Reliving the 60's


Dunlap Chevrolet, Macon, Georgia
« on: December 14, 2005, 02:23:41 pm »

My Chevelle was sold new at this dealership. Thanks to member "Rat Pack" I was able to source the company that took over Dunlap in the ealy 1980's.  It is now Youmans Chevrolet, Macon, Georgia.

A month or so ago I contacted them and talked to the General Manager, George Youmans.  As it turns out, some offspring of the orignal Dunlap family now work for Youmans.  One in particular is a real nostalgia buff.  Anyway, I asked if they had any old stuff they would be willing to copy and/or send me.  Their package arrived today.

Got two original Dunlap decals and one of their dealer advertising plates.

Here's a picture of the dealership circa 1967 and a picture of their lot circa late 70's or early 80's.

Appears they were more than just a sales outlet.  Here's an invitation to their plant to view the 25th anniversary Buick (established 1904?) which makes it around 1929. Also on the invitation was a picture of their plant.
