    Ya joke about that.... There were TWO Studebaker-Onan generators for sale at the city auction two years ago. They were stuck, beat up, and basically huge boat anchors, but they were there none the less.

    ...On the other hand, the AD building is owned by some corporation not based out of South Bend. Building #84 AND Union Station are owned by two people based out of South Bend. I go by Union Station every day coming home from work. Union Station is completely land locked. The building butts up against the RR tracks and the other side against the street. Across the street is the baseball stadium. On the other sides of Union Station there is a parking lot and the far end stops at a side street. Aside from building #84, there is no room for expansion close to or on to Union Station. Given these conditions, I think this could actually happen. The only snag that this could run into is what if the owner of building #84 dosen't want to sell?
    Stay tuned.

    Haven't we heard that before... the old Administration building??
    I hope that buildings can be saved. It is good to see the Studebaker buildings there when ever I get into South Bend.
    This weekend John Deere collectors from all over the world are converging on the Quad Cities (Moline, IL is the John Deere headquarters) These collectors are having to pay $10 bucks a head to get in the door of Davenport's River Center for their big swap meet...
    Man do us Stude collectors have it made by going to South Bend! The vendors pick up the tab and the shopping is Free.
    Is that great, or what?

    Good to see someone actually wanting to save an old building and use it, rather than just push it down.

    Do we have enough elephant tusks in South Bend for that?

    OH! the leafy things! They will take awhile to grow.
