        I think those who have the opportunity to attend the Toronto show are privilaged. Boy, I wish I could be there too.
        I know that a number of vehicles from the Studebaker Museum will be there.
        You guys, have fun.

            It is interesting that the local paper features three models that were never built in Hamilton. It seems like a '49-'52, a C/K and a '64-'66 sedan would be more appropriate. Anyway, it is still good to get the Studebaker publicity.

                99% of what was built here & used here also rusted here.We don't want people to get the idea Studebakers were oil leaking rust-buckets now would we ?.The 66 sedan,the last one ever built; was never sold and driven for regular use will be on display.

                    That '66 was driven in regular use. In fact, I can remember seeing it with snow tires mounted. The car has since been redone to look good in a museum setting.

                        Think what Kevin ment was that it wasn't sold through a dealership....Studebaker execs drove it up here before it was put away.
                        Hey anyone wanting to have a look at the Studebaker display and go to www.autoshow.ca then go to galery and check out the pics under the 2007 cruise pics.
