    Interesting in the row of 1950 Commanders, three have painted headlight doors and two have chrome. Not a running year change, but a trim level?

    It was fun for me as a 10 year old to watch new Studebaker cars being unloaded from ARCO auto carriers transports in our yard at the farm. I must confess. Some of these "new" Studebakers left the farm as slightly used cars. My brother and I knew where the keys were.

    My Dad and Al grew up together and Dad (A Studebaker Man) sold trucks for Al Payne[ATTACH=CONFIG]51461[/ATTACH]
    Wonderful photos, Ken; thanks so much for posting them.

    The last photo with the loaded truck; are you one of the youngsters in the bed with the cargo? Are those bundles of old newspapers or ???? BP

    Richard, that would make for an interesting book. What can we do to motivate you?

    There is often more Money in Parts and Service than Sales, with a lot less Headaches.

    My family visited friends in State Collage, Pa back in 1961. I remember them saying they had a local friend that was a dealer but had scaled down to being a parts & service dealer only having stopped selling new cars.

    Brad,
    Thanks for the plug and yes, most of the online sources for information have been pretty well exhausted. My research limit was reached when the Newspaper sources wanted a subscription fee. We already have an Ancestry.com account which has a wealth of info and is still being used. It's always been a mainstay of the project to rely on information offered by others like Bob Kapteyn and and the contributions are noted in the listings. Last year, Richard Quinn forwarded 30 pages of single spaced dealer names, which are being worked on. The Museum probably has information, but it would be for sale.......weh..wah..tilt!. Sooner or later, the info will be found, but on a slower time frame. Remember this adage? ..... "the Oxen are slow, but the Earth is patient".

    Hi Bob, As far as I can tell, Randy doesn't do anything in this regard. The domain he used 7 years ago (automotivehistoryonline.com) went from a little something auto related, to a Plastic Surgery Blog (go figure).

    I can use the newspaper ad you tagged, as it's not been recorded yet. Thanx for that..
