Remember the Studebaker?

By mountain_home_AR_realtor

For all you readers over 55 or so, you probably remember the Studebaker. My first new car was a Studebaker Lark. Of course, I grew up in South Bend, IN, so what else would I drive! Well, I had more than one, and grew to love that old car. I bought a rusted out old  1963 Champ pick-up truck back in the '70's and rebuilt it. I even drove it down here to Arkansas when we moved in 1977. I used it for a number of years while we were in the resort business and sold it about 1989 and it was still running. Don't know where it ever went. Now I own a 1950 Champion Starlight coupe, which I even drive to work once in a while. Those of you who live in Mountain Home, AR, probably have seen me driving it around town.

May 9th there is a car show at our CENTURY 21 LeMac Realty East parking lot, and you bet I'll be there. There will be all kinds of antique cars, free entry, awards given by Chevy Classic Club, and free hot dogs, too. You can bring your car, if you have one to enter. If you are in the area, stop and see my little "baby." Below is a picture of my Stude for all those who can't come to the car show. Also, if you are a Studebaker fan, go the the following link and join our forum. It is has a wealth of information:
