NEW CAR-BUYING PLAN - The Automobile Club of Southern California is offering a used-car purchasing service to its 4.5 million members. Thirty participating Southern California dealers will offer used vehicles to Auto Club members at or below mid-Kelley Blue Book prices - between wholesale and retail. The program is designed to eliminate price negotiation for club members.
ROLL OVER, BEETHOVEN - The joint will be jumpin' Thursday, July 17, at Dealers Auto Auction in Spokane, Wash., when rock 'n' roll pioneer Chuck Berry takes the stage as part of a two-day auction gala. The sale is patterned after a similar event last July, when Jerry Lee Lewis played the Spokane auction. That event drew 3,300 dealers and guests.
