Johnson Chevrolet – Opens –

 on December 6, 1965, Johnson Chevrolet ( formerly Frosaker Motors) opened in its new location at 1800 South Broadway. The new building was 27,800 square feet all on one floor. The General Manger and new car manager was Al Gimse. The used car manager was J.S. Nowak. Department managers included Floyd Vedvig – Service; Chester Nowak – Parts; and R. Cameron Mills – Finance & Insurance. In April of 1965, just before the move to the new building their ad in the newspaper was proclaiming a Zing into Spring …. Featuring the Chevrolet Corvair. The Corvair Corsa featured a new sporty appearance and handling package. A 180 hp turbo charged rear engine was also available. Also available were the Chevrolet, Chevelle, Chevy II or the Corvette… I’m sure a line of pickups was also available .  Johnson Chevrolet eventually became Auran Chevrolet and is now Ryan Chevrolet
