below. They now have a 2nd building dealing with trade-ins.

No different from just about anywhere else in the world I can think of then...

My point being that a photo of Jaremko Motors from '73 disappointingly doesn't show the vast queues of prospective 240Z owners around the block and teams of Jaremko-branded overall wearing minions throwing TOPY wheels and hubcaps in the dumpster, bolting on slot 'mag' wheels and plastic chrome belt line trim while salesmen in Sears sport coats and white loafers count wads of cash.

That Bronco looks nice though.

Hi blue, a lot of homework! I think it is a good idea to discuss about that at a new thread .😊

YES!   I would love to see a thread based on S30 activities in Japan in 1969. :love:

Since you asked for old photos, here are some pix I just posted in the 1974 Fun Run  thread.  The last photo shows about 20 S30s.  I wonder if we will ever see that many unmodified Zs together again...

This is where I get accosted by 60+ year old folks at a gas station or in traffic who say "I used to have one of those" or "My friends Dad drove one".  Great to see a gathering of S30s like that.

The middle picture above looks just like Jim's Swiss 1973 240Z we had in the shop last year.  The turn signals had to be above the bumper, so no cut-out in the front valence pieces for T/S.  His didn't have an air dam - I like that air dam...  Also, the rear license plate lighting couldn't be above the plate so the light was mounted on the rear bumper.

Horses?

Be polite.  Remember, the lady in the pictures is now almost 70 years old and the horses are dead.

Here are some old black and white photos. The last picture has an interesting story about a former Boeing engineer in Washington state. Here's the link:

So if we keep bring it up over and over again and talking about it incessantly... What do they call that?   LOL
