The Cars Of Proctor

The Cars Of Proctor
and the North End of Tacoma

Having recently moved to the Proctor District in the North End of Tacoma recently it didn’t take much to fall in love with this place.  The history, the sense of community, the local businesses and the people truly make Proctor a home.

Being in walking or biking distance from the water (kayak time), Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium (and the rest of Point Defiance Park), shopping and restaurants in Proctor as well as Old Town means more exercise.

Our neighbors are always outside.  We chat almost daily and everyone is more than happy to say hello or good morning, especially on our Sunday morning walk to Metropolitan Market for coffee.

We’re close to downtown, the museums, shopping and the Tacoma Dome for events and shows.

What’s most fascinating about this place – the cars.

Very much absent from here are the high end and luxury brands.  In fact, the new cars are small Fords and other simple, get from point A to point B ones. No extravagance. No “keeping up with the Jonses”.

I was recently reading an article about the lack of cars from my era – the 70s and 80s.  The cars I learned to drive.  The ones I always wanted.  There are usually plenty of collectibles and antiques anywhere but it’s the collection from this time period, some in immaculate condition and others worn and beaten, that call Proctor home which draw my eye.

I’d love your comments and if you can add information from Make to Model to year along with any unique facts, I’d love it.

I’m all about networking and meeting new people. I’m always happy to connect online and if you’re in the Tacoma, WA or South Sound Area, I’d enjoy meeting over a good cup of coffee to chart about social media or life in general.    The coffee is on me!

In the meantime, enjoy my personal thoughts and ramblings.



About Robert Nissenbaum

As a consultant, speaker and educator I provide common sense, practical and actionable social media advice to small business owners and solopreneurs. Active using LinkedIn and Facebook since 2007, Twitter since 2009, Google+ and Pinterest by invitation before public release and now Instagram, the advice, support and training I offer are based on close to a decade of experience in using social media for my personal and own business brands, not simply what I have been taught or read. I approach social media from a very different perspective than most in the industry. I teach small business owners to shift their view of social media; to understand it’s less about their content and more about networking and building relationships. I work with clients to create the blueprint they need to succeed, help put the infrastructure and systems in place and offer continuing support. Social media is more than a career. It’s my passion. Having spoken on and taught social media since 2011, you’ll get a knowledgeable, seasoned speaker who will deliver quality content without fluff and up-sells. I am available to speak or facilitate social media training workshops at your event on a variety of topics and have presented in Washington and Arizona. Speaking engagements and workshops can be tailored to your needs with presentations as short as 20-30 minutes and training workshops starting at 90 minutes.
