  • 100 cars donated to college in AB including Studes

    Thought some of you might find this auction interesting. One guy donated 100 vehicles to this college in Alberta! They're having an auction in June. I count seven Studebakers.

    They're looking for volunteers to help get the cars sale-ready. Boy, would I love to get in on that! Heck, I'd just like to attend. Gord, are you watching?<G>

        Wow, this was not what I was expecting. Some very desirable cars in this group. Should raise a lot of money for the school.

          A nice bunch of cars. It looks like there's something for everybody. A couple of Packards too.

            This sale is only about 35 miles from me. I had heard about the big donation of cars, but didn't know the Studes were among them. I expect I will go to the sale.

              Good grief! Bob...thanks for posting this...as if I needed this distraction to set my mind to daydreaming and neglecting the chores. I am already hopelessly behind ...ugh!

                Did these cars come from the same collector?? Who ever it was, he has great taste. They all seem to be the most desirable of each of the models one could want.

                  Fond of 'orphans' too. Studebakers, Kaisers and a Corvair fixation <g>

                  As far as I can make out, the three Kaisers mentioned--the 53 HJ, the 51 Utility hatchback, and the 54 (its a 53) are all unknown to the Kaiser registry.

                    That may be what the odometer reads (as in 106K miles, for example).

                      This was announced a few months ago. It has raised a lot of attention in the Calgary area. The collage is about 45 minutes north of the city. Even if a small portion of the number of people that have mentioned going to this auction actually go, it will be a very busy place. Enough different cars to be of interest to a wide range of people.
                      Now all I need is a second garage to fill with one of them.

                        Interesting variety of cars. Surprising amount of Jag's in the group. My interests would be the Lark convertible, old Vette, the newer T-bird and a Vair convert in no particular order.

                            I'd go for the Lark ragtop.

                              Wow, I was expecting 100 cars in a field. These are very nice. What a joy it would be to go....but I am currently in reduction mode.
