  • South Bend Mayor doesn’t remember Studebakers!!!

    http://www.wndu.com/localnews/headlines/133521918.html



    To put it another way; the newly elected Mayor of South Bend is so young he wasn’t even born until long after Studebaker left town!!!

    He shouldn't be mayor if he doesn't even know the history of the city!!

    Geez.. Kids these days...

      Well...in due time it was bound to happen. On the otherhand, time does fly when you're having fun. You know, like taking great roadtrips down country lanes. You lose track of time, forget where you are at. This is especially true if you are a bear in his natural habitat. ;-)

        Still, someone in a position like that should know at least some history of his town, especially BIG things like what car was made there for about 60 years and was probably the single biggest employer in SB for many years...

        I was not born when Angels flight was around in LA but I know what it was. LA trolley cars were closed down in 1962 I think, I was born in 1964 but I know that they existed and even can show you some of the old tracks. I was not around for the PIKE amusement park in Long Beach but I know about it...Im just sayin.

        Even a non politician should know some history of his home town or home region.

          I wasn't around when Studes were made either.

          Then again, neither was my mother.

              Say, y'all, I listened to the interview and Studebaker wasn't mentioned at all; good, bad, or otherwise.

              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  Sunday at the Michiana Chapter's meeting in the SNM this "expected" victory for the young new Mayor was generally looked on as a "POSTIVE."

                  On January 2, 2012, all 12,400 SDC Members from around the globe need to email, fax or phone in congratulations and best wishes from the Studebaker Drivers Club! Now wouldn't that make some kind of "impression" on the young new Mayor of South Bend!!!

                    Just a bit of clarification: the story doesn't say the new mayor doesn't know about Studebaker. It just makes the point that he's 29. That makes him to young to remember the Studebaker manufacturing organization. For all we know, he's fully aware of his city's history.

                        Showbiz kid and BobP...good point. I didnt watch the video before I commented, I was going off of the gist of the title....The news reporter did say he was well studied in history so maybe he does know all about it.

                        Welcome, did we miss something in the story? now that I actually watched it.

                          Why will the Museum be under his care, thought it was a seperate organization?

                              I remember when Studebakers were new in 1952, went around to many of the car dealerships looking at cars when i was 9 years old. Went to Disneyland in Ca when i was 12, I also remember the Pike amusment park,and Knotts Berry Farm. My uncle worked for Disneyland in Maintenance, from 1955 to about 1970.
                              as for the new Mayor,were are gonna have to get use to it, Maybe he will tour the Studebaker Museum and gain interest in Studebakers.
