  • In the San Diego, CA County, in the covenant of Rancho Santa Fe, which is an EXTREMELY wealthy part of town with a downtown boutique area of TWO blocks, was Bob Francisco Studebaker. My car was purchased there and the owner's son Bob Francisco Jr.is still around. I tracked him down and had a nice conversation with. I have only met one person in San Diego that remembers that dealership and that person grew up in Rancho Santa Fe. I heard that the only reason there was a Studebaker dealership in such a small area was that a VP of Studebaker had a vacation home in Rancho Santa Fe and wanted a dealership there.

                  • Remember it well

                    I am 52 years old and one of my earliest memories is of my Dad taking his/my "54 car to that dealership for servicing. Everytime I pass by now-a-days I think of the school across the street and trees out front. Funny how some memories stay with us.QUOTE=Dick Steinkamp;48755]Ben A. Begier in San Leandro, CA



                    Now a Buick dealer in the same location on E. 14th.
