    Contact one of our own! Rick Hawkins sold me my cover almost 5 years ago and I still love it! I haven't seen him on the forum in a while, but he goes by Hawk5619 and his email address is rick@wellingtonclassics.com

    Tell him that I said "Hello!"

    As far as the fixed antenna is concerned, the cover Rick sold me had a non marring grommet to place wherever it was needed.

    Quality car covers are a good idea, but how does one get around the 'fixed antenna' problem?

    Many years (decades) ago I bought a cover for my '53 Coupe from Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories. Incredible fit.
    BHMA was sold and the new owner drove it in to the ground.
    One of the original guys resurrected and operates as California Car Cover Company.

    When I'm ready for one I made a promise to myself that there's no way in this world that I would buy one from any of those clowns on EBAY

    Isn't that just those annoying things that clog up ebay when you punch in "studebaker parts"?
    I don't think my Stude sits long enough in any one spot to need to be covered. Not bragging, just saying I enjoy driving it too much.

    I purchased a custom made Calif. car cover http://www.calcarcover.com for my '63 crusier. I chose the Plushweave because I was storing it inside and the innerside of the cover was a flannel lining which I want for the new paint job on it. I checked their web site and they have a pattern for your '51 starlight coupe.

There appears to be hundreds of companies selling "one size fits all" covers and several that advertise custom made covers. If you have purchased a custom made cover for your Stude, please post if you were satisified with the product and from whom you purchased it. I appreciate your time and help!

    Hey, I was just thinking of posting something like this, as I was wondering where to get a great fitting cover. The stuff in the stores (ie "medium to large", one size, etc.) just don't cut it with older cars. Thanks for the info guys.

    +1 for California Car Covers. The one I got for my 53 fits well and has lasted well. I am about to order one of their new models that is more compact. Takes up less space when travelling.

    I bought one for my '57 Corvette and one for my '26 Dictator Coach from Beverly Hills Car Cover. Fit could not have been better.
