I salute everyone for the info, it must have been an exciting place to be in the fifties, parts stacked high. I understand this went on right where the ACD showroom is located.
You have to have a lot of respect for Ralph Butler to have done all those interiors.

I think it was Ora Shoudel, not Shoudek. And Butler's first name was Ralph, in U.S. spelling.

Otherwise, great IDing, Torsten.

I can tell you with 100% certainty this is John McQuown. He is my grandfather and I look like his twin when you see pictures of us at the same age. He has shared so much of his knowledge and experiences with us. Although he is my grandfather, he is truly one of the most remarkable individuals I have ever had a chance to know. Come take a tour of the museum with him on Tuesday mornings. It is an truly amazing experience you won't forget.

Yep, that's our John. I worked part-time at the museum back in the early/mid 90's and got to know him pretty well.

Also see him a few times when he comes out to the dealership to get his vehicle looked at. :D
