    In your search not only is joining SDC International, as has been mentioned, a good idea, but search out your local chapter as well. Often this can be a source of first hand informaiton. It also would be a source of trucks found closer to home.

    FYI, you CAN tow an automatic Studebaker, just not 4-down. You've gotta use a tow dolly.

    Hi everyone, I am new getting back into the Studebaker world. I was born in 1969 and came home in a 63 Lark that we had until I was in high school. My first car was a 62 Lark that I had a definite love hate, mostly hate, relationship with. But my dad loved these odd little cars and for some reason, I seem to still have the illness myself. Recently I have convinced my dad that a good second car for he and my mom would be an old Stude Truck. I was thinking a champ and dad really likes the 50's vintage trucks. Any idea where I might find a decent one? I am in Florida and am willing to do some work to one but I am not looking for a basket case. I would really like to find a manual instead of an auto as my parents could tow it behind their motorhome and go to Stude events and such.
    Thanks
    Shawn

    What am I nuts? Do I really want another Stude?

    Hi Shawn,
    Welcome to the Stude Forum... As mentioned, there are many avenues to invetsigate to help you find a good Stude Truck. However, joining the SDC is the best first step I can suggest.[^] As you likely know, it's worth while having a support network when you own a Stude![B)] You can even join online:

    Good Luck! The search is 1/2 the fun.[] I spent 8 months to find mine. [8D]

    You can peruse the for sale ads in TURNING WHEELS, watch Ebay and Craig's List and stay tuned in to this Forum. They are often brought to light right here.
