    Sad that the demo of the building has basically started already. It would have been nice to have taken video of the interior as it is now & insert scenes of an area with pictures of how it was during Studebakers being assembled. I often wonder when I see pictures of different parts of the past & try to put in my mind where the location was. Maybe its just me.

      Warren, I do have pix of the interior, office and plant, and they appeared in TW a few years back. When I get a moment I'll double check and advise which issue.

            You can also use the street address. When Studebaker occupied it the addres was 349 Ferrie Street East, Hamilton. Now it's known as 369.

                    Sorry Bob...no new info yet. I suspect they're having more problems than expected on the interior work.

                            Stu-

                            I greatly enjoyed your book My Father the Car about the final years of production in Hamilton-with the interesting twist at the end regarding "Larks." Others on this site-pick up this book which details the post-South Bend era of Studebaker car production that is not described in many other places.

                            As the owner of a '64 Commander built in Hamilton it saddens me to hear about the plant coming down.
