    So sorry to hear this.

    Ken Holste was a real gentleman; an honest inspiration to all who knew him.

    The Studebaker world has lost a significant person.

    RIP, Ken. BP

          Met Ken and Dick Stuart in the early 70s when my parents took me to a meeting at Kens to organize the Blackhawk Chapter, I was probalbly 12 and crazy about Studes. Ken had a Stude toy collection he took time to show me that night and since then I started colecting toys. Ken was always the kind of guy that made you feel he was happy to see you. My father bought Stude parts from his father and recently showed me reciepts possibly by Kens dad. Another sad loss of a Stude friend. Ed

            I went to the wake tonight. There were other Studebaker friends there too. I'm very sorry to hear he is gone, he was a good guy and he'll be missed.
