42 dealers selling Chevrolets for more than 80 years

In last week's Automotive News I wrote that I am searching for dealers whose family has had a Chevrolet franchise for more than 80 years. I listed the four dealerships we knew about.

Before I left the office Friday, I had heard from 27 more.

Since then, another 11 have let me know that, hey, they've been around a long time, too!
