            I tracked a lot of the information on the Delorean in its early stages, partly because I was interested and ordered a new one. I know of John Delorean's connection to Studebaker, but do not recall any connection with the Delorean car and Studebaker.
            The local Toyota dealer was a Bricklin dealer, but the nearest Delorean dealer was two counties away. I can remeber going to the Delorean stand at the New York Auto Show for the introduction of the Delorean. All but one there didn't even want to speak to me until I told him that I had a Delorean on order.

                Ther are of course earlier SAE Studebaker papers available from SAE. I have several from the late 40's-early 50's period. They are interesting, well written, and can be humorous, particularly the article reagrding the introduction of the V-8.

                I'd post them, but SAE would throw me in jail. You got to pony up and buy them from SAE.

                Maybe RTQ has a list of the SAE Studebaker papers.

                    Here's what they list if you search "Studebaker":
                    http://www.sae.org/servlets/SiteSear...per=studebaker . If you order from them, the paper comes with a pink sheet, warning that they will enforce their copyright. The papers appear to be from a poor copy machine. Pictures usually aren't very clear.
                    The paper about the 1951 V8 is excellent. There's a good one about the Avanti, too. In the '60's, there was a regional, (California), presentation with slides and text, about the R2 engine. The national organization doesn't have it. I wish I knew how to get that one.
