Last Sunday, I was out flying with a friend, just knocking some holes in the sky, when the friend mentioned he would like to get some lunch. So, I dropped us into a little strip South East of Portland called Mulino where they have a nice little airport cafe.
As we were sitting there eating our lunch, this guy noticed my Durant Motors T-shirt I was wearing, and came over to tell me that his grandfather owned a Durant dealership in Portland! Wow! Well I got his name (Forrest Woods) and number and plan to contact him soon to get any info he has on the business. Who knows, his grandfather could have been the one that sold my car to my grandfather!
I would be interested to see if this is the dealership that was pictured on the website some months back. Several of us from the area questioned where it was located in Portland. I know that my 29 Roadster was sold at the old Durant/Essex/Hudson dealership that is now Wentworth Chev on Grand Avenue. It was called Grand Avenue Motors then, but the picture was not in that area. It will be interesting to see what you find out.
