Wapato Jail in North Portland was completed 14 years ago for $58 million. Not a single inmate has occupied the building. It's going to be sold for $10 million. The county better take it because the appraisal came in at $8 million. What stupid idiots that run this city.
Ron was 29 years old when this photo was taken. He purchased his own dealership from Gregg-Owens Chevrolet on Barbur Blvd for $350,000 in 1960. Ron had worked 16 years in the car business with his father and brother Marv. Ron opened the new store with Corvettes, Corvairs Chevy trucks and cars. Harold Gregg sold the store at his point of retirement. Ron was the first to master the art of car ads on the television. "Out Barbur Way"
