The story behind a ghost BMW dealership

The folks over at Endras BMW published a story today on a mysterious BMW dealership in Oakville, Ontario. The story of the ghost BMW dealership starts in 1988 when the company operating under the name “Citation Motors” had its license revoked before moving to Toronto and operating under the “Downtown BMW” name.

Interesting enough is the fact that the owner only sold off the name and operating license rather than the physical space and inventory. 23 years later and the showroom seems frozen in time with two BMW models in mint condition. In the typical 1980′s showroom interior furnishings, architecture, and design, BMW aficionados will notice a classy E28 5 Series and 635 CSI with beautiful BBS wheels.

The 6 Series has very low mileage, but most likely with some damaged caused by time.

Around the back you’ll find the shop, packed with BMWs, from a mint dark blue 635csi, to a 1984 733i, a dolphin blue E21 or 2002, and another 635csi.

MaxBimmer forum member “WhadUpp” managed to beat the window reflections to get some amazing pictures of the dealership from the outside. Great find, especially when you stumble upon such great used BMW cars
