  • When is a Studebaker, not a Studebaker

    I have owned more than 50 stock Studebakers and three modified Studebakers. I try to appreciate them all and be tolerant of other's desires in vehicles.

      Here is another good example of how the posting times are in error on this forum. The response that I posted shows as being 49 minutes earlier than the post that I was responding to, yet other posts that I just made have the correct Central Time.

          When is a Studebaker, not a Studebaker

          I see some people putting Chev engines in Studebaker,or diffrent sub-frame under it and trying to sell them as Studebakers. Instead of putting a Chev engine in,why don't they just buy a Chev with a chev engine. To me it takes alot of effort to restore a Studebaker back the way is was. On e-bay they should have a misc section just for that. Misc parts car.

            Is West Virginia where Jeff is in a different time zone than you are? I always thought it was the time zones vs the Central time they use, but nothing seems to make any sense when it comes to that posting time and placement on the forum string!

                If everybody with a Studebaker insists on having a Studebaker engine,there might not be enough engines to go around.

                    Yea...49 minutes wouldn't be a time zone thing. Must be something else.

                            Take it from someone who's been "shown the light". I've got a horn button that I took from a '57 Silver Hawk. The Hawk was gonna be really expensive to restore as it was pretty rough. So, in a moment of inspriation, I simply drove a running, driving, 42" cut, riding lawn mower up under that horn button - secured the mower's steering wheel to the bottom of the Hawk horn button - and created a HIGHLY modified Studebaker.[:0]
                            It was easier, cheaper and it makes cutting the lawn a bit less odious since I get to drive a Studebaker in the process.

                            Yes, I'm in a "time zone" all my own.Deal with it.

                            No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
