      I remember back in the day seeing one of these signs still lit up at Knoblock Dodge in South River, N.J.a few years after Studebaker had threw in the towel. It's still deep in my mind, something one will never forget.

            This is where I tend to disagree with many collectors. I hope it goes for $25. That way I can afford one... or two! I'm not collecting any of this stuff because I hope it is worth money. I'm collecting it because I like it. If it's worth so little that I can buy lots of it, all the better! How do you think it would go for me if suddenly my rusty M5 was worth $100,000.00? The pressure would be on to sell it and spend that money somewhere else. Like on carpet and furniture.

              For thousands! No takers but their still asking
              That crazy price.

                  Was the circle-S already being used in 1960? - I guess I was thinking it was later - like '63 or '64.

                      That logo was not introduced until the start of the '64 model year.

                          Wow! I hope it brings a lot too. Maybe my heirs can pull in some bucks when I'm gone. The one I have is that nice too.

                            I was reading this item and was thinking it would bring $300, I then went and looked to see where it was now and see it is over that. Good luck, hope it goes to $500 for you.

                            PS The fact that is was once owned by Richard Quinn should add some value to it don't you think???
