I was returning from my uncles funeral to day and met a group of studebakers in the south bound lane so i turned around and followed them to Car the Tupelo Car Museum .There were a Street rod cruisin going on and the Studes were from Memphis Studebaker Club with some stragglers they picked up along the way .Was a super bunch of cars
60 lark conv,62 lark conv, 63 wagonaire ,50 /53 pickup 289 nice
36 4 dr sedan,63 gthawk,55 comander c body 350 /350 ,60 2dr lark,57 president i think ,54 coupe (dont faint Stude Bob)94 jeep drive train.the guy bought a wrecked jeep off a train wreck, the drive train had 3.2miles when he put it in the stude. a 55 president that was out of Louisiana named Fred something the car was dark blue /white top prettiest one i ever saw. Just

Man, I've said it before and I'll say it again - there's NOTHING more inspirational that being on the road with some other Studebakers. As pretty as they are at a standstill (or with their hoods open at some meet[xx(]), they're many more times beautiful as they roll along with the sun and shadows playing off their brightwork and wheelcovers![:p][:0][:p][:0][:p][:0][:p][:0][:p][:0][:p][:p][:p]

I wish I had been there with you!;)

I sure agree with Biggs on that,to see a Stude in motion is the only way it can be fully appreciated,and to hear the V-8 rumble through the dual exhaust,well,you just have to be there.

Yup, it's certainly a point of pride to know that you're riding in a piece of glamourous automotive history, but being able to witness several other South Bend beauties as they rumble and shine - WOW! THAT'S memorable!

I wish I could share the video clips I took on the hiways in recent years. Even tho it's amature-ish (Hey - try holdin' the video-cam still and focused while your riding in a C-cab and driving and filming at the same time!), you get a feel for what Transtar and me are talkin' about![:p]
