Mama’s Used Cars

West Ashley. 1940 Savannah Hwy. 556-6262

Summerville. 1020 N. Main St. 821-8900

While their bargain-basement-priced used cars are bona fide steel and rubber, Mama herself is but a figment of Palmetto Ford’s imagination. Rumor has it the character of Mama was based on an old employee at Palmetto Ford, but since we couldn’t get anyone from the company to call us back, we can’t say for sure. One thing we do know is that the mammoth inflatable Mama that stands atop the West Ashley store has the biggest bosom in the Lowcountry. Perhaps that’s why, year after year, Mama’s has and probably will continue to lure shoppers looking for a good ol’ deal on a great old car.
