Crown Pontiac [gone]
St. Petersburg, FL
Crown Pontiac opened here around 1968-1969. This oval-shaped showroom was most likely from then. This photo is from 2005. In 2011, this building was demolished and replaced.

former Cadillac-LaSalle showroom
West Palm Beach, FL
This Cadillac-LaSalle showroom was built in 1925 for the Palm Beach Cadillac Company. The interior features original woodwork, including a cypress ceiling and a fireplace. The building housed Ragtops Motorcars when these photos were taken in 2009. By 2014, the building had been painted white and undergoing renovation. The building now houses the EmKo art gallery.

former Tomlinson Cadillac
Lakeland, FL
Tomlinson Cadillac occupied this building by 1946 and I assume they were the original tenant. In 1980, Tinney Cadillac took over the building. In 2002, Boring Business Systems moved in. By 2016, the building was housing the LifePoint Church. There is also another building just east of this one which is occupied by Boring and was probably part of Tomlinson's dealership. [map]

Gulfview Motors [gone]
Port Richey, FL
Gulfview Motors looked a lot like a Woody's Smorgasburger. I believe the building was constructed in 1964. Does anyone know what was here originally? I have heard that it was a pancake house and later an RV dealership. Gulfview Motors moved into the building in 1985. The dealership closed in 2009 and the building was demolished in 2011.

Myers Antiques & Fine Art
St. Petersburg, FL
Myers Antiques & Fine Art occupies a former Jeep dealership from 1947. It also housed Sun Coast Edsel from 1957-1958. This photo is from 2009. By 2014, the building had been painted white. [map]
