The Broadmoor needs a new home. It runs, it drives, it stops, etc etc.. I like the car but I'm not as wagon-crazy as I thought I was, but I had a blast getting it on the road. I've thought about selling and buying a modern car, but the more I look at what's out there, nothing looks as fun as a Stude. I'll keep using the F150 for long trips and suck up the high gas prices.

If anyone wants a decent, loaded Broadmoor wagon, I'd be interested in trading for another Stude. Pickups, late 30s sedans, or anything else interesting. If someone wants a pretty cool longroof and has something neat for a trade, let me know. I'm just looking to see what's out there.

Matt,
Never met you, but in reading your many posts and writings, I am thinkin a Hawk would be a good fit for you :)

Though a nice wagon, I dont need another Stude wagon but I do have a very nice 2001 Lincoln Continental with all the bells & whistles that I would trade for a 25 horespower or larger wood chipper. If you find somebody looking to trade such a wood chipper for your wagon, you could then in turn trade the wood chipper for my Lincoln. ;)
Perhaps with enough persons wanting to trade an item for something else, we may be able to get what we want. Perhaps it could be called 'six degrees of swapping'? :)

Matthew,

How about a Coupe Express? Richard Quinn has one of his for sale for a pretty reasonable price.

I am such a sucker for wagons - been very jealous of your 57 from the start. Sorry though, nothing here to offer in trade.
Not even a wood chipper.

Welcome

Agreed!!! Matt definitely needs a shiny BLACK HAWK!!! His Grandpa ...or I ...can attest to the strange powers a young guy driving a BLACK HAWK can have over the women.;)

Matt...Matt...Matt: I should have pressed you when you 1st showed loss of interest....But I didn't want to sway any immediate negativity after the fender pain.....I just bought a 62' Lark wagon. No engine, SW dry car. If your still a mind for a later wagon with an very solid body and a great 1963 Cruiser drivetrain (289 w/OD)....I would talk trade..I would have never bought this car were I to know yours was available......Let me know..

The Bro-in-law and Sis-in-law's first date was in his '62 BLACK GT HAWK back in 1965. They've been married 44 1/2 years now.:cool:

Well ok guys, I hate to keep on a topic using Matt's thread, but you're not gona' believe this. I met my wife of 44 years ( April 6, 1968) and at the time, I ALSO owned a 1959 Silver Hawk, Velvet Black in color, with red interior. Kept it for another year and had to sell it to buy something she could drive with "creature comforts" Within a few years, we found another '59 Hawk (pictured at the left) for her, and have had it all this time. You just never know.

When I showed up at my girlfriends house in South Bend with my brand new 63 GT Hawk, she said "Why'd you buy a Studebaker ?" Not exactly a "cool" car in South Bend.

When I met Miss Edie it was 1967. I was driving a 57 Chevy. She let me take her home from church and agreed to go out with me a time or two, but in 68 when I drove up in a 56 Sky hawk, all black and shiney, she started talking marriage! Must be something mystical about a Black Hawk! NT

Second wife and I have been together now for 31 years. My sole vehicle when we met was an 8E12 W/5spd. We even went camping in Canada in that thing. First marriage lasted only 16 years - course, I didn't have a Stude when I met her.

hmmm ...just a wild guess, it must have been some color other than BLACK. Didn’t you see the memo??? It was clearly posted at Doon’s & Zar’s!!!;)

PS for JDP: My former girlfriend ...now wife of close to 45 years ...and I had a Strawberry Shake & Cherry Pepsi this afternoon at the Doon’s in downtown Mishawaka. Do you remember that place? ...well, the only thing that has changed is the prices.:D


[OK, now back to getting Matt traded out of that Wagon and into a BLACK HAWK!!!:cool:]

I'll stay away from black Hawks.. I'd end up married with no money to work on the car! <grin>

Keep the stories coming.. Pretty cool stuff.

Rather than reply to individual PMs.. A lot of people have offered to trade various Larks.. I'm not much of a Lark guy.

Unless something really interested comes up, I'll be ebaying the wagon. There's a specific Stude I'm trying my best to get. We'll see if I can twist the owners arm enough.. If that happens, it'd be "the" keeper car..

Is this the one I want, and would possibly dispose of 'Sheba for?

I don't think so. But, the '51 business coupe does have a price tag. It is not cheap.

Bob, I'll give that serious consideration.

After reading some of these, I am now convinced that this ONLY works for black HAWKS. :eek: :p

Hey Chris- In my experience, if you're about impressing the ladies, avoid most Studebakers:) What you do, see, is get yourself a popular car to lure 'em in; if you find a keeper and want to see how devoted she is, THEN you pull out the Stude. If she still goes out with you, you know she really likes you!;)

My close friend Mike, with whom I raced for a couple decades, calls my green Lark 'Motorized Birth Control'. We like putting around in it anyway. But then, we've already got our women, and they're fine with us going out in it. Keeps the ladies' clothes on- hard to do with us two stallions...

Some amazing facts & figures coming out in this thread!!!;)

"Any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is BLACK." – Henry Ford

IF ...Studebakers had only followed Henry’s lead in their HAWK line imagine how many more loyal Studebaker families there may be today!!!:cool:

Well I had a different experience with girl and car.
When I asked a pretty girl for a date, she in return asked what I am driving.
I did an about face and marched off.
I was driving a 55 Chevy delux hard top,
Not a speedster but it has value now.

Any yokel could catch a gal with a black hawk. When I met my wife I was driving a faded grey 40 Champion. That was 55 years ago, been married for 48.

I don't know, Matt, better think these "Hawkish" suggestions through, got my slim, blonde, younger bride in a 56 Sky Hawk with the passenger front floor rotted away. We got married in Florence, Al. in 75 in July wearing polyester after driving that Hawk all over trying to find someone to marry us. She just claimed the missing floorboard and resulting exhaust/engine heat blast was "air conditioning", then later helped me fix it up, vend out of it at SDC meets, and show it. Good gal ? Special car ? Lucky guy ? Better think, ha !! John
