    Beautiful car.
    Good point, Dan. I've been staring at them, wondering. They just seem too white; too perfect. BP

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

      Bob; I checked the original photo and there is nothing discernible there. Just a blur.

        Wondered how long it would take for someone to notice I cleaned the whitewalls. I also cleaned the ones on the drivers side. A lot easier to do in Photoshop than it is on the driveway.

          Not that it would be accurate by a LONG shot - but has anyone [Matthew] looked at the roster to see how many Broadmoors are listed??? Last time I did such a search, I came up with less than 10 '57 President 2-drs. And of course, there's gotta be few sitting derelict or forgotten, but I'll bet there's not too many!
          Some of you might remember - there was a young lady in the NW that came to the forums seeking advice for a '57 Pres 2-dr that she'd laid claim to. It needed more than she was capable of doing and I suspect the car ended up abandoned just as she'd found it.
          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Around 2005-06 a young fellow from Norway spoke at a Naples car club meeting about a group of Norwegian car buffs who brought their cars to the US to do a Route 66 tour. He and his family had an Eldorado Biarritz convertible in which they participated and which he and his father had restored. His video and talk were very interesting. I asked if there were any Studebakers in the tour and he replied, "Broadmoor."

              I supplied a lot of parts to one of the cars that was restored and brought to the U.S. for this run. There were no Studebakers. There was one 58 Packard Wagon.....waterfall blue.

              Here is their website, do not know if the pics are still there.

                There are some pics from their Route 66 adventure, but most of the site's aimed at a Lincoln Hiway tour their doing in 2013. I did find one small pic where I could see a blue and white 58 Pack wagon. Does that thing reside overseas???

                  There used to be tons and tons of photos along with their daily reports of the trip on that site. I can't find any of it anymore. I was able to save this pic from back then~



                  There were many others, but that's the only one I loaded into PhotoBucket the last time we talked about that car here. I'll have to find the file I hid the rest of them in. There is at least one other thread about that car on this Forum- but I gave up looking for it yesterday after about an hour of searching...

                    That is the one! He had an individual doing the chrome in PA. I sent all of the parts there and when the chrome was done, my parts were shipped with the chrome back to Europe. Car was taken down to bare metal. They did a very nice job. Only thing not done original was the interior. They did not use any 58 cloth....did an all vinyl interior.

                          This one belonged to my friend Don Kelstrom in Seattle about 10-15 years ago. That's Don on the right and his partner in crime Bob Carney. This is what Don said about the car in a recent email.

                          It was a great car to drive and fund to take to swap meets with all my parts. I wish I still had the car, but it was sitting outside and getting the worse for wear, so I sold it to a guy that said he was going to restore it and resell the car. Haven't seen or heard about it since.
