Anybody got any information about the dealerships in these pictures to share with Alden Jewell @ Flickr?


FWIW I'd be happy to own any of the four Larks in the shot of Western Motors...

From the Website about the '59 Larks:

www.studebaker-info.org (http://www.studebaker-info.org/) has a dealer listing, and the only Western Motors Studebaker dealership that comes up was located in La Crosse, Wisconsin (718 N. 3rd). And 'Kube' (see sign above the most left Lark) seems to be a common family name in La Crosse.

This might be of interest to those listing all of the Studebaker Dealers on one of our strings here.

Being the first year of the Lark this dealer was aggressive & wasnt afraid to spend money such as the big neon sign on the left. Studebaker needed more like him.
