Stolen from Facespace.
A 1966 Studebaker Cruiser with an Arctic White roof over Timberline Turquoise sporting a Thunderbolt 283 and automatic transmission rolled out of the Hamilton, Ontario plant. It was the final automobile produced by Studebaker, ending a storied 114 year history.
I registered for autocross on the 24th at Portland International Raceway. First time ever. What do I need to know?
Definitely not another ratty Studebaker wasting space in my garage THIS! I NEED THIS!
There’s a mystery brewing in Oregon... Because a complete incident report hasn’t been released 2 weeks later... Oy.
“Wanna sell that thing?”
Got 17" of snow last night and drove the RAV4 back though the aftermath.
The worst wheel/vehicle combination on the planet.
Did you know: A radiator for a Jeep CJ configured for a small block Chevy swap is a pretty darn close fit for ‘53+ Studebakers? $180 from Jeg's vs. a $600 recore of the original. I'm not a fan of the look, but it's the least of the aesthetic flaws on this car. Next up: replacing the heater hoses. Another fun fact:…

Portland could receive 1-3" of snow this weekend. Thousands will die, the roads will be littered with abandoned vehicles, and the city will resemble a post apocalyptic hellscape. FEMA is gearing up in anticipation of this epic disaster.
Time for handbrake skidzzzz!
