Tommie Vaughn Ford


Recommended Posts

They need a new showroom...its a tiny showroom. Also worth noting as you come over the old rail-road track bridge where 6th would be, they have parked all their superduty trucks in the shape of a Christmas tree, with a red truck being the topper...

I just thought it was cool to see, so I thought I'd share.

I've purchased five vehicles from one inside-the-loop dealership over the years. In 1986 and again 1993 I bought used cars from Tommie Vaughn Ford on Shepherd as well. It is so convenient when one has to take the car in for warranty work, or the inevitable "call back" on a used car, to have a place that is close by.

About 3 years ago I bought a Mini Cooper from the dealer on the Southwest Freeway at Beltway 8. The car was fine and the dealership did what they were supposed to do but the inconvenience of trips to the service department has really influenced my consideration of future purchases. Let's see, that limits me to Ford (Tommie Vaughn), Chevrolet (Knapp), Volkswagen, Audi (Momentum), or Mercedes-Benz (Greenway). Did I overlook any?

Oh yeah and Helfman River Oaks Chrysler Jeep off of Kirby.

Also there is Advantage BMW and Stewart Cadillac both in Midtown.

Of course I remembered those three a few hours after I posted my incomplete list. It's rather strange that I forgot Helfman because I bought a new Jeep Cheokee there in late 1995 and Lt. Alan Helfman himself handed me the keys.

My father was good friends with one of the salesmen at Bland Cadillac (also at one time Bland-Willis and Bland-Curran) which was last located at Bagby and Gray. He would call Dad up every other year or so to tell him about a really nice, low mileage Caddy some "River Oaks dowager" had just traded in. Dad made a few nice deals on a some really well kept, late model cars.

The last car he bought from Bland right after the first oil embargo in the early '70s wasn't a Cadillac though - it was a 6 cylinder BMW sedan. I was a few months away from getting my driver's license and was beside myself waiting to get behind the wheel of that car. It was without a doubt the most washed and waxed vehicle in our neighborhood at the time. :)
