Picturing the Past 171: Stewart-Potts showroomPosted Tuesday, December 4, 2012, at 4:06 PM
Stewart-Potts Motors' showroom in spring 1978. (T-G file photo)
It's spring 1978, and they're showing one of the last full-size LTDs; 1978 was their last year. My parents had a similar '74 LTD; big bulky cars with weak brakes and fingertip-loose steering.
That's very much an old-style showroom compared to the big ones we see today. Look out the far-left big window and you'll see an old car repair shop, where the US Bank parking lot is today, and the back of the Dixie Hotel.
