  • The greatest Studebaker feeling ever.


    When a Studebaker starts, drives and stops under it's own power for the first time in 35 years. Our '53 Starlight Coupe is now drivable. Not a show car but a fun enjoyable Studebaker. Paint is next. Hopefully we can afford it soon.

      Congrats, John. Nice indeed, and it still defines classic style 55 years after the fact! I'm trying to imagine a 2008 industry offering that will be so appealing to the eye in the year 2063. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        John--

        That rocks...and a 53 C/K in any shade or finish is always a welcome sight! Congrats on bringing another of these beauties back.

          Congrats John, I am sure it must have been that Gas Cap and correct Radiator cap I sent you that did the trick! [^]

              That is great news John. I can't tell you how exciting it was for me to do the same to my little beast 32 years ago. Well.... maybe you do understand, eh?

                      kinda gives me the feeling I had when
                      I smoked a joint back in the day. hard
                      for the unobcessed (is that a word?) to
                      understand.

                        Thanks all. We have a few things left to do yet. But it is drivable. And that is a good feeling. But you know something. I think I have a sickness. Why just a little while ago I was thinking how we really need another Studebaker............................................ One is not enough.

                          Yep...they're like really good potato chips...hey, if you've got the space and the cashflow, why not rescue another one!

                          (I routinely get the urge to acquire a second Lark. Which is the daftest thing I could do...I don't even have a driveway. Nor a huge bank account. Serial Stude monogamy, maybe...Anybody want a blue '62 in a few years' time??)

                            It definatley is a sickness, but a good one. I remember when my father brought his first one, we built a small garage to work on it, we were only going to ever have one. Boy were we wrong, we currently have 12 sitting here. but like I said its a good sickness
