This has been discussed several times at various intervals on the Forum. Until I see something to prove that they have a product to sell, I think this is nothing more than a website.

I think this is one of the biggest scams ever perpetuated against Studebaker lovers. The Mobotic? WTF is that supposed to be? Whatever they build (if that ever happens) will have nothing to do with the Studebaker's we know and love.

This cracks me up!

"Studebaker Motor Company, Inc does recognize The Studebaker National Museum, Studebaker Drivers Club and many other Studebaker Driving clubs, along with all the Parts Companies who have worked hard on keeping all the old Studebaker's on the road."

How special of them to recognize REAL Studebaker doin's. I know I feel honored with their pat on the head.[}:)]

The company president/webmaster must've finally mastered spell-check. His grammar's a bit improved - at least on the website. Oops! I just saw Studebakers, plural, with an apostrophe[xx(]

Mark, a Mobotic is probably one of those little propellers you mount someplace in the fuel-air mixture stream to promote better mileage![8]

I looked at the site in question and don't know much more now than before. I think the only product they've succeeded in producing is their logo. I checked out the motorcycle stuff, 120 cubic inch engine, 6 speed, etc....that sounds an awful lot like stuff anyone can buy now from certain after market companies. However, the 1500 mile range on that myotonic engine sounds good. No wait, myotonic is a fainting goat.........

Well, at face value it all seems so absurd - yet the fact is that there is a lot of innovative thought going on that may profoundly change everthing automotive as we know it. Here is my guess of the likely powerplant for the new Studebaker: http://www.angellabsllc.com/

I've actually seen the prototype engine from the above link, and I found it to be one of the most fascinating toroidal engines that I have ever seen. A coffe can sized version will theoretically provide 220 hp.

The website is one thing. The proof will be in the production of vehicles. I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt. Doesn't cost me anything.

Websites can be deceiving. Even poor ones like the one in discussion.:(

I've been trying to get the truth about a charity that's supposed to support California Police and Sheriffs. If you believe the hoo-ha on their website, you'd think "WOW! These folks do great stuff for our law enforcement folks!"
Well, with lots of web searching, I found out this charity's run by a private concern outta Maryland.[:0] And of the $4,336,000.00 they gleaned from soliciting donations outta California one recent year, a whole 10% was donated to police and sheriff departments across the state. The other 90% went to operating expenses. And they have ONE dinky office in the state!
Like I said tho - they've got a very convincing web presence.[}:)]

Gee, I wonder if they'd give me a discount for a pre-order of a new "Studebaker" when they're built![:o)]

These people who call requesting donations for a police fund are full of it. A police officer told me never to respond to any of these requests. Your police forces are well taken care of and most of the money which is donated to these phone hustlers never gets to the police.
I have a policy never to agree to send money to anyone who solicits donations over the phone, and I tell them that. If they wish to send my something in the mail, they can.
I always check on charities by logging onto the BBB website. They rate all charities by indicating what percentage of the money actually goes to the folks who need it.
I know that this isn't about Studebakers, but I needed to respond.
Thanks for letting me vent.

Bob here's the info on Mobotic, can't see anyone financing them when the majors like Ford are on the skids.

Studebaker Mobotic Mobotic was born from the research that Studebaker Motor Company has done to make vehicles better, green and eco friendly. Studebaker Mobotic is a new advanced power plant and chassis system.

This has been around for several years. It would be more convincing if the links on their web-site worked.
We disscused this on the ng and thought it was the brain storm of some 14 year old computer geek.
I think that may be the case, but at least hes learned how to spell a bit better.
He once proclaimed they where going to have a dealer right here in Nova Scotia,I haven't heard of any ground breaking for it as yet.
Some outfit recently announced they were building a factory to make board games, it woould soon employ 1500 workers. It sounded funny,who plays board games thse days?
It was announced last week it was all a scam,though they didn't get their hands on any government money,that we know of.
