    Wow. What a gorgeous restoration. I knew George was working on that car, but had no idea it had been finished. Congratulations to him for that result. I assume that we will see this car in other Concours around the country.

      A fine looking car... It's hard to beat the early 1930's Presidents!

        I saw that car in George's garage when it was in many pieces. It looks much better now!

          Incredible President

          That is a Really Beautiful Automobile! It must be quite a feat to beat competition like those very serious Pricier, Luxury Car competitors.

              George owns some beautiful Studebakers and Avantis......but this '32 President 'takes the cake'!

              He still has a really nice '64 Studebaker Avanti...'Avanti White' with the gorgeous all 'Claret' interior...I helped with some engine work on it years ago!

                        I hope everyone realizes that this is NOT my car. It belongs to my friend George Vassos!
                        Yes he plans to have it at Warwick.

                            That is excellent news, and proves Studebaker is starting to gain a foothold in CCCA circles finally beating out long-established CCCA contenders.

                            If I remember right, Studebaker Presidents from those years have only received their CCCA status since the early 1980's.
