          • Found another one in a 1927 Peoria, Illinois City Dir. Ingram Motor Co. Studebaker Sales & Service. 613-615 Main St. Peoria, Il. Part of the building is still there (615 Main). The other end of the building (613 Main) is gone. It's now a parking lot.

            • Thanks, Ingram was the distributor for Jeffery Cars (?) before 1927 and was a Nash dealer in 1923 also.

                • That is really cool. Do you have any pictures of it? Also, when was the dealership open?

                        A few years ago some of us had talked about the possibility of starting an annual "South Bend Swap Meet" in South Bend, WA. I went there and looked around, but didn't find a prospective site.

                          Right, John; I simply haven't put forth the effort. It was a half-block away from the town square car show Friday evening, June 1, so I swung by to snap the photo on the way home.

                          Two other life-long local Stude guys with me weren't certain of the dealership's name "back in the time." Neither was sure about what it was, so there was more confusion / questioning than disagreement.

                          I'll check it out next time I have occassion to be in the county Historical Society archives, although they were closed when that picture was taken about 8:15 PM. BP

                          • Packard Dealership

                            Going thru my dads papers I found his Master Serviceman's Certificate Dated 1950 it certifys that Jack Forney was a Master Packard Mechanic at Haupert Motor Co. Packard Sales & Service in Tillamook Oregon. It has signatures of the owner and service managers. This is pretty darn cool for me its going into a frame on the wall.

                            • While diggin' thru a 1929 Bell Telephone and Telegraph System phonebook for Idaho and Utah. Listed are:
                              Studebaker Motor Cars
                              Evanston Motor Co. Evanston WYO.
                              Packard Motors Inc. SLC UT
                              There might be more but not listed as Studebaker dealership in some kind of ad because there aren't ads like today. This phone book is about a 1/2 inch thick and listed all of Idaho Utah and some of Wyoming, persons and businesses, it even lists Airports and Landing Fields.
                              This is a neat find.
