  • Sad day on the prairie

    Well it finally happened this afternoon, [V] that the car
    carrier company, "Haulin' Hermits" from Thornfield, MO showed
    up to load "Charlene" and take her off to her new owner in
    Waggoner, Okiehoma.....though she left in good company as an
    older sister was riding top side with her.


    The Hermits are a husband and wife team, very nice
    couple and interested in Stude's...of course I told
    them about the club and this forum. This is their
    dispatch mumber, should anyone be interested down
    the road, for their services: (651) 793 4374.

        My same thoughts exactly....luck of the draw!
        But it is nice to have a "soul mate" to ride
        along with you....

            Thanks for the great picture! My only hope is that the top Stude doesn't leak anywhere near as bad as mine!

            Ready for a trip to the beach!

                I was thinking the same thing. I hope the black 'rally' stripe washes off [)].

                    I hope that SUV doesn't bounce too much. If it does, I think it will get the worse end of the deal from that bulletnose!

                    Funny how those two Studebakers are riding together, yet traveling in opposite directions....Wait, those 1950 Studes were always thought to be coming toward you when you saw the rear, or was that only on the starliner models with the wrap around rear window?

                        I can't quite make out the mechanism, but I sure hope that there is something other than the hydraulic rams to keep the '50 above the '53. I think it is safe to assume that the '53 will have something dripped on it, hopefully not brake fluid. I have had a Studebaker's nose damaged in transit by being too close to an SUV (Escalade) on the trailer.

                            There are slots in the steel arms that they place a hooks through
                            so that the arm is lower it can only go so far (if you look close
                            you can see the slots on the arm, just left of the windshield....
                            Everything was tied down on all for corners...but no protective
                            covers to shield from leaks
