I decided to write this article after taking a long trip in the Studebaker and hearing so many comments  thanking me for keeping this car on the road and “sharing” it with others.
I recently drove my 1955 Studebaker President Speedster – from Indianapolis to Miami Beach – down the Old Dixie Highway, on the back roads, through small town America rather than bypassing them on the Eisenhower Interstate System.

Some photos of my car and me from the International Meet in South Bend including several laps around the 3 mile old Studebaker test track. By comparison the Indy 500 Speedway track is only 2.5 miles !!

"Grandpa, will you help me buy a car?"
August 2008; 16 year old grandson Braden calls Grandpa; "Will you help me buy a car?" For Braden, money is tight; so with his Mom and Dad’s blessing, I pay for most of the car – a 1990 Olds Bravada.

May 2009; After several months, there are issues, a wreck, lack of proper maintenance, and some unpaid service/repair bills. He’s young; maybe too young for a car. The Olds dies. Braden calls; "Grandpa my car is dead, can you help with another car"? Grandpa: "NO!"

I wrote an article for it; unfortunately the editor decided not to print the whole article and left off the opening and the ending as well as 4 of the 7 items !

Me with dutchman Paul Dammes. Enjoy one of his articles. Part one and part two.

This was meant to be an eclectic type article but without the opening I don't think one gets a feel for what the article is about.
 
The missing opening statement was to be:
This article is a hodge-podge of Studebaker related things of interest from the last couple of years.

The last part was to be:
This article represents just a fraction of the rich history of Studebaker, of course. Enjoy the hunt for all things Studebaker.
 
Nonetheless, enjoy it.

Chicago is a short trip for most of us in the Indy Chapter. Next time you are there for whatever purpose, spend a little extra time and explore the two beautiful Studebaker buildings.

Karen and I meet our classic car and historic preservation friends George and Mary Fraser of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin there this spring. We explored the Studebaker Buildings. So, in addition to Studebakers, this article will speak a little about architecture.

Route 66. As some of you may know, I had traveled the 2400 miles back in 2006.
Right after I retired, I took my mother on a 17-day/6,100 mile round trip from Bedford, IN to Chicago. There we picked up Route 66, at the corner of Michigan Avenue and Jackson Boulevard, then on to the western terminus at the Santa Monica Pier. There we took the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco, then on to Sacramento to pick up US Highway 50 (“The Loneliest Highway in America.” A 1997 Time Magazine article about it was titled, “The Backbone of America!”). Then we went straight back to Bedford.

I love Arizona. It is much more than Phoenix, Glendale, Scottsdale and Sun City. Last year while in Phoenix, my wife Karen and I were told by the "locals" we needed to visit the

quaint historic mountain town of Jerome, AZ, about 100 mile north. We took their advice and were very glad we did. It is not on the "official" list of area attractions for the meet, but we think you’d like it.
