    I have to ask if the son KNEW of his dad's wishes for the fate of these cars. Also, did he know of your efforts, Paul? I know if they had been MY dad's treasures, I'd hot have called the scrapper so close after his passing. Ehhh - estates bring out the best in folks, eh?

    Last chance sale of the Kirby Studebakers (and others)

    I hate it when people say "if this doesn't sell in x days, it goes to the scrapper", Well, I'm in that position now. I went to Kirby's for the first time since last Monday and found that the son-in-law marked every car I listed as possible scrap for a local scrapper to pick up. And, the local scrapper has started just that- three sliding roof wagons gone, '62 wagon w/roof rack gone, several sedans and a dozen or so non-Studebakers (including a '48 Packard). They have agreed to hold off taking any more Studebakers for now, but I don't know how long that will work.
    Hopefully my updated Studebakers list will paste here. Prices, with only a few exceptions, are estimated scrap values.
    I also learned of another kick in the teeth, a real Catch 22. The EPA will not permit sale of parts off the cars and will fine the family if they learn of such sales. They want the cars completely gone. So, any cars sold have to be removed. The reason they checked Torrey's collection in the first place was the state of WV made him get a salvage yard license even though it was a private collection and the EPA is cracking down on all salvage yards. See another post for a '58 Packard hardtop deal.
    Please PM me if you are seriously interested and can move the car(s) soon.
