  • My Black Friday purchase

    Just thought I would share this with everyone. It might be familiar to some but it now has a new home. I'll post additional pictures and info soon.
    It is my first Studebaker so I'm sure I'll be utilizing the vast knowledge located on the forum quite a bit.

              I didn't know it was a sickness...I just thought I had a mental defect.

                Was this Tom Elliott's "Starla"?

                  Actually, this was Tom Elliott's car. He owned about a dozen 51 Studes over the years. This Starlight Coupe he bought in 1974 and it was his first car. He sold it around 2009 or so, just a couple of years before he died. Just before he sold it, I got it running for him and he drove it all around. Was the first time the car had ran in over a decade.

                  Hope you give her a good home!

                    It took a second, but I knew this car looked familiar.

                    Good score, and post some more pics of it!

                        Beautiful car! What a wonderful Studebaker
                        To have as a first one. Mine was a 1950 Land Cruiser.
                        Welcome to Studebaker, there is no known

                        But it always comes back!

                            Welcome to the wonderful and crazy world of Studebaker. You should be able to get all the information and guidance you need here on the forum. I swear, I think there are guys on here that were around when Studebaker was building wagons.
                            I love seeing the "Bullet Nose" cars staying on the road. I love mine. Have fun and happy motoring.
