Just realized that my posts were a day short of exactly 2 years apart, so I wouldn't hold your breath Domi ;)

Well I finally got word from MAROON dealership. Great news is they got FRESH stickers that are exactly the same as they were 30 years ago.

You're right, but this could bring up some more cool pictures, like the blue stamp of ALEXAKOS

That is a business card made back in the 80's!
hahaha You are right it looks as bad as a stamp.

Nice Erik!
Just got word from Maroon KIA dealer..
He said he made a mistake, their new stickers do not have the native head on them :(
Contacted DMC Museum in case they can unfold the story of Maroon Pontiac / DMC dealership story.

HOW COOL IS THAT!????

Got my brand new MAROON DEALERSHIP stickers. Anybody wants a couple of those juts contact Mrs Lynne Klosowski and Maroon KIA and I am sure she will be more than happy to hook you up.

I lived on So. Tacoma Way in '88....down the road from a mall that had a gorilla living there for [I think] 20+ years.

That's awesome :thumbup2:
Did you write to her by email and just ask for stickers?

Long story!
Found the dealership fanpage of FB cause they did not reply to me over their webpage contact form (nobody ever replys from their webpage contact form.... Why they do they keep it for anyway?)

After a month or so I get a reply from the dealership owner over FB and he forwarded me to the woman in charge! :)
