Default Pictures of old Chevrolet Dealerships? Anyone?

I was looking for good pictures of Dana Chevrolet South Gate and Mann Chevrolet in Los Angeles etc. Even some Porsche stuff from Vasek Polak or George Follmer Porsche etc. Anything of the 1960's. Anyone have any thing to post. What I have found is very poor in quality. Interested in anything interesting like Yenko, Baldwin Motion, Berger etc. Found some good stuff on line for those dealerships but anyone have anything else to share.

Here are some pictures of Don Allen Chevrolet in Pittsburgh, PA. If you do searches for some of the historical societies or libraries you can find alot of info or even by contacting them they can do research and find alot of info.
I've been in contact with the library in Arlington, Va and will be going up there after the 1st of the year. They have pictures and newspaper ads from Bob Peck Chevrolet, where my '74 was delivered to. They will copy any ads for me. Don't know if my Vette was special ordered or dealer stock, but I will be looking at ads from the end of '73 through the 1st quarter of '74 to see if it was in stock maybe the Vette will show up in an ad.

I grew up a short distance from Yenko. I remember being driven by there in the late '60s. I was only 8 or 9 at the time but remember seeing a lot of Camaros in all different colors sitting on the lot. Didn't have conception of what they were at the time.

I'd get the greatest Christmas present possible just to find the name of the original owner of mine. The picture is priceless.

Yeah, I was fortunate that my 62, which I bought via eBay, had an original invoice in the glove box. given the original owners name and town, I tracked him down by phone. then the second lucky stroke was he held onto all his original documents and photos.
