    • For now this one doesn't have a name that I can recall, but it was a Studebaker dealership. It was one of many scattered in this area since the time of the horse and buggy. It is also unknown to me when they changed hands(I know this had a few soon after), but when they opened up the second floor to renovate for another business it was full of '55 parts, which came back up to this area. As of now this is a tavern for the locals.

                    • Tried to do a search of the thread and then went to Studebaker History page... Didn't see anything on KYLE MOTOR COMPANY, COLUMBUS, GA.. Sandy Kyle was the owner or the owners son..not sure which.My dad bought a few Studebakers from them including the last one he bought... a 1966 Lark Daytona 2 door... 283 w/ overdrive and a vinyl top, transitor ignition....etc...

                      • A couple more.In Cortland,OH there was Frank Wall who sold Buicks and Studebaker[59-60 only]then retired.His daughter still owns the building which is now Cortland Tractor.In Warren,OH I think it was Jerry's Studebaker-later Datsun,don't know about now.In WV-Parsons Motor Sales,Liverpool sold Studes from 57-66 and are still in business.A few years ago I met a Mr Lemon who had a dealership in Spencer,WV.He loved the R-series cars.I hope one shows up as a barn find someday.
