    Yup. It works. So Jimmy Carter and Bush the 1st had Studebakers. Good to know.

    There was an advertisement for Ethyl Corporation that showed Ronald Reagan with a Post War Studebaker Convertible. I think there were other references to his ownership of a Studebaker as well.

    Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt was a big Studebaker fan, buying a 1957 Scotsman new and drove it around her home in New York.

    When I met her in 1959-1960, she was being driven around in a Chrysler. I do believe that she personally owned one or more Studebakers. To be clear, that was Hyde Park, NY, not NYC as some may assume.
