While traveling from Dothan Alabama south on 231 about 12 to 14 miles spotted a 56 2 dr wagon.It is parked parallel to the north bound lane about 40 feet from the highway. Color is dark blue and light+rust color. If you are traveling south then look across the highway. It is parked amongst 10 or so cars. No other studes that I could see. I believe the car to be for sale because of markings on the windows not clearly defined. No less than a complete parts car from the looks or perhaps better. Any body seen this piece. Would like to chat with stude folks in the area as I am new here. Dothan Alabama that is. I have been into Studes 30+ years. Jim Kranak jimmijim

Hey, Jim

When did you move to Dothan? Hope you are coming back strong from your accident. Will you be able to join us in South Bend?

Hi all friends. I have been in Alabama for about 2 months now. I sure like the weather here. It would be nice to meet some Stude people (if any) from around these parts. When I was hospitalized this past fall and winter little did I know that I would recieve the amount of get well cards, telephone calls, and well wishes. Each card, telephone call or visit brought tears to my eyes. STUDE folks are among the best folks out there. Sure glad I don't have a brand x.
Thank to John Wherry,
Pat Musta, Denzel and Junita Linn for your vists. I have saved all corespondence from all well wishers and will respond personally. Hi Dusty Bob, Jim Bradley, Chester and the rest of the Alleghany chapter. Thanks to the Kinzu's too. jimmijim Jim Kranak Dothan Alabama

I have also seen this car. In fact, it was the basis of a thread that I started a couple of months regarding a '55 nose on a '56. I am still in the process of moving from SE Florida to McCalla, AL. I will be going back up during the middle of June. I will check it out then.

Jim,

Great to see you back on the Forum! I hope that your recovery is continuing well. We miss your smilin' face at the Allegheny Region gatherings, but our loss is Alabama's gain.

For those of you who haven't yet met Jim or his beautiful GT Hawk, here they are:

Jim, if this pic looks a bit familiar, I used some Visine to "get the red out".

To get back on topic, it does seem that station wagons, particularly 2-dr. wagons, are becoming a hot item. I have seen increasing numbers of Brand X wagons showing up at shows and cruise-ins. It looks like interest in Stude wagons is growing, too.

Have we run out of convertibles and hardtops, or have our tastes "matured"?

If anyone is interested I know where a "54 Conestoga is sitting in Boise, Idaho. Not the one shown below, but like it. Ran when parked, would need restoration.

I believe I was quoted $600.00 a few years back. Does have a good size gash along the passenger side. It has been sitting in a salvage yard for some time. I know the man well and I know that he has'nt sold any parts off it. He has wanted to sell it as a complete vehicle. I know that he has a lot of requests for parts off it though.

That's a fair observation...
After so long, any club will seek out the 'different', even from within it's own universe...
I, for one, and holding out for the Zip Van craze to hit[:p]

I think the thing with wagons is they really don't them anymore. At least not in the form that they did in the '50's & '60's. Having owned two wagons when I was young, I'll say that I still like them. They are not seen everyday, and you can bring the whole family on cruise night! :D
