                Both Frua larks are in Washington state awaiting their trip to Calgary- the best one will be restored- the other one will be preserved once it has donated any needed parts for the first restoration. Craig is collecting parts already- can't wait to see them in person. Titles were a bit of an issue, but that has been resolved.

                  Thanks, Evan.

                  Here are some of the NOS and good used parts I have gathered thus far as I complete a couple of other projects first before bringing them home:



                  The Good: Parts, NOS and used are available.

                  The Bad: Some were also used on concurrent Ferraris.

                  The Ugly: I paid the 'Ferrari' price.

                      Here is a really neat Pic I took from that "Newer Thread". It's Craig and one of his only 2 in the World Studebakers.

                      I think it is the ONLY time that Car has seen the Light of Day for a LOT of years including up to now:

                        So glad to hear there is still forward progress on these cars (even if one will have to sacrifice itself in the process).

                          Matt,

                          The second, less complete one will not have any parts raided off it to support the better one, trust me.
