Adams Chevrolet in Norman Sold / Expansion Planned


Case, Patti, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Adams Chevrolet, operated for 14 years by dealer-operator Max Adams at 2424 W. Main in Norman, has been sold and reopened as Larry Spencer Chevrolet Inc.

The new dealership, which was approved Tuesday by the Oklahoma Motor Vehicle Division, will be operated by Larry Spencer as dealer-operator. Financial investors include Robert W. Moore of Bob Moore Cadillac in Oklahoma City, and Tim O'Neill, a Council Bluffs, Iowa, auto dealer, Moore said.

"Our 1988 models are going to be some of the best ever. A lot of people look at GM overall as being down. Buick and Cadillac (also GM divisions) have had a little tougher time. But Chevrolet is the (back bone) of this auto business, and they are not going to take a back seat to anybody for very long.

"We hope to have a long-lasting relationship with this community, and get involved and support it, and hope in turn they'll support us."

The dealership was among 27 applicants seeking licenses Tuesday from the Oklahoma Motor Vehicle Commission, 10 of which were in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area.

Others included:
