  • A day of Studebakering

    It was a good day. Finally got the front suspension put back together on the yellow '54. It was so easy to take apart my friend and I thought it would be easy to put back together. But it took 4 separate attempts to get back together. It was kicking our butts but I bought a new spring compressor and it worked like a charm. Then I took s2d out for a quick spin after having the brakes bled. I just can’t get over the paint on s2d. It’s so impressive, I could get lost looking at the car.

      I know the feeling. These cars just beg to be loved. Especially the Studebaker tri-5 coupes.

        I was telling the mechanic that bled the brakes on S2D that I'd wanted a '53/54 since I was a year old. He was like I didn't even know kids that young knew what they wanted. I told him at my first swap meet in May of 1984, at 18 months old, I was already obssessed with the '53's and knew that I'd have one some day. I'd go up to them a the swap meet, walk around them, and tell the owners if they had the correct wheel covers or not :-)

        It's a total dream come true.
