Wentworth and Irwin purchased it from there before campaigning it.

Wentworth retained his Nash distributorship into the modern era when Nash
became Rambler then American Motors. Charles W. Wentworth Jr. took the
reins of the family business in the 1960s, and in 1969 brought some much-
needed publicity to the firm through a pair of AMX drag cars. Prospective car
buyers were invited to come to the firm's 1005 West Burnside dealership to
see the 'AMX  Wheel Stander... an engineering job they said couldn't be done.'

In 1978, when a struggling AMC bought back its franchise, then-president
Charles Jr. bought a Chevrolet dealership in Portland. His sons, Greg, Scott
and Bob Wentworth - the fourth generation - had joined the business in the
1970s, and in 1982, Charles Jr. bought a Buick dealership in Eugene, Ore.,
two hours south of Portland.

Charles W. Wentworth Jr. passed away in 1992, and Greg, Scott and Bob
Wentworth were faced with sharing control of a business that for decades had
been run by their father and grandfather. They elected to sell off
