    It's worth the membership fee just to get the SDC publication "Turning Wheels". If you haven't seen that magazine yet, you're in for a treat.

    I would also echo the advice for good seatbelts. Getting your driver's licence only begins the learning process. It's an old car and has no built in safety features. You won't spoil the value of the car with such upgrades.

    This thread is amazing, Dang you MB you beat me to the offer plus I had no idea you were that young.
    I'm an old crusty dude of 47 and just love seeing all the young interest in these cars.
    Atomicrm, those pics posted by Craig look pretty cool to me, my first ride was a 64 El Camino when I was way too young to legally drive it and compared to that you have really scored here.
    It has a big back seat... Plenty of room to haul your friends around that don't have a car yet!
    For sure join the club and when you get ready for a different car be sure to keep that one.

    Dean.

    You're in Austin! Cool[8D] so to speak.[)]

    Here's a link to the Texas SDC Chapters. Meeting local folks helps greatly in finding both local parts and service providers who have demonstrated knowledge and respect for our favorite marque.

    I think it is great that teens are enjoying Studebakers. I got my first one,'59 Lark, at 16 way back in 1964. Enjoy the car and as has been said remember it is an old car and treet it as such. Would love to see you guys start a Teen owned Studebaker thread. Who knows TW may want to do an article on you guys.

    Here's two '54 Land Cruisers you can drool over for now. The only real obvious difference between the '53 and the '54 is the egg-crate grille.
