    Some of our cars have names.

    The Silver Hawk is 'The Shadow'.(Solid black paint) The name came from the old radio show.

    The '63 GT Hawk is 'Sweet Magnolia'. It's Ermine White and one of my grandma's cars.

    The '51 coupe is 'Old Bullet'. (Kinda self explanitory. )

    The Sky Hawk is 'Ferrous Oxide'. (it has rust issues. [xx(])

    The '56 Power Hawk ('54 Commander coupe clone) is 'The Coupester'. My 6 year old cousin named and claimed it. [8D]

    The '56 Champ two door is 'Charlotte', but we just call it 'The '56'.

    My Scotsman is known as 'The Great Pumpkin', 'Orange Crate', and several other 'orange' related names.

        I have too many now to name and and too short a memory to recall them anyway. Of course I could be like George Foreman and name them all "George". When I bought my first one (a '49 2R5) I called it Clem. The second (a '46 M15A) I named it Hank. I soon had more vehicles than there were Studebaker brothers so I gave up.

        The only exception is my '62 Champ which is named "Ole Yeller".

                    My Mum had a '56 Chevy wagon she named Bessie. My wife and I had a '72 Cadillac Fleetwood that we named The Queen Mary. She was always referred to as 'The Queen.' We always joked that two Hondas were necessary to park it. Kind of like tug boats. Actually, Hondas kinda look like tug boats...

                    Then there's Sweetie, a '62 Lark 4dr, whom I sent east to Kent in Michigan, and Poor old Frumpy the unwanted '52 (for whom I've yet to find a home), last (but not least) Pick-A-Truck the '62 Champ.

                    Lest we forget The Blue Witch, a '64 Wagonaire, who went to George in So. Oregon. Also La Poubelle, another '64 Wagonaire who also went to George.

                    I almost forgot my namesake, Grandmum's '62 Regal wagon, Studeclunker. Robin's egg blue with a dark blue interior. She was my favourite of all.

                            I tell folks that my Transtar's name is Pete, but I have a hard time actually using that name when talking about him/it. It's "Transtar or "truck" in casual coversation.

                            I DO like Ike for the '57 President. It would be GREAT if I could get a vanity plate that said that or ILKEIKE (I like Ike - for those of you too young to remember.[}])

                            I aften refer to the 58 wagon as "thundertub" in deference to it's rumbling dual exhauts and it's size!

                            Miscreant adrift in
                            the BerStuda Triangle


                            1957 Transtar 1/2ton

                            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.

                                The only car I ever named was the first one I had that someone gave me when I was 13 years old. It was a 40 Plymouth that I named Elouise. I even wrote it on the door. I just call all my Studebakers "Baby" as in "come on Baby, I know you can get me home".

                                I don't have a "I Like Ike" bumper sticker but I do have one from the 1964 election on my 64 Daytona. I use it as a quiz to see who can guess which canidate it is representing. Mr. Biggs can probably get it. I don't think I will post it here. I will make a new thread.
