Bluebonnet Chrysler Dodge
New Braunfels, TX
I believe the Bluebonnet Chrysler Dodge dealership was established in 1928. I don't know when this building or sign were built. Between 2014 and 2016, new signs were on the building although the dealership was still operating under the same name and selling the same brands. The neon sign had been moved to a building on the left just beyond the frame of this photo. For more, see this website. [map]

former showroom
Kingsville, TX
This former showroom housed Eddie Yaklin Ford Lincoln Mercury. The dealership apparently moved to a new location in town. This photo is from 2011. The building was still vacant in 2016. [map]

former Bandeen Motor Co.
Stamford, TX
former Vandergriff Chevrolet showroom
Arlington, TX
This Bandeen Motor Co. dealership was built in 1940. Bandeen was there by 1955 and may have been the original tenant. The building now houses the Faith Chapel. The [map]

This former Vandergriff Chevrolet showroom was built in the mid-1960s. The building has been demolished. However, the sign was saved and installed in Vandergriff Park in 1996. It was painted black when these photos were taken in 2011. It was repainted the original dark blue after that. The original round Chevrolet sign panel revolved around the "V". For more, see this website. [map]

The original Vandergriff dealership building from 1928 has been restored.

former Villa Oldsmobile
Lubbock, TX
The Villa Oldsmobile dealership was built in 1971. When these photos were taken in 2017, the building had housed Tec's Autoplex. That business appeared to be closed. I assume the larger building in the top row housed Villa's new car showroom and the smaller building in the second row served as the used car office. [map]

former Inter-Continental Motors
San Antonio, TX
The Inter-Continental Motors dealership was designed by O'Neil Ford & Associates and built in 1964. The dealership sold Volkswagens. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

Corpus Christi Electric Company
Corpus Christi, TX
These Corpus Christi Electric Company buildings were built in 1965 for Lew Williams' Chevrolet City. They later housed Gainan Chevrolet. The smaller building in the second row was used as the used car office. The building with the sawtooth roof housed the service bays. For more, see this website. [map]
