This sure looks like a place we saw one time between Weatherford and Ft. Worth Texas, no one was there that day, and there was some nice stuff!! John

I was thinking the same thing. That sign is a real piece of Studebaker history.

Unfortunately, I don't have any other pics of this place. I just found this one on the web.

That is John Brooks place in Weatherford Texas. One of the best Studebaker people you will ever meet. His father worked in ElPaso for Studebaker as far back as 1916. IIRC.
Went there in the early 70's needing a speedometer gear and he knew the tooth count and the correct Studebaker part # off the top of his head.
A family business as his brother worked with him at the time. He must be getting up there in years now he was about mid to late 40's then.

That exact sign just sold on eBay for $910. Looked to be as good or better than this one. I'm on the iPhone so I can't post the link.
