In the late 40s and all through the 50's, there was a new car "season". A time, usually in September or October, when all the new models of cars arrived in town. It was really a big deal in our town. Most of the car dealers were on our main street and they stayed open later so families could see the cars. In those days, there were dramatic changes in the cars and you could tell the different models just by looking at them. I remember the Ford dealer brought in the Clidesdale horses and put them in the shop. In our town, the fanciest show room was the Chrysler show room. It had a double tall room with a chandelier hanging down. All three of the cars, Chrysler, Plymouth, and Dodge, were sold in the dealership. Each General Motors car had it's own dealership except for Cadillac and Oldsmobile. They were in the same dealership. Lincoln and Mercury were, also, in the same dealership. Everybody looked forward to the season.
