From Tom Jameson:

The article about Dream On Futon describes the property as originally a Sears tire store. Actually, I purchased my first brand new car there in 1959, when it was a Volvo dealership. I forget the owner's name, but his brother had the Volvo dealership in Ypsilanti.

from George Gilligan:

In 1959 the Volvo dealership in Ann Arbor was owned by Duncan Payne. They also sold the Triumph TR-3 sports car at the same location. His brother Tom Payne owned the Volkswagen, not Volvo, dealership in Ypsilanti.
