Since I have sold my 64 Daytona convertible, I now just have my 52 Commander Regal 2dr. sedan. I drove it on the old Studebaker Test Track at South Bend, but when I got back home the 64 Jet Thrust engine I had in it spun a bearing. I have now replaced the engine with a 1960 Studebaker 259 V8. If you want to hear it run, here is the link:

My first Studebaker. Paid $75.00 for it when I was 16 years old.

And my Mother's 58 Silver Hawk. I learned to drive on this car.

I bought this 4 speed 62 GT Hawk in 1965.
