Yesterday I drove out to Michigan to see a 55 Commander Starliner a board member had for sale. It was partially dismantled and is almost complete (missing a tailight). I spent nearly 2 hours looking at the car and it is pretty much rust free, compared to anything I've seen up here it was excellent.

So to make a short story not much longer, I decided to buy the car. Looks like I'll be picking it up in a few weeks.

I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out why my wife's camera phone won't connect to my computer.

Thanks Kent, nice meeting you!

Congrats Ron. However, I must warn you that it's the beginning of a Studebaker addiction. You won't be able to shake it.
Have fun.

Yeah, these cars and trucks have a funny habit of multiplying themselves in your driveway. All in fun though, enjoy it.

Love those '55's! Glad you've joined the fraternity. And yes, these folks are serious about the addiction thing!
