No more Ellis Brooks Chevrolet, it seems. The longtime dealer on Van Ness Avenue is apparently switching to used cars only, which probably means it will be gone and replaced by a big box retailer within a year or two. The really sad thing will be the loss of all those great bits of neon on the building, most of which will now refer to a brand the dealer no longer sells and will have to be removed.
One thought on “See Ellis Brooks Today. For What?”
Besides the great neon, I always loved the senior Mrs. Brooks in the ads. She felt like a true remnant of the once real San Francisco without pushing any self-conscious quirkiness.
