HELP! I've gotten to the point where I can't call my '55 Commander Coupe 'Rustobaker' anymore. There's no rust left.
I'm asking for the Forum to help me come up with a suitable name for him.
It has to be a masculine name 'cause he's just too tough to be a girlie Stude.

We need more clues Jerry - colour, previous owners name, place or origin. Naming a car is an involved process ;-) A pic would be good.

Would "RustLess" work?
Or "NoRustObaker"?

Although he's just a Deluxe, he's much too regal for such an informal name. Maybe William Robert, but never Billy Bob. ;-)

then he would be 'Peanutbutter'.

Although, being that it is peanut butter color, you may want to name it after a famous Georgian peanut farmer by the name of 'Jimmy Carter'. More masculine of a name may be 'James Carter'. :)

How about calling it The Shart ?

I would think that naming a car (or anything else) should be left up to the owner. In time some characteristic will arise that will make a name feel right. If you force the issue you may never be really comfortable with what you call it. Old Spot was just "the 52" until a friend made a comment one day that tagged it with the name.

Well, in that case, If you are familiar with Rodney Carrington's music than just call him "Fred"

How about BRUNO …as in BRUNO-BAKER (tough Brown Studebaker)

[From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia]
BRUNO (names)
Bruno is a masculine given name. It is derived from the Germanic word brun meaning "brown."

Jerry, how could you go wrong with those two good German names …Bruno & Studebaker???:D

Jerry Forrester

All good names so far. He's not going to stay the color he is now (that's primer). His final colors will be Alpena blue bottom and a white top.

Jerry,

With the amount of work you had to perform to bring this one back, I think you should name the car "Jerry-Can".

Not only does it reflect the irrepressible attitude of the owner, the name can also be defined "A jerrycan is a robust fuel container made from pressed steel".

I say leave it that color and name it Butterscotch. Then when someone asks why, you can say "Because folks that know me say my breath always smells like either butt or scotch".

Of course, you would have to either continue or start drinking Scotch...

Yes I know the Alpena blue bottom is supposed to have a Windsor blue top, but this is my car, not the Studebaker Corporation's.
I'll paint it color I want. (G)

From all the names suggested so far. I like "Patches" As we have seen some of the good patchwork that went into the transformation from a Rustobaker to a nonrustobaker!

I was just curious as to what shade of blue 'Alpena' was... I found the color chart and thought I'd share it with the forum.
I never even looked at what shade was where..

Those colors will look good together Jerry- nice choice!!! :D


Say-- is it just me or is that the first time anyone else has seen 'Chasta White' spelt that way?

Being from California, and knowing 'Shasta' is correct- this just looks weird to me... :confused:

I would say Rustobaker has gone from Rustobaker to Trusty Or Trustobaker since he will soon be a fine example of great looking automotive dependability.

11-01-2010, 03:19 PM
Yes it's YOUR car, but an interesting thing is, I don't see ANY Two-Tones with Chasta>Shasta White! I am quite sure there WERE though! Maybe they are on Page Two.
