Actually, that's not quite true. There is at least one other marquee 
with a functioning dealership that lays claim to the same exact thing, 
which isn't refuted either, with an orphaned automaker.

The business still functions, and never closed shop, and never 
abandoned the marquee name. If Rob has a dealership licence to sell 
cars, then he's a dealership. Otherwise, what's the precident that 
states that you cannot remain an authorized dealer of new cars, if the 
dealership happens to stop making them? You do bring up a good point 
Claude that's never been challenged before, about the dealership. 
Could other companies that are still in business lay claim to be a 
factory authorized dealership/service center for an automaker, if that 
automaker no longer exists to challenge that claim? Good question. But 
unless we ever see it challenged in court to get an official legal 
ruling, it's a moot point.

However, since the service portion of the business never folded up, 
I'd certainly say that P.J. Grady predates all others. Investment 
doesn't have any defining impact on this either. But, if you do want 
to argue that point, it can be challenged. The Grady family did start 
with a $25K buy-in of company stock, and had to buy their parts at 
list price from DMCA while DMC was in business, whereas lots of other 
vendors got theirs from auctions, and bulk purchases from dealerships 
that sold off their inventories and substancial discounts after DMC 
folded. It's all symantecs at this point.
