    Hey Matthew,

    I think this letter, or one similar, was on eBay a couple of years ago for about $9.99. It seems that they liked to spend their summers in New Hampshire.

        I'd love to have it, but for that price? [V] I doubt it will sell. [xx(] I don't have that much in the 4 Studes I've owned.[:0] Of course, I only paid $2.00 for the only restored one I've had, the dump truck, and it was traded for the '59. The '63 Lark was a gift from my grandad, and the '52 was free for the taking.

            I have been collecting old Studebaker snapshots on eBay since 1999, so I look at the listings every day. I have paid some high prices for some of them, but I think this guy is gouging. I am sure there was some correspondence from Clem Studebaker about his vacation in NH for about $10.00 because I started to bid on it.

            I just paid a high price for a group of NASCAR photos which show the No. 23 Studebaker.

            This vendor put them on eBay about 3 times but never hit the reserve. He finally put them on at $105.00 Buy It Now, and I bought them. I might keep the Studebaker picture and put the rest back on eBay.

                NASCAR would sure be a lot more interesting if they still used real cars. (IMO) [V]

                    I agree 100%

                    I used to go to Richmond (RIR) when it was a dirt track. I remember the 1960 race when it had rained the day before. The track was just a mud hole. The local Chevy dealer announced over the loud speaker of how the new Corvair would go through mud because of the rear engine. He put one out on the track and it got mired up to the frame and they had to get a tow truck out there to pull it out. The crowd broke out in laughter! The track finally dried out and Fireball Roberts passed everyone on the track by going on the shoulder in his 60 Pontiac. It was great fun!

                            Yeah, That was the first year for the Corvair and it never sold like GM expected it to do. I think the Ford Falcon outsold it by about 3 to 1
