It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton


NEW WHEELS: "Toyota has a terrific new ad campaign: 'A great way to keep moving forward!' Subliminally, it says you're a smart person to drive a Toyota." Dave Nappa, President of Dayton Toyota and Pre-Owned SuperCenter, stands beside a special new "Crew Max" regular-size silver Tundra pick-up truck.

Dayton Toyota at Rts. 130 and 522 Has Full Line of New and Used Cars

In the 50 years since Toyotas first arrived in the U.S., they not only boast the best-selling car in the country — the Camry — but they are on the brink of becoming the number one auto company here as well.

As sales increased throughout the 1960s, '70s, and '80s. the company established its U.S. headquarters in Torrance, Calif. and also opened factories across the country. Now, whether in a car, mini-van, SUV, cross-over, truck, or hybrid, Toyota is on the move!


GRACEFUL GARDENS: "We get customers from so many places, including New York and Philadelphia, because of our outstanding variety, good quality material, and our knowledge." David Scudder, of Ambleside Gardens & Nursery, is shown by two Kotohime ("Little Harp") Japanese maple trees, known for their diminutive leaves, red in spring, green in summer, and yellow/orange in autumn.

Expertise, Experience, Excellence at Ambleside Gardens & Nursery

Named for a village in the Lake District of England, Ambleside Gardens & Nursery was opened in 1965 by Townsend and Mary Scudder. Located on Route 206 North in Belle Mead, it was a smaller version of what it is today: a thriving family-owned nursery and landscape center.

"We started landscaping very early on, and we had plants, shrubs, and trees right away," says Mrs. Scudder. "We were trying hard to carry uncommon material, including tropical plants from the west coast that hadn't been seen here before. It was our raison d'etre, and we continue to be known for that."
