While doing some reseach on something COMPLETELY different, I found some old California friends I have not seen since the late '90s~

Only to find it sold earlier this month!!! I knew this car when it lived in Bakersfield~ it still looks okay, but not anywhere near as nice as it did back then...

I first saw this car f/s in Attascadaro on my way to a Zone Meet up California's Coast~

It's looking rough around the edges,
but it's now ON THE ROAD!!!
That can't be all bad, right?

Very odd the things you find while looking for Studebaker busses, eh?

Cool, the '58 President sedan has power windows.

While looking for pics of the '58 at that Zone Meet in 1995- I also ran across a pic of the wagon I thought I had posted above. I say 'thought' because as it turns out-- the one above is NOT the one I thought it was- they are TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT California Broadmoors!!!! The one I knew of was a solid color.

When I can get these pics scanned- I'll post them...

I have seen this car a couple of times cruising down the 60 frwy.
