My Father William C. Brown was a good friend of Charles “Chuck”. Marlett while both worked at Hoosier Cadillac in Indy. W.C. Brown was Manager of the Body Shop and Mr. Chuck Marlett was a.salesman there and I first met Nr. Marlett at the state of the art dealership In 1956 in their showroom. Mr Marlett or Chuck as my Dad addressed him was wearing a blue suit, white dress shirt and a red tie. My Dad told me in later years Chuck Marlett and his staff were so professional as was Bert Donovan owner of Hoosier Cadillac! Those were the days of the huge Cadillacs with chrome and Chuck Marlettevfit in perfectly as a gentleman salesman and a patriotic veteran that I can still remember today in that showroom located on North Illinois Street and on Meridian Street in Indianapolis! Chuck look up my Dad W.C Brown and swap stories of your days in the automotive business and enjoy your time together now! SO MOTE IT BE
