The Old Car Dealer Dept.

1973 Yellow Pages ad

Before Great Lakes Motors moved to Main Street in Clarence, they occupied the building at 3068 Main St. in Buffalo. Back in 1973 when this Yellow Pages ad ran, they were selling not only the Mercedes-Benz line, but also British Triumph sports cars. Triumph, and most other British cars, by then were well on there way of disappearing from the U.S. market. Great Lakes Motors eventually became exclusively a Mercedes dealer, and over time changed their name to Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo (even though they technically aren’t in Buffalo).

The heavily redecorated building at 3068 Main St. is currently home to the Clark Academy of the Performing Arts, and the south side of the building houses part of the neighboring car dealer Four M Sales.

    Rus Thompson owns a business on Grand Island, he did NOT vote in NF’s ?
    This appears to be a direct attack on him because of his activism for calling out those in elected positions that haven’t been on the up & up with the community he lived and does business in.
    I know that Mr. Thompson spends most of his time working at his business on Grand Island than he does in NF.
    He did file an affidavit and it was accepted by ECBOE or his vote would not have been counted. Maybe it’s more the fault of ECBOE?
    If he voted in both Grand Island and Niagara Falls then I would umderstand the charges.
    It’s not as if Cooke lost by one vote anyway?

      Did the ECBoE force him to sign a false affidavit?

    The majority of people living on Grand Island know the true story here. Rus Thompson may be convicted but Grand Islanders will never think he is guilty and once again all of Grand Island will see local government as one that serves itself over Grand Islanders.
