The Nelson name in the automotive business goes back nearly one hundred years to Pam’s Great-Great and Great Grandfathers, Hans and Nelse Nelson who immigrated to the United States from Sweden in the late 19th Century. They owned a livery stable with horses for hire in Ballard. The transportation business continued on with Nelse’s son, Stanley Nelson Sr. who in 1915, owned and operated a one-pump gas station, tire store and the only jitney shuttle service connecting Ballard and Seattle at that time. In 1922, he became a Chevrolet dealer when GM came by and asked if he wanted a franchise.Inaccurate data? Flag it here.
