  • Another barn find, '37 President coupe!

    On the way to our fall tour, our tourmaster stopped at a local car show and saw this car. From what I was told, it was in a barn for 20+ years. It has virtually no rust! Plenty of dirt, though. The owner says he's keeping it as is. Good for him!

    Neat car. But you know 20 years ago literally feels like yesterday to me... It doesn't seem like that long in a barn.

      Except for the dirt I hope.

        I'm with Scott. FIFTY years in a barn would raise my eyebrows, but even that seems like yesterday.
        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

          I can remember when 20 seemed old now it seems like yesterday.

            What a nice car, Chip; thanks. I, too, hope the owner cleans it up, brings the mechanics to operating, and then leaves it alone. Nice time piece. BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            Ayn Rand:
            "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

            G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                I hope he leaves the kitty's paw prints in place in honor of keeping the interior free of mice!

                  Is it for sale? I love that body style, and it being a President with a rumble seat adds to my car lust!!

                      Wow, what a nice car. I concur, a little soap and water, tune up, brakes and tires, then drive and enjoy.
