If your name is John, you could cut off the address part and make it like your own personal dealership for your Lark/Hawk/Avanti.

Walking by Johnny's dealership on the way to school in the '50's is what got me interested in Studebakers in the first place. I clearly remember the introduction of the 1950 bullet nose! For many years John kept parts and cars stashed away in barns, garages and basements. I know, I toured them and bought some parts too. Many of us "old timers" in Ocean Bay Chapter SDC knew him.

Knew him well and had visited not only his dealership but also his big Victorian home with a fantastic carriage hose (that had Studebaker literature in the attic). He started business in the fall of 1936 and his first sale was a '37 Dictator. His last name was Kraskouskas so that's why he chose Johnnys as a name for the dealership! He lived to be 102 if I recall. I visited with him and his son when he was 100. Have a nice b-w 8X10 photo of his dealership.
