  • Cool photo gallery

    Ran across several pages of pix taken at Arizona's Gold King Mine, which is a resting place for old cars and heavy-duty trucks. There's Studebakers all through it! The gallery starts with a '54 Commander sedan, but not long after you find a 1938 K-35 that was an ex-Shell Oil tanker tractor. There's a couple of Larks and a very original use for the back window of a '50 Star Light, too. Thought you might enjoy.

    When I was there in 1994 I recall seeing a M series truck with a Ross Perot presidential sticker on it ("Ross for Boss"). I know that my wife got a shot of me next to it. I will have to dig out the album and scan in a copy.

                So now I know what else I can use to replace my steering wheel--- that '54 has a '56 wheel in it!!!

                I remember this town well~ In 1984 Dad, Mike and I loaded up Dad's '64 Daytona ht and a pop-up tent trailer to 'escape' Los Angeles during the Olympics. In Jerome, Az. (on a Saturday night if I remember right) we lost a wheel bearing on the trailer, and got to stay the night there--- it took some time to find a replacement. What an interesting place it was!!! It seems to me that we found an old building that once was a Stude dealership...
                I don't remember seeing any of these cars or trucks, though!!!

                    For those that are not familiar with Jerome, it was once a booming mining town that boasted a population of around 15,000 people. Over time the mines began to play out and the town slowly died. It is constructed on the side of a mountain and the numerous mine blasts caused many of the buildings (including the jail) to slide down the hill.

                    By the 1960's the town was virtually abandoned, but was soon taken over by "hippies" who were mainly astisans. In the intervening years many of the old historic buildings have been saved and today it is known as an arts community. If you are ever in the Prescott/Cottonwood/Sedona area, it is well worth the trip over on Rt. 89.

                    Still looking for my pictures of the Studes there.
