Does anyone know the name of this dealership?
I seem to recall that the original Kaiser / Frazer
dealer in Portland was Tonkin motors. Not Marv or Ron
but an earlier generation of "Tonkins." Might this be
Tonkin Kaiser / Frazer Motors?
"Tiger" Tom

It was owned by Ron & Marv Tonkin's father.

wow! i knew kaiser made ships, but never knew they made cars! wow!

Tom,

I think that was owned by the Rasmussen family. Don started in the car biz selling K-F's and Studebakers, then turned it into the first Mercedes-Benz store when those other marques went out of business.

This sure wins a few points in the bike uglification process.

I'm trying to figure out where the "Portland Motors" dealership was. Was it where Monte Shelton is on SW Burnside or on NE Grand, where the Stark vacuum store is now? If it was 1950, I think it was before Mr. Tonkon owned it.
