The 2014 "Glidden Tour" brought a lot of pre-war old cars to Johnson's Ice cream Shoppe Monday in my home town. With this very nice 1937 Studebaker!!!

Nice looking car. We just don't see enough of the pre-war iron out there these days. I really like them. Especially the late 30s through '42.

I think there were at least 5 1941 Studebakers there, but I didn't know how to put more than one picture at a time on this site...

I would not be at all surprised if 1941 models have the highest pre-war survival rate, and the most restored. I remember the 2002 International Meet, there were 9 restored '41, and at the 2010 Pacific CanAm Zone Meet, there were six there.

11 Studebakers on Glidden tour, nine chevys, Great time, everyone should do one of these at least once. 200 pre war cars driving around the country side. Doesn't get much better. Jerry Kurtz

Day # 2 of the "Glidden Tour" this nice looking 1926 Studebaker must be very rare! The owner and his wife said they don't trailer, they "drive it" he said only 800 more miles to drive before they get home...

Can you tell me what year car and color?? I didn't ask names, and there were about 190 cars... The all came thru the ice cream shop in just a couple of hours, it was rather interesting. My job was to help park cars, whenever I saw a Studebaker I tried to get a picture...
