Does anyone know or know where to find info on how many MM dealers there were in the U.S. and how many in each state back in the 40"s through the 70"s? We took over a MM dealership in South Central Nebraska (Edgar) A few years after the WFE merger. Any info would be interesting for all. Thanks.

The Siouxland MM collectors have an ongoing project to identify all of the known MM dealerships. They had their current map at the Albert City Iowa show. I don't have a contact for you but the Siouxland collectors are out if South Dakota.

no such list is know to exist, .. yet.

However there are some "district lists" that give a snap-shot in time.

I have been compiling a list of all know MM dealers for the past 25 years.

I have some over 1300 accounted for last count, in 30 different countries! the majority are US dealerships.
