The 1970's

COOTY’S GARAGE

 

As noted in the previous section, the only authorized dealership in all of Oregon in the ‘70’s was Sagner’s Motor Mart which started in 1961 and remained operational until the late ‘70’s.  There were however a few independent repair facilities that worked on Citroëns.  One of these was Cooty's Garage which frequently advertised Citroën repair capability.

Cooty's was run by a man named Paul Nuttal who still lives in the Portland area and was a Citroën owner himself.  In the mid-1970's Cooty’s wanted to capitalize on the fact that Sagner’s operation was winding down and specifically advertised as such.  Cooty's Garage itself seemed to wind down in the late 1970's. 

 

Cooty’s operated initially from 8503 SW Terwilliger and later from 2244 E. Burnside, which is now a pet food store.
