Rather than post them all, here's a link to my album on Photobucket. For some reason PB shows the photos in reverse order, so when you see a sign from a vehicle it appears before the vehicle.

I also have videos, but am having a &*%$#@ of a time trying to get them to upload. Will post them if/when I get that done[}:)]

Thanks Bams, it looks like a few more cars showed up after I left on Friday. Anyway tell me about photobucket I was trying to load pictures of bumpers from a 61,62,63 for the guy asking about the champ/camino thing. Photobucket kept insisting the one picture should be turned on end, needless to say I gave up. Good luck. I'll have to post the picture of the two champ fron panels and my parents in our PT Cruiser, lemme tell you about a comfortable ride back to Pittsburgh.

That blue 64 Cruiser was sold my me to a forum member a few years back. I recall the warning fan plate came off into the fan after they bought it.

Jon, I've never had a problem with PB. I just load pictures ito my computer, open PB, and hit "BROWSE". That opens my pictures; I double-click the picture, it loads into the window, and I hit "UPLOAD". That's all I've ever had to do- they always load, and always the right size.

Maybe somebody else has your answer.

Yes, $11K.

The story going around was, the owner has had it less than a year; found he just plain did not like driving it.

The quality of the restoration was top-notch throughout- every detail except that steering wheel![}:)] I wanted to grab the owner up under the arm and haul him in to the Schrock brothers' display:(

Sigh....... I could forgive the steering wheel - until I could have Shrocks do it. Nice car for the money!

In my opion the best buy at the swap was the '56 power hawk for $8500 , I'm sure that one sold;)

The black '50 Commander, owned by Dr. David Barnes of Lynchburg, VA, is one fine Studebaker. I think I heard more positive comments about this car of any in the Car Corral. It is a Regal 2 door sedan, one of only 2363 built in 1950. Also, one built with the new automatic transmissions. The Regal 2 door sedan had the lowest production of all models in the Commander line. Compare the Commander production with 21,976 Champion Regal 2 door sedans. One nice car and reasonably priced, I feel.[:p]

I do not know the history of this car or why Dr. Barnes is selling it, but Dr. Barnes is one of the older and one of the earliest SDC members. He was Mr. Studebaker in Virginia when most of us had never heard of SDC back in the 60's. He's a legend in our parts.:)

If he only owned it for a year as Bams50's post suggests, it make me wonder what he didn't like about driving it, Frank? It sure was a beautiful car. I've had a few cars that looked beautiful, yet made me frustrated most of the time.
Now that I think about it, that translates into more than just cars for me. ;)

I'd guess it was even more underpowered than he thought it would be... maybe somebody knows whether that was it?

Thanks for the photos Bams- I couldn't get out to look. But asked me if I wanted to make a comment every time I clicked on another picture- very annoying.
I love the '50 Commander. It's only the second one I have ever seen (two-door with a/t)
