Quite a few DOTS cars were bought new at Good, including this '65 Impala.
Über-dealerships located in unincorporated county areas don't have to pay city sales taxes, so the older car dealerships located in urban centers- such as Alameda's Park Street and Oakland's Auto Row- have been feeling the squeeze.
The old Ford dealership next door was built back in the early 1920s, one of the first purpose-built automotive showroom buildings in the area and a really cool piece of architecture.
