I got a e-mail about a hawk that was abandoned in Baltimore has anyone heard anything about it? What junk yard has it or if it went to the crusher?

It was on the street, don't know if anyone got it, but it's probably too late by now.

What ever happened to that yellow '64 that was over by the Naval Academy stadium? I could easily see someone throwing the plates in the bushes and walking away on that one... (sad but true)

Here's the message re the Baltimore Hawk. It was dated May 25, but it still might be worth a call or an email.


"Good afternoon. My name is Bill Blonder, home phone is 410-323-7813, e-
mail is bjblonder@yahoo.com. I just wanted to alert you to an abandoned
Studebaker Hawk in Baltimore. This is on a dead end public street and
scheduled to be towed (& probably scrapped), by the city. I was hoping
you could alert your membership, if anyone wanted to save this it is
there for the taking, but probably won't be for long. The location is
the dead end block of Rose St., at the very end of the street. This is
the first right turn off Sinclair Lane just west of the intersection of
Sinclair La. & Belair Rd. The car appears to be between 1957- 1959, and
is most likely a Silver Hawk. The body condition is actually pretty
good, but it has been stripped of all trim and glass. The passenger
compartment & trunk are full of parts of other cars, and there are some
on the roof too. The engine block (a V-8) is there, but this too has
been stripped of everything extraneous. The doors & hood look very good,
the fenders have much less of the typical Studebaker rust out than
usual, and the rear quarters aren't really bad either. The rear edge of
the trunk has some damage, as well as the sheet metal just below. Not
only would this be a good parts car, but it actually looks as if it
might be restorable as well. I just wanted to give this information to
someone who can hopefully get the word out to those who might want to
prevent the destruction of another Studebaker. Please let me know if
this has any such result. Thanks, Bill"
