    I just did a rough summary of postwar car and truck production and came up with 2,908,000.

    I would have though total vehicle production was much more than 3 million, since 1950 was the peak year, and that would have been over 10% of the total then.

    I think a check of DMV records worldwide would provide a surprising number of Studebakers still registered. I had heard some time back a number around 250,000.

    350,000 seems far too high to me. Perhaps it should state 35,000?
    The Soviet Army is still running 180,000 of them...

    Interesting. BTW, what was Studebaker's total production, and does anyone know how many are still registered or drivable?

    Article on SI from the Columbus (IN?) Republic

    I pulled up Google on my phone this evening and an article popped up from the Columbus (IN) Republic about SI moving operations to Hope, IN. Since my knowledge of Indiana geography is limited to South Bend is up, Evansville is down and Indy is in the middle, I had to Google map Hope on the home pc, it's to the southeast of Indy.

    I also get a lot of Bring a trailer article about Studebakers too.
