As a matter of fact, Leonard - I got an E-mail from that young lady today. It's the young gal's car - that's her dad/support crew in the driver's seat shot.
I've met her and talked some about her car. She was at the Sacto meet in '03. She's told me the car's getting some engine work this winter so it'll be ready for the show circuit come spring.
We've been discussing getting together with our wagons come next summer. Gotta be fun to have a blue & white and a pink & white together in the same frame! I'm hoping Art will be receptive for a cover shot of the two!;)

I had the extreme pleasure of visiting with Frank Drumheller a couple of times in Omaha (not enough time, really:(). Frank was offereing some of his collection of Stude literature and artwork and I asked, kinda matter-of-factly if there was any other piece of lit about the 58 Provincial save for the 81/2"X11" loose leaf flyer that I've had for some years. To my surprize, there WERE 22X15 artists renderings done on most of the '58 lineup. These were meant for dealership walls, no doubt.
Anyway, Frank allowed as how he had one at home that he'd be willing to part with and after the meet we came to terms over that piece and I ended up with it in my mailbox.:D
Cheap-o that I be, I found a frame and mat at a garage sale today and did up the wagon picture as soon as I got home![:p]
A bit of irony is that the car's depicted in the color scheme I'm doing ours in. White over light blue - just like the 58 Commander hordtop I once owned.
The painting's interesting in that the artist took a few small liberties with it. He's painted the chrome "cuff" just above the back bumper as if it were a taillight. I guess I can give him that it MIGHT reflect the true taillight lens, but it seems doubtful to me. Also, on the fin, where it's supposed to carry the script that says "Provincial", it says "Studebaker".
Still, I LOVE IT! It's gonna take some of what precious little wallspace there is left in this office. I know it'll be inspirational as far as getting myself cracking on the rendition that's out in the garage![:I] Thanks Frank!;)

Yes, that would be a great and unusual shot, for sure. I collect old snapshots of Studebakers (I have about 1,000 of them) and this one of two 58 sedans together is got to be another rare shot!

WOW Leonard, this brings back childhood memories of Michigan. I was born in Mich. and lived there till I was 10, and I remember they had Sealtest Dairy products there. Have not seen or heard of them since. Were they sold at "Pigly Wigly Grocery Stores"? We shopped there.

Hi
RE: The '58 dealer broadside of the Provincial, there was a set of those on Ebay a while back. I think the art work is nicely done, some artistic liberties with the details that add to their interest. The one of the sedan shows it up on a road high above city lights with searchlights sweeping the sky.
Leonard:
Please consider submitting some of those clear snapshots to TW for them to run on the inside covers, we'd all like to see them.

I have about 1,000 old photos of Studebakers (and other makes) and I have sent a package of prints to TW. The problem with old snapshots is that the camera technology of the day was very poor and most of them are not of the quality to submit to TW. I have some negatives that I made into prints that were good enough. One of the ones that I sent is below. The elderly lady is Mrs. Thorpe, the owner of Thorpe Studebaker in Marysville, OH. I have started a thread of my family's Studebaker photos, so I might start a thread of just old Studebaker snapshots.

The pink car is Pinky's. While I am into original restorations, I must admit her and her friend did a great job on their car. I have talked to her a few times via email and she loves her Studebaker and she has a ton of fun with it. Great heart and plenty of energy makes for a great individual to be around.

Hi Leonard
Thanks for submitting the good photos you have to TW. I will check out your website to see the other makes and Studebaker ones when posted.

On the poor photo technology then: to correct some of it, they have image enhancement software programs now that can improve an old snapshot to a high degree, usually available at professional photographic service businesses. Maybe some you have would be worth having that done to to see if they are printable.

I have wondered if perhaps they could divide those TW inside cover spaces into four, so they could run old snapshots of lesser quality.

Yes, that '58 sedan dealer broadside I mentioned is visible on the wall. Wonder if Mrs. Thorpes' '58 Packard is silently waiting in it's garage to be discovered?

I use Photoshop to work with my photos. On the photo with the two 58 Studes, I tried to make the contrast better and zoom in on the Studebakers. Here is what the photo looked like before I worked with it.

The Studebaker Room is still in Sam Miller's house which is about 50 miles west of where I live. Sam left me all his Studebaker collection and left his house and the rest of his collection to another friend who is now living in the house. The whole house is a museum and we have had club meets there. Sam loved Studebakers, but was also interested in all other makes. My friend, Chuck who is living there now is also a collector and is adding to the collection. There are models from all over the world. For example there is probably the largest Tatra (Czechoslovakia) model collection in the US. Every room of the 3000 sq.ft. house is filled with model cars, political, movie and food memorabilia. Below are some photos of the main model room. If you are ever in Central Virginia, I will be glad to give you a tour

quote: Enjoyed touring your site, Leonard! The "Studebaker rooms" - are they part of your house, or are they in a seperate building?

Miscreant adrift in
the BerStuda Triangle!!

The Studebaker Room is still in Sam Miller's house which is about 50 miles west of where I live. Sam left me all his Studebaker collection and left his house and the rest of his collection to another friend who is now living in the house. The whole house is a museum and we have had club meets there. Sam loved Studebakers, but was also interested in all other makes. My friend, Chuck who is living there now is also a collector and is adding to the collection. There are models from all over the world. For example there is probably the largest Tatra (Czechoslovakia) model collection in the US. Every room of the 3000 sq.ft. house is filled with model cars, political, movie and food memorabilia. Below are some photos of the main model room. If you are ever in Central Virginia, I will be glad to give you a tour
