  • Kentucky, anyone there?

    After living my entire 57 years in the mid-Michigan area, desiring more space, a warmer climate, and fewer and more lenient zoning restrictions, I have bought a home and five acres overlooking the Red River Valley in Stanton KY, and am presently engaged in moving everything we own down there.
    All of the household goods are almost finished, but my 7 Studebakers, parts, tools and other contents of my 5000 sq.ft garage still remain to be transferred. (each trip with my fully loaded LWB van hauling a 28' enclosed trailer takes 8-9 hours each way, we have already made 4 round trips, and it looks like it will take 8 to 10 more! Weather may also become a problem.)
    Anyone know of any other Studebaker enthusiasts residing in that (Lexington) general area?

    There are a few in that area although I don't think they post here. I'm in the Louisville area.

            BTW, if you're in Stanton, you live near the infamous "Studebaker in a tree". It's down around Clay City and visible from the road. I used to have a picture, but darned if I can find it now. It's a 1942 Champion Skyway IIRC.

                    Hey 65cruiser thanks for the heads up on the "Studebaker in a tree", yep, I also 'member seeing that picture in one of our old Turning Wheels, mine are already down in Stanton, now I'll get to check out the real thing. BTW, my very first Studebaker back in 1968 was a '65 Cruiser! got it in a lot of my wedding pictures, young and foolish, that was one that I let get away, regretted it every since.

                    4austin, cool, I also have an M-5,(1948) that's pretty solid and 100% complete, drove it into storage a decade ago, and have been gathering and hoarding M parts every since. when you say you are "looking for a standard 6" do you mean a M-5/Champion engine?
                    I intend on putting a Stude V-8 in mine, so my 6 will become available when I can find time. Hope that we can meet in the not too far distant future.

                        IIRC, you get off at Clay City (at the Mountain Parkway) and head toward Ravenna. It's off the left side of the road. I wish I could find my pictures.

                        Us Kentucky guys need to get together for dinner sometime.
