Meg the 87 came from Cross-Country AMC in Indy

Marua the 90 came from EGolf in Hendersonville, NC

 

Galeana looks like it's still alive and thriving today.

Pete - A little off topic but tied to your first post - Don Drennen in Hoover was the last of the Drennen dealerships who were among the oldest businesses in the Birmingham, originally selling horse-drawn carriages and wagons.  There is now a brewery in what was the stables for a livery service that was adjacent to the Drennen properties.  I believe it may have been Drennen’s livery service but can’t say for sure.

When I was a good bit younger, Drennen had a Cadillac dealership and a Buick dealership across the street from each other in downtown Birmingham.  My father was a Buick man and bought several Buick’s from Drennen.

Don Drennen was an offshoot of the downtown dealerships, set up in what was at that time the fast-growing Hoover area.

I don’t remember when they picked up the Jeep dealership but we almost leased a Grand Cherokee there about 25-30 years ago.

They lost the Jeep line in 2009 when automakers consolidated their efforts into larger dealerships (the start of the mega-dealers) and then were bought by Hendricks in 2011.

My '89, that I inherited from my grandfather, came from Galloway Motors.  The unfortunate thing is still 'social distancing' from it's transmission.  Someday I'll put it back in and enjoy driving it again.

Best I can do. It was already cropped from a much larger image of a truck I no longer have...

That's interesting. In the 1980s we had a "Pollard friendly Ford" dealership in Lubbock, TX

got inspired when I brought home a tailgate from this trip and the poor sticker was faded away.  so in the coming days I'm going to hunt down all I can find, either in the barn or in my photo archives.  what's on your truck? :D

 

this particular one is from my newer 88

This is from My '88 Jeep Comanche Long bed, I bought it in October '20 from the  Original owner. I also have a '87 short bed Comanche I have had for 32 years. It doesn't have any Dealer tag on it.
