Well, I am now 'officially' a genuine, card-carrying, proud owner of a Studebaker.

I just (barely) got in from driving my newly acquired 4sp '62 GT Hawk from Ontario to Iowa, before all the ice and snow really began to come down. Fifteen minutes, to be exact. Now its buried beneath a foot of snow. Howzat for "timing", I ask ya?

The Hawk looks good, runs good, and got a lot of comments and compliments along the way by folks who appreciate what a fine automobile the Studebaker Hawk is.

Anyway, just wanted to check in and say hello. I gotta a lot to learn about this car. My very first car was a '49 Studie.....now 50 yrs later, it looks as if my very last car will be a Studie as well.

Yep! I saw that right after clicking on the 'send' button. Didn't see anyway to edit the post, so I guess I will be forever burdened with the stigma of not knowing how to spell Studebaker, heh, heh, heh.


Edit: Hey...I just found the 'edit' button. My spelling error has now been corrected. Hopefully, the stigma can be lifted.

Once the snow stops here and I can get it spiffied up some, pics will be forthcoming. You probably are already familiar with it though as I got it from club member Bill Foy over in Ontario way.

Thanks for the greeting.

While I'm thinking of it, anyone know what the capacity of the fuel tank is on this vehicle?

Hmmm, as a matter of fact, there was quite a bit of salt on the Ontario roadways. You're not trying to tell me that my new pride and joy is going to disintegrate because of that, are you?:)

FWIW, I encounted some good old ordinary rain in Eastern Iowa...where hopefully, that washed most of the nasty stuff off. I need to get out to the garage and get busy detailing it some more....but all this snow we got overnight, kinda has me pretty discouraged and not full of as much enthusiasm as I'd like to have.

Thanks for the fuel capacity info. Is there a website where I can refer to that sort of info? I found the spec site, but it doesn't make any mention of capacities.

You could do a lot worse than a 4 sp 62 GT Hawk for a last car! Welcome to the board. I grew up in Dubuque and have a baby 50 Starlight that I moved away from those Iowa winters. Have fun turning heads.

The Hawk looks good, runs good, and got a lot of comments and compliments along the way by folks who appreciate what a fine automobile the Studebaker Hawk is.

I used to take my classic old Mopars to the annual show at Dubuque before, in a moment of weakness, I sold them. Also, my daughter attended college there at Loras for 4 years. Nice town.

As far as your having moved away from the Iowa winters.....I moved here to escape the California earthquakes. I may not be that crazy about the ccccold and snow, but at least here the ground holds still!:D

Loras is a great school! My first degree is from its sister college, Clarke. I had to take Physics at Loras though.

New Madrid aside, I'm sure the difference in the cost of living between California and Iowa could greatly contribute to a Studebaker acquisition fund. Very pretty car, Karl.
