Newt Godfrey Chevrolet was downtown on Main, by Roy Akers Funeral Chapel. It later became Ancira-Winton Chevrolet.
Don't recall where Newt Godfrey's was located. Roy Akers was over there somewhere! Turbiville Motors on Main I think became Main Lincoln Mercury! My dad bought a new Mercury at Turbiville Motors in 57' or 58' !! I had posted this months ago! Out of the blue got a DM from a man in College Station. His father Mr Turbiville owned the business. Nice fellow!!

Good old Satel's, BASS WeeJuns and Cords.

Interesting history on the Satel success story. Joseph Satel and family immigrated to the U.S. from Syria around the turn of the century. They were naturalized citizens around 1904. He and his son were both tailors in the US Army around 1930ish. Their success grew from there! And yes....the Alamo Heights location is an icon....and isn't going anywhere! Great customer service and very solid clientele there.

Riata Cadillac

O.R. Mitchell Dodge (building is still there, would love to rehab it!)
Jack Reiger Chrysler Plymouth (San Pedro/Basse)
Main Lincoln Mercury
Superior Pontiac

I don't remember a Northport, but went many times to Rollercade which is San Pedro and Jackson Keller, on a little street called Recoleta.

The Studebaker dealership building still stands. It is a brown brick two story building close to those apartments that burned down last week. It was Sherman Electronics for years. Does anybody know anything about the Studebaker Dealership?

Default "Bash" Hofner, McKinley Ave. and KAPE all Jazz radio

[quote=satx56;7290015]Adolph Hofner, I grew up two streets away from his house. Right down an old alley from us. He lived on Sayers St. many many years. He had a brother over in Highlands!"
Yes indeed, Emil "Bash" Hofner lived on Candler St. right where McKinley ran into it. The Pearl Wranglers bus parked there a lot and I saw it many times because my grandparents lived one block west on McKinley.
And speaking of old radio stations, a really small one was KAPE the black owned all jazz station that began in the early 1960s. It sat in the small building behind the Main Post Office downtown, that is still there but the station is long gone. I think it was no commercials, FM when that was a new thing in San Antonio and a"Jazz Club" for us true believers. Can't recall how long it lasted since I moved to Austin to attend UT in 1966 and am still here. BudB
