We invite news items and top-quality photographs for the dealers section from readers for our consideration. Please include your telephone number.
We prefer that 25-year dealer award photos include only two people and that 50- or 75-year dealer award photos and dealer association officer photos include no more than six people. The subjects in the photos should be posed very close together.
