The new thread 'Studebaker in Your Genes' is kind of neat, as it points us toward our first experience with Studebakers...

Spinning that idea forward, what about a look into the future?

Who do you think might pull out a pic years from now, and fondly remember their first Stude experience?

Do you have a future Stude lover experience to talk about?
(if you can talk about it, that is[}:)]...)

This motorcycle rider had a thing for yellow Studebakers.
Will she write about this in her memoirs?
Time will tell;)

I am in a line of 4 generations of Studebaker owners. My Dad owned a 59 wagon,and a 62 Lark, My brother and I have had many. All my children own Studebakers except one. Her husband and her son each own one. Two of my grandkids own them, and I am working on the third one. I offered Sabrina my 65 Daytona, She said "It might be cool." but it needs a lot of work. NT

I might need to get my Daytona out of her way then... Mine's been sitting in that bay for 3 years. I thought that since it was IN a shop, work would get done on it....... [:o)][:o)]

I don't think there was ever a Studebaker in my family. Dad and Grandapa were Pontiac men. I don't think I even knew Studebakers existed until sometime in the 1980's.
I'm raising 4 kids in Michigan that won't be so sheltered. I've been working on this ole 52 since before two of them were born. They help out OK, but so far it's just a box to play in...

That's cool...
I flew many a mission, went deep in the ocean, won a ton of imaginary races, and defeated T.H.R.U.S.H. every time I encountered them in my radar/sonar/bombsight equipped Hawk (tach delete);)

This is my son working on my engine.

And his girlfriend by my Stude.

And this is my Sister.

My Sister moved back into Mother's house. You can see the same houses across the street. There was a guy across the street who had a 52 Commander Starlight, you can hardly see it.

We have had Studebakers for the past year and a half, and enjoyed John's dad's Stude trucks before that. Being just three and four years old, our kids will most likely never remember NOT being around Studebakers. It's not unusual for our son and daughter to ask if we can take "Daddy's truck" or "George" (Mommy's President) when we leave to go somewhere. They probably "get" our obsession with Studebakers more than most other members of our family! :)

My kids won't remember life without our 1950 Champion.

My Dad and I started restoration of our 9G W3 on the eve of my 35th birthday and "Doc" has been with us ever since. My 15 month-old son loves to climb around the backseat area and my daughter enjoys cruising the neighborhood and looking for other Studebakers. I treasure my quick solo drives with the windows down on cool summer nights.
