So these are to be Sold, Scrapped, kept forever or what?

That looks like a pretty solid '58 Provincial Wagon.

There must be some pretty nice ones in the Pole Building "if these are the Yard Cars." :ohmy:

Studebakers of Montana # 4
74438744397444074441744427444374444The fellow who appeared to be running the quarry was congenial to allow me to trespass in order to take these pics. (equipment roaming around). I didn't get any other info. I think it was somewhat between the towns of Talc and Trout Creek if I recall correctly.
Does anyone here have any info regarding that very early Studebaker dual rear wheel truck? I am not up on them and have never seen one before. Somebody should rescue it!
Also sighted on HWY # 83 north of Swan Lake is a semi stripped CK body, no hood or motor, for sale at the roadside. Re: the Crosley, the apparent size is my poor photography as I had difficulty getting near some of the cars. It is quite small.

It would be nice to know what's going on with the cars and trucks.
Sure looks like a lot of good restorable ones that should get the care they deserve.

Even if I could find this place, I have the sneaky suspicion that they might be owned by the proverbial old man that says he'll "get around to restorin' them one of these days." Hopefully, I'm wrong. I would like to buy a project from this place next year if possible.

Wonderful pictures!:!: Apparently, a "Kindred Spirit" of Chuck Naugle.:) Regardless of the future of these relics, someone has had an interesting life accumulating this stuff. For a creative writer, with an excellent imagination, this collection could be the basis for a series of very entertaining stories that could take each vehicle from its beginnings, to how it ended up here. First by books with pictures, and then TV, or movie screenplays. There have been many successful fictionalized adventure series based on much more flimsy foundations than what is possible here.

The stories could all end with the vehicles having earned their peaceful rest in this Montana haven, or better yet, being rescued by an appreciative youthful restorer. :)

This sounds like a job for me! I can write and I have enough youthful energy to restore a car!

I know a few people who would love to have those huge factory bumper guards (and maybe the spotlight) on the blue 2R-10/11 pickup. I THINK that the fender-mounted directional signals are also original Stude accessory items.

Thanks for posting the pictures. I enjoyed them a lot.

I had the same thought as skyway when I saw the Crosley picture. The vehicle looks big at first glance. Then I recognized what it was and thought: "That can't be very big. It's a Crosley!"

Maybe a quick confirmation of location on Hwy 200 would help. I can't locate using Google Earth. Thanks, Bill.

Perhaps it is an outdoor automobile museum? That is what I call such a collection, they are fun to walk through.

Funny you should mention that...on Sunday I attempted to open the hood of a 1960 Champ that is parked on my lawn....too many wasps came out of the grill for me to get the hood open!

Any update on location? Hwy 200 spans most of the state!

Sorry this confirmation took so long but I did write " I think it was somewhat between the towns of Talc and Trout Creek if I recall correctly."
Hope this helps you.
