  • School is startin up.

    Well, unfortunately it is time to start going to classes again. However, I will be driving to school everyday. And that will hopefully give me the opportunity to share the glory that is Studebaker with my generation.

    Now I just hope no one hits it. Its a high traffic school.

    Enjoy getting back to school. There will come a time in your life when you will wish you COULD go back to school. It will be a whole lot more fun in retrospect. As for driving your car to school, when I was in high school I drove a gold 1955 Commander Coupe with a high performance Studebaker 289 engine. This was in the late '60s. I earned respect on the streets of my town and no one gave me any guff.
    I really like the idea that you want to spread the word about Studebakers to your generation. That is very important in our efforts to keep the Marque alive and on the roads. Keep up the good work!

      Ha I will definitely take the opportunity to enjoy while I can.
      I definitely enjoy college in the long run, I just don't want to start back up again haha.
      Oooh, that's gorgeous! I haven't really been disappointed with Studebaker's look, other then the XUV.

      I'm really happy I caught the Studebaker fever. Much like most of my generation, I had no idea what Studebaker is. But then it was love at first site. Plus they have such a rich history. And thank you.

        I remember watching all the Fords, Chevs and Dodges in my high school parking lot and swearing I would be different. Anybody can drive a Detroit built car. Fell in love with a Studebaker and 40 some years later, I'm still driving a Studebaker. Go for it!

          Good luck in school. A Studebaker will definitely stand out in the crowd!
          In all my years of high school I drove my Studebaker only one time to class, and it wasn't even technically to the school. The second half of my senior year my only class was advanced building trades for half the day. I drove my '40 out to the job site one of the days we were out there. I would NEVER drive it to the main school building because the parking lot was somewhere that I couldn't keep an eye on it. Now I'm waiting for the Fire Dept. to call me so I can start school for that...

            I hope that in 39 years I can say the same. It would be wonderful if my Commander makes it that long. I'm gonna do my best to keep a heart beat in it as long as there is a heartbeat in me.

            Thank you.
            All of the parking lots here are out of my sight. However I'm able to park in a parking garage that has cameras. So if I can't have a constant eye on it, but cameras will.
            Good luck with the fire dept. Hopefully they'll call you soon.


            What I love is that there are other old cars that will park up here. I've seem an Imperial, Hudson, Plymouth, Cadillac, and a number of others. I've forgotten what they were.
            But not another Studebaker.

              Yesterday was the first time I wasn't teaching in a math classroom since 1967 as I finally retired this last June 15. Now we have more time to drive and show our Stude than ever. Four AZ shows on our schedule in September and October. Halleluah!

                    Good luck. Back when I had my 64 corvair I drove it one day to school. I parked in the principals spot so no one would hit it. The principal didn't think it was quite the good idea to park there as i did but lucky for me he liked the car so I got away with it. Now I'm stude shopping and in my second year of college

                      At that point I'll be 102-years-old. Will plan on joining you at the 2052 SDC International!
