This is not our dealership. Cars were shipped by train and unloaded at the co-op behind us back in the day.

A copy of a bill of sale from 1913 from the Petoskey store found in our attic years ago. Not sure how it got here, records show this store not opening until 1917.

Looking at the prices oil was $.15/qt and gas was $.22/gal, so oil was cheaper than gas now oil is $4/qt and gas is $2.50/gal
