    At that age, I would have preferred the seats in a Starlight to those in a TR4A <G>.

    Simply put...That is what it is all about! That car held three generations (at least) and instantly creates memories that feel good. Not much different than a crib passed down through the generations. Long live this hobby and long live Studebaker, and you and yours....all of you....!

    And Peter Crisitello claims that he has the "only currently running 1947 Commander 3 Passenger (Business) Coupe (14A-Q2) in the world." Reference: June 14, 2012 "Old Cars Weekly".
