    Thanks for posting. Sad to see how things have changed, the Caddy doesnt seem that old to be in that condition.Would be nice to have someone take interest in the building and preserve it !

          Anyone notice the hardtop (in the other sense) roof leaning on the left wall inside at 2:28?

            This is Mathis Studebaker in Pleasantville NJ on Rt322 just outside of Atlantic City. I visited this dealership a few times when still a Studebaker dealership. I knew Mr.Mathis, purchased several Studebaker parts from him along with a very nice neon "Studebaker Cars" sign from him. I recently donated it to the Studebaker National Museum, presented it to Andy Beckmann at the Gettysburg meet. The interior was as beautiful as the exterior, had a huge Studebaker mural on one wall and a fabulous tile floor with the Studebaker wheel motif carried through to the front showroom which had a huge neon Studebaker sign which went wall to wall. Shame it's fallen on such hard times.

              That's still a beautiful building. It deserves to be put back into shape and into use.

                    That really needs to be saved. I wonder what kind of condition the roof is in? If it's still water tight, that could make a nice shop or small museum for Studebaker's on the East coast.

                      This beautiful building should be on the National Register. Its architecture is unique and absolutely gorgeous. As Chris said it would make somebody a great shop facility. It really should be saved.

                            It is on the north side of Rt. 322, not far from Atlantic City.
