A trivial question, just out of idle curiosity.
A certain model which shall be nameless but is well known to Forum members was produced by Milestone Miniatures in their "43rd Avenue" series. And now some Autocult models are sold as "Avenue 43" which happens to be the French way of saying "43rd Avenue". An odd coincidence.

For want of anything better to do I've been trying to find out whether 43rd Avenue has (or had) any particular historical significance in relation to cars, but I haven't come up with an answer.

Maybe at some time in the past 43rd Avenue in New York was lined with car showrooms? If so, Google doesn't acknowledge the fact.

As I say, a very trivial question, but maybe somebody here can suggest an explanation (assuming there even is one).
