Barney's Motor Service, CA, 1957, Studebaker-Packard, Escondido

Finally - I get to see one of Barney's dealership homes, Barney's Studebaker service in Escondido, California. This color photo from 1957 was posted by Alden Jewel over on Flickr, and it's the first pic I've ever seen of the location.

Barney wasn't sold here (he was originally delivered to Bob Waters Studebaker in San Francisco, now the site of a Toyota dealer), but the fact that he wears those plate frames means he was probably either serviced there or, more likely, traded in by whomever brought him down South.

It's great to finally have a view of this dealer!
