  • A little Studebaker history from rural north central Arizona

    Found the attached article, posted in this morning's Prescott Daily Courier, highlighting the use of Studebaker's Big 6 Touring car, over other brands that were available, not only by local law enforcement in Prescott (pronounced: "Press-kit"), Yavapai County, Arizona, but also in 11 of the 12 other counties in Arizona, at the time. Enjoy the read!

      Interesting read Glen as we reside in Mohave County for the winter. Thanks for sharing.
      PS: Did you note the "large V-6" reference?

        Thanks, Glen. Very, very interesting and shows why the Grand Canyon SDC in Phoenix used "The Sheriff" as its logo when hosting the 2010 international meet.

          The "Thunder Pumper"! That sounds like a great name for a bad ass Studebaker race car!
          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
