I have been a Studebaker lover since my first car my grandmother gave me in 1973. That was a 54 Commander 4 door. Since then, I've have many models off and on. I've had 3 54s, 2 55s one 61 Hawk Studelac, 2 64 GTs a 63 Avanti and now an 87 Avanti Convertible convertible. I'm not wealthy, so I have only had one at a time through the years by horse trading. My wife and I live a retired happy life in lower Alabama. I'm originally from Seattle and spent some time in Oregon and Las Vegas, NV.
