  • Hemmings Classic Cover Car Jan 2022

    We are very pleased to post that our 51 Champion Business Coupe, Blu Baby, has been honored as the cover car for the latest issue of Hemmings Classic Car, along with a six page write up. The editors approached several of us at the Northeast Zone Meet in Rutland, VT this past August, can't say I ever imagined our Champion would end up on their cover. Just goes to show you need to turn out at club events, never know where your car may turn up. Our thanks to the folks at Hemmings, they were wonderful to work with and certainly came through with a nice article. Good coverage once again for the Studebaker community.

      'Way cool, Mark; congratulations. 'Looking forward to seeing it. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        Thanks Bob, quite the surreal experience, seeing your car on the cover of a national magazine! It'd be nice to drive Blu to SB for the meet this May, we'll have to see if that works out for us.

      Congrats Mark!
      And some say Chrysler invented "cab forward" design.
      Cheers,
      Bill

        Just read the article. I was not aware that you sold your '57 Golden Hawk. Also a new 1957 Golden Hawk Owner but a 400?? Hope so. - Studebaker Drivers Club Forum

          Yes, it was with a heavy heart that we made the decision to mover her along to a more deserving owner, the original owners grandson. He has since restored the interior, that is restore the original leather, not replace as others have done, even had new carpet woven to match the original weave and color. And a complete repaint too, all something that wasn't happening if we still owned the Hawk. If I could have only proved the factory provenance it would still be in our garage, original paint and interior intact.

            I suspect that one will forever remain a mystery.
