  • My New Car


    Hi All,
    I'm a newbie to the forum and this is my recently purchased 60 Hawk. She needs some work, mostly mechanical, but is driveable. This is my 5th Studebaker. The first was a '48 Commander Convertible in 1958. That was followed by a '53 Commander 2DR HT hot rod (put a full house Rocket 88 in that one...LOL) in '59. Then there was a '55 4DR in the late 60's followed by a '62 GT Hawk in "72 or so. Forgive me on the dates, I seem to have developed a terminal case of CRS in my later years.
    I also have a '37 Ford PU that is just about done and I needed a new project... It still has the old flathead (mildly hopped)and all the mechanicals have been completely rebuilt. It was built to be a daily driver as will the Hawk.

    It ain't a car if you can't drive it!

    Anyway - that's my story and I'm stickin to it... Comments are welcomed ... no extra charge for tall tales.

        I like your Hawk. Fords are nothing to be ashamed of. I drove Fords untill I got to where I could do better. NT

            Nice looking car! Looking at all the stains in your driveway, I can see that there's been a Studebaker or two there before. [)]

                I'm guessing that's the original "campfire red". As a fellow 60 Hawk owner I wish you all the best with her.
