  • Driving my '65 Wagonaire in Westport, Mass.

    My wife and I took the '65 Wagonaire for a drive through rural Westport, Mass. today. We stopped at a lot of places to take pictures and talk to people about our car. At the Orr's Farm stand, where fresh corn, eggplants, tomatoes, and even pumpkins were ready, Mike the owner fondly remembered his '64 Commander that he had bought well-used for $75 (more than few years ago).

    The next stop was Gray's Grist Mill, where a mill has been located since before 1700, though the current building is not that old. They still grind white flint corn for "jonnycakes". See This area was settled in the 1630's, has many old houses, but still has some operating farms. It's on the south coast of Massachusetts, between Fall River and New Bedford. Thankfully, we were spared any impact from Hurricane Earl, and today was a gorgeous day for Driving Your Studebaker!

    Gary, theirs a lot more room in your wagon than in your M5. Is that part of the reason you took the wagon, or just so your wife could shop a little more? Thanks for sharing!
