My Classic Car: Jonathan’s 1951 Studebaker

My Classic Car: Jonathan’s 1951 Studebaker

I was 9 years old in 1951. My aunt and uncle owned a new ’51 Studebaker and they let me drive it on the farm. I promptly drove it into the creek and it had to be pulled out with the tractor.

I was 9 years old in 1951. My aunt and uncle owned a new ’51 Studebaker and they reluctantly let me drive it on the farm. I promptly drove it into the creek and it had to be pulled out with the tractor.

It was 8 years later before my folks let me drive again.

A while ago, I saw this ’51 Studebaker Champion Deluxe Starlight coupe and it brought back all those memories.

I bought the car on the spot.
