See Ellis Brooks Today. For What?

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.

  1. 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.
