    I took it to mean "Studebaker sense". Have any of his sons owned Studebakers? Does Lee have a history of political comments here? I don't know.

In 1955 she purchased a new two tone blue President State Sedan from Pitcher Motors in Poughkeepsie, NY. She also owed a Conestoga wagon at the time. She died in 1962 at age 78 and whether she continued her practice of buying a new Studebaker every year from 1955-62 I cannot say with certainty. I would doubt, however, given her status that she would have purchased a Scotsman. If you have documentation to the contrary I would be interested in seeing it.
    When I talked to Eleanor in 1961, she arrived in a Chrysler station wagon.
    There were a lot of Studebaker dealers here in Dutchess County, but Pitcher Motors was by far the largest. Pitcher was also a Mercedes-Benz dealer and continued to sell Studebakers to the end (1966).
    I am glad, but not surprised, that you spelled Pitcher Motors correctly. I see erroneous spellings regularly.

    Since were talking about Studes, George W mentioned a Studebaker in Chief Justice Rehnquist
    eulogy. Is there any history of note on that car? Or does noteworthy political owners stop at Presidents?

    Just curious.

    What the museum really wanted was for our chapter to restore it for them and donate our time and $$$. this idea was brought before the chapter and rejected.

    The Lady from the presidential library calls once in awhile to check up on

    What a bunch of freeloaders,
    I can't believe that they weren't art least willing to help with the restoration.
    All I can say is....

    Thank God, Allah,and that chubby little brass guy that someone said no.


    SEE If this gets removed now.

    Dean.
    All that I have done with the car, Transport, Labor,and storage has been Gratis. I offered to put up a small metal building to store it in for $1000, but they didn't want to spend that much on it.

    The VP of our chapter is heavy into politics and a strong Jimmy Carter advesary, and would have nothing to do with it. He made the statement:"I can't stand Jimmy Carter! I don't know I ever Voted for him!... TWICE!"

    Too bad your chapter didn't/wasn't able to restore that car--it would be a great way to get the name of Studebaker out in front of more people.

    You certainly did! I only referred to it because I was pleased to see the car mentioned in an article in a national publication considering the many artifacts present in the museum. His limo was also mentioned, but not by make. Probably unnecessary trivia on my part.

    Yes. the 1/2 ton M series was referred to in advertising as the Coupe Express right up to late 1947 (the 1948 model year). Less well known is that they also referred to the 1 ton M15 with the pick up box as a Coupe Express.
