ID:	1699625 Standing in front of my yellow bullet nose are (left to right) Bud Miller, myself, Bud's son and wife.
    Bud inherited this car from his father who inherited it from HIS father, who bought it new. Bud sold it to me after it had deteriorated to project car condition. After 8 years of restoration and a ridiculous amount of money, Bud brought his family to one of our meets to see the car. Bud's son looked at the car and said to me "you know that was supposed to be my car next" to which I replied "yeah, you want it NOW".

    Good on you for keeping your grandfather's car in the family. You wont have to suffer the angst that Bud's son felt when he saw the family car in the hands of someone else.

    Nice Lark and welcome aboard! Almost the same way I got in to Studebakers, only my Daytona came from my father in the mid nineties and I had it on the road in 99. Put 45000 wonderful miles on it so far, mostly attending SDC meets. The bug bit me hard so I acquired and restored my convert. Still cruising and meeting people in the best car club in the world. Again WELCOME.

    Bob

This has resulted in, not only a great deal of economic transportation and attention from the public but, by affiliation with the Studebaker Drivers Club, local chapter members, as well as this forum, a network of friends that would be hard to beat.
    That is exactly what I'm starting to learn.

    Thank you I am hoping to repaint it sometime early next year. Paint isn't bad but was done in a shop by my grandfather himself and I know I can make it better.

    Hi, my name is Ryan. This Studebaker belong to my grandfather and grandmother for years. I put the car back on the road and now I have become hooked on Stude's. Love driving this Lark VIII. So as a new member I figured I would post some pics of it since I don't think any have ever been posted. It's a 61 Lark VIII Deluxe. Enjoy! More to come.
