  • Studebaker Reality Tour - Driving the Stude

    I have been making some videos of driving my 52 Studebaker, but they have all been too long for Youtube. So this morning I made two. I started at the house where I grew up. You may recognize it in the background of the old photos I post. My Sister lives there now.

    You will recognize the houses in these old photos of my 62 GT Hawk and my 53 Commander.





    The next video is driving down the road to my house which is only a mile away from my Sister's.

    Looks like you never forgot how those '55 Olds spinner Wheelcovers looked on that '53 Starliner a long time ago, so now there's a set on your "NEW" '52! [:0]

    If it was me, I'd probably do it kinda backwards: put '53 Stude. Wheelcovers on the '52!

        Actually I had a 52 wheel cover on the back of the 53. I think I am going to put stock 52 wheel covers on the 52 instead of the 56 Olds flippers.

            Cool videos, Lenny; 'nice to have been there to see Tuckaway Lane in person. ('Good that you didn't have to stop at the mailbox on your way in the drive to pick up the bills!)

            How far is it from what is now your sister's house to the Tuckaway Lane property? In what general direction? [?] [8D] BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                Looking good, Leonard. Engine sounds good. Time for oil on that door hinge? Was that Honda giving you the eye?

                        My sister's house is about a mile east of my house. Lots of people gave me the eye. On the first two videos that I shot, people were yelling "What kind of car is that?" and one guy was walking down the street on a cell phone telling someone that "he was looking at a Studebaker, maybe a 52"

                        Yes, I know I need to oil the hinges. I never noticed it until I listened to the video! [:0]
