The building looks vaguely familiar, must have been on Road Side America thread.

Mathis Motors Studebaker. Mr Mathis and his father sold Studebakers this location and in Egg Harbor City NJ.
I believe they sold their last new Studebaker in 1968, a left over, left over.
Got to know Mr. Mathis the younger quite well, he was in the Army Air Corps. can't quite remember but the 8th Air Force comes to mind. Same as my Dad. Thus my shoe in to get to purchase some left over parts and signs. Wish I had purchased his "Lark Power Steering " neon sign, was in three different colors. He also had a neon Studebaker sign that spanned the entire front of the showroom, it was huge! Too big for me to purchase, hadn't any place to keep it!:ohmy:
