Where's Pebble Isle at?

9,125 returns for Pebble Isle. Pebble Isle Marina (sounding good so far, huh?) is in Tennessee. I think that state is landlocked.

Yeah, and they have this really BIG water mass to it's West.
It forms part of the State's border- maybe you've heard of it.
It's called the Mississippi River!!!!

As soon as you find a product you like they will stop making it.

Well that's a first for me...a Stude on a pylon. Seen lots of planes, and even a tractor or two, but never a Studebaker! 55 two-door sedan, too...a sort of Stude I wouldn't mind driving round in myself...sort of C-bodyish but with more headroom.[:p]

Good idea for a thread if enough pix could be trawled-up: Studes as eyecatchers. I remember the yellow Hawk advertising a dealership by the roadside, posted here a year or so ago; many years ago a local diner called "Studeburgers" had a bulletnose Starlight hulk up top to draw attention (which worked); and (I'll dig it out on P'bucket) the dirt track at Nolalu, Ontario, had a battered 63 Lark HT stocker as its "signpost"...

And in 1950, there was a charity "dream house" raffle here in Hamilton; to go with the house there was a new (Hamilton-assembled) Studebaker, which for max visibility was parked on display, not inside the house's garage, but on top of it!

...Sorry about the extra-wide photo of the 63...been trying to resize it on P'bucket, but it's being recalcitrant...

My dad sold a nice 1950 Champion Starlight to a restaurant. It was yellow and a nice driver. They wanted red, so my dad had it painted. Then they wanted the drivetrain out. It was taken out.

It appeared in the Studebakers Restaurant in Downtown Toronto for many years. Unfortunately, they chopped the top off to make a convertible for extra seating. Then when the restaurant closed, they apparently cut it up further to get through the door. Somebody bought it, apparently with the intent to rebuild it. I don't think it was ever done.

However, there is a yellow 1950 2 door Studebaker chop top nearby that was in the Canadian International Autoshow along with my 1939 Champion. I wonder if it is or was that car? I didn't get to talk to the owner.

Let's not forget the Studebaker in a tree:

Forgot to explain that the name of the Nolalu track (from the most abundant of the local wildlife during race season) was "Mosquito Speedway"...hence the huge metal bug atop the Lark. The speedway closed down several years ago. The Lark's probably long gone.

That Stude apparently baying up a tree is hilarious...wonder what it's successfully "treed", a Nash Metropolitan maybe??:D

Here's one on a perch in front of Studebaker's Restaurant in Sault Ste. Marie Michigan. Owner likes Studes, lots of pix inside as well. Pretty good food to boot.

With the state fair in town, we thought you were talking about a new deep-fried fair food (wow, say that 10 times fast!)
