    Jim, sorry to hear about your friend. I absolutely have heard and/or seen his name before. Was his '58 President a pale green and white example? I think I may have seen a car of his at Hershey before, too...did he own an Avanti at one time do you know, or maybe a beautiful beige '59 Lark Regal sedan?

      'Also sorry to hear of this. The Grubes made a family pilgrimage to The Pure Stock Drags one year and had a wonderful time.

      RIP, Jim. BP

        Thanks Bill, and yes, that is Jim's 58 President. He did not own a Avanti, but the Lark you are thinking of may be his beautiful Desert Sand 62 Cruiser. The Grube Family has a long history with Studebakers, their father's green & white 56 President is in the SNM. His brothers Dale and Terry have shown trucks at Hershey.

          That green '56 President Classic in the SNM is gorgeous! I remember it was a special-order paint job and interior combination that wasn't normally 'available'.

            The color is Ceramic Green, Bill, and you are correct: It was available only on 1956 Golden Hawks and President Classics. BP
