    Well what can I say....I am fresh meat to the whole Stude world. Blessed with a good wife that bought me a 1941 Champion Custom Deluxe for Christmas. I retired from the military in October and commenced to drive her nuts. Car was meant to keep me occupied and out of her hair, now it has become a family affair. Thank you for the welcome and look forward to learning all I can while completing my Off-Frame Restoration of my new old baby.

            It is worth spending the $25.00 USD to order the build sheet for your car from the Studebaker National Museum. That tells you a lot about your car, and where it was sold new.

                I'm also one of the newbies you are referring to. I recently bought my 1955 Commander Sedan with Ultra-Vista windshield. This car runs so good that people have started to ask me what happened to my other classic car (1958 Plymouth Fury) because they always see me driving the Studebaker. Unlike the Plymouth which has power steering and brakes, the Stude has none of these amenities but it's still such a joy to drive. This is my first Studebaker and has truly made me a believer of the quality and durability of these cars. I hope to add more Studebakers to my stable as time and money allows.

                  Guess it's time to say hello. Name is Robert, I live in the Salt Lake City area. I recently bought a 61 Lark VI which runs great but looks not so great. Working on getting it into the paint shop soon!! This is my first Stude and I must say I am happily surprised about all the online resources for these wonderful cars. Only thing I'm having a hard time finding is a front parking brake cable, other than that, getting all the parts needed to get this car looking and running good again has been a breeze! My 5 and 7 year old daughters absolutely love the car and hit me up for a ride almost every day!

                  I'm hoping to make it out to Colorado Springs next year to mingle with other Studebaker lovers, as well as enjoy all the fantastic cars!

                    Hey Robert, and welcome to the Forum! Looks aren't everything (as my wife affectionately tells me ) - what matters is that it runs and stops! Sounds like you've already got the hard part done.

                    Re: the cable, there are lots of StudeVendors to help you out. Check here: http://www.studebakervendors.com/ ... or maybe someone here will have a lead on that cable.

                          Adolph, welcome to the Forum. I don't see a photo - did you mean to post one?

                          If you're asking whether Haws were sold in the US, absolutely

                                Studebaker was long gone by the time I was born, and I had never even seen one until 2009 when my Grandmother-in-law was looking to sell hers. We were visiting her in Missouri and I went out to the garage just to look at it and when I opened the door it just took my breath away. I remember my heart pounding and all I could think was "I can't let her sell this to anybody but me!". I guess you could say it was love at first sight. She was so thrilled that I was excited about it that she sold it to me for $1. She was still driving it at the age of 86, I honor her by naming it "Dorothy" or "Dot" after her. She will be coming to visit in two weeks. That means I need to get the detailing done soon! I know she will want to ride in it.
