Studebaked

August 16th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Shannon’s parents spent a couple days with us this week to celebrate Vivi’s birthday. In the evenings, my father-in-law regaled me with stories of his recent trip in his restored 1952 Studebaker pickup truck to a Studebaker “meet” in Colorado Springs. It took him and his brother three days to get there from his home in Moorhead, Minnesota, since the pickup can only go about 55 mph. I say “about” because the vehicle lacks an odometer and a speedometer. The trip sounds like it was great, full of relatively tame adventures and lots of time talking with other Studebaker aficionados at the meet. Here’s Dad beaming in front of his beautiful truck:
