I was on a mountain-bike trail in my area today with a friend,we wandered off the main trail and came across,literally dozens of Studebakers and Packards of all years and models.Along with a several `50`s Caddy converts and a few others,but mainly Studebakers.I didn`t have a camera with me,but wish I did,also found a ton of old machine equipment in the same area.Anyways,I have no idea who owns them,but it looks like they`ve been there for a very long time,and unless you stumbled across them you`d have no idea that they were there.This was in the Lockport,IL area.

Wow! We're always glad to hear about finding a forgotten stash of Studebakers! Thanks FoMoCoPower!

Take the next step and find out who holds their fate in hand. Maybe some of the cars (or certainly parts thereof) could be made useful again. Otherwise, what'll happen is there comes a day when the scrap man comes calling. Then only the scrap man wins.:(

Miscreant at large.

Probably some of Bob Kapteyn's stash from Joliet Studebaker....
