    The Smith Cairins Ford dealership was on Paxton Ave. in Bronxville right there where the Bronx River Perkway is when I was a kid. I remember seeing the brand new ’56 cars there.

    Can you imagine if the government buys out GM and MoPar but not FoMoCo…

    A lot of American buyers ( like myself…) who don’t like the idea of gov. socialists taking over free enterprises will switch over to Ford products in the future and that could have BIG consequences… Discussion anybody…???

    Great Drake,
    the dealership in Mahopac is called Park Ford,
    was told that is is now a factory owned delaership??
    I purchased my last 3 vehicles for my FD from them,
    nice dealerhip to deal with.
    the OLD Mt.Kisco ford dealership
    (I worked there 73-75) is now a Honda dealership,
    The Volts family does own Meadowland, & Brewster ford
    plus “Bill Voltz of Westchester” the Dodge/Jeep dealership
    on rte 202 in Yorktown and more in Ct.

    A now meory is the Fisher Brothers chevy dealership in Mahopac,
    Mr. Fisher passed on just before time started to go sour,
    the family sold and now Drew is at Arroway in Katonah,
    Teddy is in Mohegan Lake Audi,
    and Norm is enjoying retirement, and Mom Fisher
    is doing well.

    Drake Dude,,
    the Park Ford dealer in Mahopac is also the home for the
    lincoln Mercury dealership that burnt down in Peekskill about 3-4 yr now.
    Forgot the name of the dealership when in peekskill.
    next to the old Mt. Kisco Ford building going North buuuurrr Cold up there 😆
    is the Buick/GMC dealership next to the OLD carvel stand. 😉
    Volt from what I remember was the last ones in the old Salerno building
    with GMC after they took over Lazars from Peekskill, near the armony.
    NoW the salerno building is empty, Volts put their stuff in the old Nappali marine building
    down 202 past where Lexington Ave comes out on 202, past Curry Honda
    that usto be Curry Chevrolet. Now Chevrolet on 202 is Taconic Chevrolet
    owned by an Oriential person, that is where Randy Tompkins is working after
    Fisher Bros. closed. Know most of these palces from dealing with them
    for services and parts for the fleet I take care of for BOCES, Yorktown.
    Frain Bade, that was a long one, Bottom line loosing a lot of GOOD old
    style dealership ALL over, THOSE WERE THE DAY, 🙁 🙁 🙁
