There have been episodes of The Walton's that have a 41 Studebaker in it. Last night, I finally got a glimpse of the radiator emblem on the Baldwin sisters' car. (John Walton was driving.) It was a Studebaker!!!

Studebakers were on the Waltons SEVERAL times throughout the years. If it was not a Ford A, it was a Stude!

I remember writing to a former neighbor - telling him of a Stude sighting on the Waltons - and I got a post card in return - a dealer 1966 Studebaker post card - getting USED in 1975! As a young kid that was exciting - I still have the card in my stash.
