    Eddie, I must confess to being in love with your truck!My '56 Parkview gets a lot of attention. I am considering though adding the diagonal Studebaker script to the tailgate.

    Whenever I have driven my '53 Commander Coupe, I get the same attention. Most folks out there have never seen a Studebaker - of any kind. Your Champ is a diamond in a world of coal.

    Today when I took the Lark to Costco for gas, I had a Subaru Outback tailgating me, then in my right side blind spot.....Argggggh! When I hit the left turn lane they passed by with their horn honking and a big thumbs up; sometimes it takes me a bit to relax and remember I’m driving something unique and folks sometimes get close so they can get a better look!

    That is a nice looking truck . Great color . I hope mine looks that good someday . Here is what mine looks like today . It has a 259 and an automatic . It was originally a manual trans . The original seat is gone and a split bench from an older Ranger or Bronco II has been substituted . The heater box is no longer under the hood and an under dash AC/heater is installed (poorly) . I hope to slowly straighten it out while driving and enjoying it .

On the short 8 mile drive , even in the reduced traffic of the forced closure , i had several people rubbernecking . To day it was parked in front of my shop and 4 different people pulled in to admire it . A couple of them snapped some pictures and one guy said he didn't know the Studebaker made trucks . It really drew a lot of attention .
    Very cool about your first drive in the Champ. And very cool all the admirers too.
