    When I checked online for Buick dealers in Indiana, I found this website in Richmond Indiana... named Studebaker Buick GMC It's Nice to think that a Studebaker dealer is still in business and I guess it is... Roly HamiltonSDC

    Locally owned and operated in Richmond, Indiana since 1979. I wouldn't mind having a dealer namplate, tag or license plate frame from this dealership.

    Take a look at the 'Studebaker' sign on the right side of the showroom building.

    In the 60's some of my family members were treated by a Dr. Studebaker in LaGrange, IN. I think he may have been a missionary doctor before starting his practice in LaGrange.

    I've been led to believe the three Stutenbeckers who immigrated in 1736 were the only ones to have the spelling recorded as Studebaker. Leading me to believe there are no Studebakers in the U.S. who are not descended from those original three.
    Note there would have been many family branches by the time the Studebaker brothers started cranking out wagons a hundred-sixteen years later.

    There was back in December when I posted a photo of their Merry Christmas billboard along U.S. 40, Gary. But it wasn't in front of the dealership, so this sign wasn't visible.

    Not to say it's never been posted here, though! BP

    They must be in the import business. I mean, they're still building them up in Canada <G>

    It is interesting to see a dealership owned by a "Studebaker". You'd have to think there's some connection there.

    As Bob Palma said, the name of the dealership is Studebaker (owners name) Buick & GMC truck

    When I looked at the sign, the only thing that popped into my mind was that the name of the dealership's owner had to be Studebaker. It just looks kinda strange seeing the name on a GMC sign. Good stuff.

    Yes, Bruce; that is a legitimate sign; not photoshopped or anything.

    However, I did take it several years ago, not last Sunday.

    That dealership has been there as long as I can remember; the family that owns it is named Studebaker. BP
