    Thanks for posting Bob! Great photos!
    Been inside the Mathis Studebaker dealer several times,
    Young Mr. Mathis (WW2 Vet.) showed me around. Had a huge beautiful 1920's Studebaker mural on back wall and Studebaker themed inlaid tile floor. Antique folks later had built a loft type second floor within the showroom. Covered up a lot of the interior detail. Shame it's falling apart from neglect.

      'Way cool, Bob; thanks for the link.

      Check out the topography of the Studebaker dealership in Hazelton PA on Page 2; I'll bet they "demo'd" and sold a lot of Hill Holders out of that place!

      That's a great site; I'll have to check it out further to see how to contribute photos to it. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        Not much different than the hill on Preston Avenue in front of Coggins Motors.

          My Sky Hawk came from Eidam Bros. Studebaker in 1956. I always wondered what it looked like. Thanks heaps!

              Bob, Nice job. I think it's fantastic that so many former Studebaker buildings have been preserved and have other uses now. Makes me feel great!

                Thanks Robert for Posting these, just Fantastic how Ornate, well Built and EXPENSIVE these Studebaker Buildings were, it is a tribute to their integrity that they are still standing as well as the History minded people that had the sense to save them.

                I always wished I had some Pictures of the Newer Non-Stude. Wheel Type building that housed the Paul G. Hoffman Jr. Stude. Dealership in Inglewood, CA.
