In 1951 Bob Cochran established Cochran’s Auto Sales located at Franklin Blvd., Eugene Oregon. He ran the business there until specializing in hotrods and classics. In 1988 the business was moved to High Street (across from the 5th Street Public Market) and added a touch of High-Line European and exotic cars. At this time the business was renamed Cochran’s Executive Auto Sales. Mr. Cochran brought in a partner and retired in 1996. The dealership moved to the location at 1464 W. 6th Avenue, Eugene, Oregon in 2002 and the name was changed to Executive Auto Sales when Ron and Karen Pappel purchased the dealership. In July 2009 Ron sold the property on 6th Ave and the business is now internet based and continues to serve client and enthusiast throughout the United States and countries worldwide.
