    If your going to contribute to something that is useful in promoting the Studebaker brand.

    1) Send your photo's to Turning Wheels a resource for the Studebaker enthusiast.

    2) Send your Photo's to Automotive History Online.com a photographic resource for future Studebaker enthusiast's.

    Just my two cents.

        When I found my 53 Commander Starlight a few years ago, I wanted to document what it looked like IN the barn and OUT in the light of day after 30 years! I was happy with the photos I took and then - somehow - I lost those files.[V]

        BUT![:0] Half a world away, they'd been copied and stored![:0] How cool is that[?][?][?][8D]

        Thanks to Michael Bostedt, I can once again revisit that hot July afternoon when I went out to a farm to investigate a lead on a "1954 Commander". Of course, it was really a '53, but that made it even better for my tastes.[]

        Miscreant adrift in
        the BerStuda Triangle


        1957 Transtar 1/2ton
        1960 Larkvertible V8
        1958 Provincial wagon
        1953 Commander coupe

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

                Why, yes it is! And specifically - it IS bat crap! The little flying rodents liked the open rafters above the Stude. What was even more amazing to me was that once it was washed off, the dung hadn't affected the car's finish or trim at all![^]

                            I have had this dream many times...opening a barn door and finding a 53 Commander hardtop resting in the dark. However, it has never happened to me.

                                53, 54 Commander are my personal favorite. The magic touch of Raymond Loewy can really make the difference. I don't remember how it all started but one of the reasons I like Stude definitely have something to do with the incredible design of 53, 54 Commander. I'm not Studebaker owner, but when the right time comes that will be the right Stude for me.
