Groucho's Car Lot
Groucho’s Circus Lot – November 1954 – Here is a car dealer in Minot in 1954 that I had not heard of…. Groucho’s Circus lot located 1 block west of the Courthouse and Groucho’s Jr. Circus lot at the foot of North Hill. I discovered the Groucho’s was actually Main Motors in Minot. Groucho’s was advertising – “Coming Soon! The new 1955 DeSoto and Plymouth. The Most radical changes of them all”. Main Motors was the DeSoto and Plymouth dealer. Groucho’s also carried used vahicles. In 1954 they were advertising a 1947 Pontiac for $195.00… a 1947 Chevrolet coupe for $175.00 and 1951 Nash 4 door for $695.00.
