    Sad, but true. However, what was left of MAD did not even resemble the hilariously, satiric magazine of the 50s-70s. All their talent died out. First Publisher Bill Gaines followed by great artist...

    Joyous dead battery day.

    I went to crank the Avanti last nite and the battery was too weak. I gave a charge and later it seemed to fire up fine. Today I drove to get some 93 octane non-ethanol fuel (which I mix with 110...

    Somehow you seem to have overlooked the fact that per the Constitution the president is Commander-in-Chief of ALL US military including the Air Force. There's no courtesy involved. The president can...

    I'm pleased to see that someone feels a nice modified '63 with AC versus Supercharger is worth $30k. Makes me feel good. I sure lost my buttocks a few years ago on a '64 Hawk with 4-V engine, duals,...

    Good luck! Most owners way over value Studebakers. Conversely, most of the limited buying population won't overpay. Over the last 40+ years I've seen hardheaded sellers die off while the cars they...

    From a guy who spent $15k on an Avanti and then an additional $25k to restore it, I say be careful. Make sure it's not rusty anywhere. Rust is the bane of existence for any Studes except the plastic...

    As a semi CASO in his 60s, you more mature guys sure make me feel good. I admire people in their 70s and 80s still driving cars that ceased production over 50 years ago to meets and shows. I hope my...

    IMO, the vast majority of millennials want a KIA 4-dr or some electric piece of crap. They generally don't care about cars as long as they go. Very few are smart enough to understand that the...

    Yep. Just as I figured. Right now there are three, count 'em three, Sbakers for sale on the Charlotte, NC area Craigslist - that easily covers a population of over a million. I knew CASO's wouldn't...

    Same here in the Charlotte, NC area. I knew the crusty old CASO's wouldn't shell out $5 to advertise an overpriced Studebaker. If you're looking for another Stude, which I ain't, you'll have to...

    From '74-81 I drove a black 1959 2dr-HT Lark VIII with factory auto trans, 4V carb and dual exhaust. That was one beautiful, fast and fun car. Honest to goodness, I bought it from a little old lady...

    Mighty nice looking vehicle - right out of the 1950s horror movie "It Conquered the World." Only problem is that, like my '66, it has two doors too many.

    You really think shysters will be put off by a $5 fee? lol. That will probably only serve to embolden them by helping falsely provide an appearance of legitimacy. The old goat CASOs are the ones that...

    What a shame. Reminds me of 1973. I bought a very banged up, but not rusty, '63 Wagonaire sliding roof wagon from a buddy for $200. He had sunk money into it by swapping out the OHV 6 cyl for an old...

    CL going the way of eBay; unbridled greed. Then again, most of the Studebakers for sale in my general area are always ridiculously priced. Since 1972, I've watched dozens and dozens of decent Studes...

    Wow! I'm glad to hear this news. I've invested over $40k in '63 R2 Avanti R2333 starting in 2009. She's a pretty darn sharp now both cosmetically and mechanically. And she'll run like a scalded dog...
