Re: “Klyce Motors — Memphis' Studebaker Dealership

As a continuation of the Studebaker dealership story I remember when Jack Chamblin had the dealership from the '50s until Studebaker's demise in the mid-60s. It was on the SE corner of Central at Cooper which is now antique shops. The Chamblins were our next-door neighbors and I vividly remember him bringing home Avantis — a car truly ahead of the time. As children he would let us ride in it from the carport behind the house to the end of the drive. Quite a thrill for 10- to 12-year-old boys!

Re: “Unanswered Questions

I believe the quarry mentioned in the vicinity of Park and Mt. Moriah was actually just southwest of Mt. Moriah and I-240 where Nonconnah runs adjacent to Chuck Hutton's northernmost parking lot. I remember an old abandoned quarry in the early 60s that was locally known as Mud Lake. Many kids swam in it and jumped off a cliff which was probably not more than 20' high. At that age it seemed a lot taller than I picture it now. The bravest (or stupidist) kids would ride a bike off the cliff into the lake. I believe it was filled in during the construction of I-240 and the development of the Mt. Moriah corridor.
