            Hey, that 2 tone C cab looks like the one that belongs to a guy that works at my office!!!!

            Assuming its the same truck, its a old ND farm truck with a non-stock drivetrain. No body work, just a paint job over the dings and dents from the farm. Saw it in the lot at work this past week.

                Hi Jeff & Klif,

                Yes, Saw it too, it is a ND Stude Truck. There were lots of ND cars and rods there today. I saw at least 20+ Studes today. My pedals are really tired. Will be at the big Swap in the morning. A guy with an incomplete '60's Stude Ute said he was going to bring it and try to sell.

                Weather looks to be great, I camp out up on Randall Street in the center boulevard with trees. Like to have the EZ up and chairs set up to watch the parade. Cars coming and going on the boulevard all day....Great.

                Tonight we had 4 Studes all in one small area. Lots of tourists and nice comments.

                  JDP and me sold a Copper and White Transtar to that part of the country some years back.

                  1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                  1963 Cruiser
                  1960 Larkvertible V8
                  1958 Provincial wagon
                  1953 Commander coupe
                  1957 President two door

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

                    Wanted to go last night to University Ave, but I was so beat I opted to stay home. Looks like a nice turnout.

                      Had my R2 Lark there yesterday. There were a lot of questions asked about it. Most people didn't know these cars existed in stock form.

                          The Ute was sold at the swap. One of the swappers told me it went for two grand. The engine and bodywork done so far was well worth that. Also at the swap was a 4-door lark "police car" for $1k and a 41' two door, chopped with a chev front clip for $2500. The used car corral had a Lark hardtop for $6800 I think...pretty nice, but I kept moving to avoid temptation. Bought a Leather covered Hurst T-bar shifter nob, still in the original packaging, for the Salt2Salt racer for $25.
