  • studebaker yard in Royersford, Pennsylvania

    A co-worker spent some time in Royersford, Pennsylvania several years ago. he recalled a large "outdoor collection" of Studebakers.
    So far my searching had not located anything about if this yard still exists, let alone whether parts or cars are availabe.

    Dan: That was probably Herm's Auto Sales, 601 2nd Avenue, Royersford, PA. Herm died, more than several years ago, and I believe they had an auction there and got rid of everything. I remember in his garage area, he had taken the large, rectangular Studebaker flouresent signs, removed one face of the sign and hung the other part in his garage for lights. I did not attend the auction so I don't know what happened to the lights, parts, cars, or building. Haven't been back down there in years.

      Herm's Flying "A" Service, Herman Slaybaugh, Sr.

      No doubt I still have some receipts for parts I bought from Herm.

      His son, Herm, Jr, was a local policeman in State College, Pa many years ago. When Pennsylvania changed its inspection requirement for antiques, I scraped the sticker off my windshield and Herm was the first one to pull me over for no sticker. Now, thirty years later, I wish I had left that sticker where it was.

      I think Junior is now the local code enforcement officer.

        Herm Slaybaugh's yard was disassembled about 2-3 years ago and all was sold at auction. many local Studebaker people from the DelVal Chapt bought much of it as he was a long time member and would give you the shirt off his back if you'd except it.Mrs. Slaybaugh was the one who was involved in the sale.
