  • Kinman dealership to keep Chevrolet

    No news is good news, and that’s exactly how Herb Kinman views the fact that he has not received a letter from General Motors about closing his Chevrolet dealership.

    “We definitely under no circumstances got a letter from General Motors,” Kinman said in an interview last week.

    First of all, most of our help comes from our families and friends, not from people on the fair board, always seems unless its convention time they have something more important to do.
