      My wife made a contribution to the Woody fund and got a T-Shirt. I will remember this every time I wear it.

            That is quite a write up. Your story helps to preserve the facts of the "Woody".
            I will leave it up to your English teacher to dock you on the numerous grammatical errors and at least one factual error (1980 was not "50+ years" after 1947).

              Chris, you're a teriffic writer. I loved your account of the saving of the Woody and all the folks who were involved.
              My wife & I had the privilege of seeing the restored car at the last South Bend Int'l meet in 2012. I couldn't stop taking photos of the car. It truly is beautiful and the restoration is sensational.
              By the way, I appreciated your guided tour of the new Studebaker International facility in South Bend.
              Thanks again.

                  It was the only car based 1947 wooden wagon. There were many Studebaker wooden wagons built on a Studebaker truck chassis.
