The Southern Motors Legacy
Southern Motors began its long and respected history among automobile dealers over 75 years ago when its founder, Julius Kaminsky, recognized the essential role automobiles would play in the lives of his friends and neighbors in the Savannah area. Being one of nine children, Julius understood the importance of hard work and strong family commitment. As a young man not financially able to open his own dealership but wanting to help his parents support the family, Julius began his automobile career the hard way by driving his one car, a Nash, to Jacksonville, Florida, where his first customers lived.
It took many long days and several years of dedication to his dream before Julius could open the doors of his own dealership, Southern Motors, on Broughton Street in downtown Savannah, Georgia. Julius was committed to making Southern Motors a place where his business values would be reflected in the positive experience of his customers and employees. Quality products and attentive customer service were the hallmarks of a Southern Motors sale.
During the initial decades of operation, Southern Motors represented Nash, which, through various corporate mergers and sales, later became Rambler and then American Motors/Jeep. Of these manufacturers, only Jeep remains, making Southern Motors the world’s oldest active Jeep dealer. Regardless of the product sold, however, Southern Motors’ commitment to the customer remained constant.
Through its reputation for customer satisfaction and loyalty, Southern Motors became the first Honda automobile franchisee in coastal Georgia. Although he never desired or anticipated relocating Southern Motors, the company’s growth and the addition of a third franchise, Acura, required such a move. In 1987, Southern Motors moved its Honda and Jeep franchises into a new dealership in the heart of Savannah’s rapidly growing Southside. This was soon followed by the renovation of Southern Motors on Broughton Street to accommodate the Acura line. But the growth of the Southern Motors family of dealerships did not stop there. In June of 1994, a full-line Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership, Springfield Chrysler Auto Mart, was established in Springfield, Georgia, and, in late 1990’s, a dealership specializing in late model, used cars, Rincon Select Automotive Sales, began operation in Rincon, Georgia.
All of this expansion was possible because Julius’s children (sons Jay, Myron and Danny, and daughter Toby) and grandchildren (Myron’s sons Adam and Ross) shared his vision and made Southern Motors a family business. They are active owner-operators who work diligently to ensure that the tradition of excellence begun so long ago continues today.
Every day, the Southern Motors family of dealerships strives to maintain the legacy and standards of quality, customer service and honest values established by its founder, Julius Kaminsky, over 75 years ago.
