ID:	1885451 I picked up a car yesterday from a guy with an amazing collection of cars, well into 7 figures. We finished our transaction and then he gave me the tour. Three buildings, very diverse. He just bought whatever caught his eye; he likes oddballs, so of course there were several Studes. I didn’t have much time so I just got some quick pics while we chatted.

    He wants to downsize more, so I’ll probably be making more trips back. I love this stuff..

      Interesting, based on the pictures. A 1958 Packard Hardtop that looks like the one that I owned for nine years, even the same colors (1 of 675, in all colors). A 1958 Golden Hawk (1 of 878). A post-Studebaker Avanti II.

        That figure is correct for Packard Hawks, but I believe made 878 Golden Hawks in 1958.

          Yes, Craig. I was thinking of 1958 Packard Hawks rather than 1958 Golden Hawks. I hadn't gotten back to make the correction yet.

          EDIT: I guess that it just shows that my responses come from my memory and not from looking these things up.

            My apologies for this train wreck of a post. I posted in on a fuel stop, and just now tried to fix it, with mixed results. I was sure a mod would be in to straighten it out by now, but maybe even they don't know how to correct on this dollar-store forum.

            If you are facebook friends I will post on the Studebaker Addicts page at some point, including the video I got (also not postable here). Sorry, all.

              I meant to add, the '27 Stude shown is supposed to be a one-of-eleven ever built. I don't recall many of the details, it was a whirlwind day.

                  Not too bad - so far.
