  • Transtar dreamin'

    I've always liked this shot. It was taken shortly after the Transtar was freshly refurbished - about '97 or so.

    Here's another pic - late afternoon.

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle!!

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Bob, that top shot seems to have darkened since I first saw it earlier today. What happened? Well, then again, it IS later in the day, now.

                I think the resolution of this photo's too low to work for cover art - Art?

                It's kinda strange to me that so MANY folks that are looking for a C-cab to work with will dismiss the long beds and hold out for a short one. There's NO WAY the short bed truck looks more graceful than this.[:I] Oops! Sorry Paul![:I]
                Not dissing the short beds - I just think the 8-footers are better porportioned. I think this affords them a bit better ride too.
                And as much as I'd LOVE to have one of the rare 9-ft beds (used on one tons), having seen a couple, I think it's kinda awkward-looking.

                    The top photo is like the end of the movie, where the Transtar has saved the fair damsel, brought dignity to the town and is ready to ride off in to the Sierra Nevada.
