  • The "New" Studebaker Motor Company!!

    Is anyone aware of the fact that there is a new company now in business with plans to build Studebaker named motorcycles, cars and trucks?!? Their logo is a modernized lazy S and they are featuring models including the Hawk and Champ!! (This is not the Avanti Motors Corp..) Check out their website: www.studebakermotorcompany.com This is definitely news to me!

            I'm sure we'd all like this to be true, but short of a company with the financial backing of say Toyota starting to make Studebakers again, it's just a dream.

            Consider the cost of that "new" body for 1957 Chevrolet's - it must have been more than a Million dollars to pay for the tooling - as that company said they spread the cost over 20 years.

                Every six months....Like clockwork![8)]
                Don't sweat it Chris, It's hard to stay in front of this crowd
                We had bets as whether it was a high school media class project website (all glitz and no content)...

                    Even if they DID manage to put out a totally new vehicle with the Studebaker nameplate - not many folks that I know could afford one![V]
                    Figure that such a car (we'll assume it's to be a car) would have to be revolutionary in engineering and/or styling. Then there's all those pesky safety standards to deal with. Heh - 'course, maybe they could get around such by claiming they were, say, Custom '47 model Studes for sake of registration and required fitments (like those 40 F*rd PU knockoffs being touted as '39 Coupe Expresses[}]).
                    Let's say we take NOS '47 taillights and build a car around them. Could we get away with claiming the end result was a modified '47 Stude?
                    I wish all these stupid revivalists would just let the Studebaker name be! The plant's gone, the company's gone, the magic has evaporated - or aged at best. Leave it be!
                    It's like those cheap-a** Bell & Howell shavers that assault us on TV from time to time. Does any rube REALLY believe that those shavers have anything more in common with that once proud American label besides the name? You can bet the maker in China hopes you're duped! That's the only reason they're not sold as Yow Ling cordless shavers! Not because they ressurected long-dead engineers from B&H to see if they could boffo folks into buying something with a name they recognize.[xx(]

                    1953 Commander coupe

                    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
