“At one time the Brundage Co. brought thousands of VW cars here, in fact it was the distribution center for the Southeast. This shows how the vehicle was taken off the German ship.” LS

Brundage Motors was an early importer of German made vehicles to Jacksonville starting with Volkswagen and Porsche vehicles in the late 1950′s. Brundage Motors later became Brumos Motor Cars.

But, the next set of cars included a 1000+hp corvette. It broke on the line, so on that night, a stock smart car beat a modified corvettes time by approximately 21 seconds in the 1/4mile
