I found this 54 Studebaker in a driveway in Martinez CA. in 1999. This is the same car shown later in "My dad's old Studebaker", which, by the way, isn't really his dad's old car. His dad's car went to a close friend of mine.

Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 with its Hercules JXD engine
was brought back to life and driven 75 miles back to civilization after
being abandoned in the remote Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for
two decades. Now in June 2013 the old war horse is getting some much
needed TLC and a new lease on life. This truck was built on May 23, 1945.
Studebaker Woody Fastback Custom at SEMA from Eastwood
Check out this interview from SEMA 2013 in Las Vegas. The guys from
Eastwood get an up close look at the amazing '51 Stude Woody that was built
by Hill's Rod & Custom in California. It features incredible wood work as
well as a 390 cid Ford Edsel V8 with a rare injection system that was
designed by aircraft engineers and featured on the cover of Hot Rod
magazine in 1959. This was one of the most popular cars at SEMA and we're
sure you'll be impressed after you watch the video.
Eastwood has everything you need to do the job right when you're restoring
your car, truck or motorcycle - welders, plasma cutters, powder coating
supplies, abrasive blasters and media, hand tools, rust solutions, paint
and paint guns, specialty paints and coatings, metal fab tools and more!

Dodge Army Truck First Run WWII 1940
First start and run of Dodge VF-402 1.5 ton Army dump truck; hasn't run in
probably 15-20 years (judging by condition of cloth-covered spark plug
wires). New battery and tune-up, oil changed. No ether. Ran good but
couldn't drive due to gas pedal broken. No, I didn't get it running before
shooting the vid!
1961 STUDEBAKER HAWK SPORTS COUPE " SOLD " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
The Studebaker had style. 1961 was the last year for the fins. Look at the
front end. Note the separation between fenders and the hood. These cars
were low and sleek. Everywhere I drive this car people stop and ask
questions and give the thumbs up or wave. When is the last time you saw
one? This is one beautiful car. The Studebaker has only 59,000 miles. Check
out the original interior. Note the "Fasten Seat Belts" sign on the
dashboard. The man I bought the Studebaker from had the hood come up while
driving and it promped him to restore the outside. He spent about $15,000
with new paint and chrome. It's beautiful. I have a great book he put
together with all the bills. The engine is a 259 V-8. Automatic
transmission. The Studebaker has Twin Traction rear end or positraction.
Manual steering and brakes. The only thing I had to do to this car was
install a new water pump. I just got this in and I've only had a chance to
drive it about 100 miles. I really like the way it drives. The only change
I would make to this car would be to add radial tires. Old School Garage
has serviced and safety checked it for your driving pleasure. Cond. # 2-.

1953 Studebaker on the Dyno
1953 Studebaker with a souped up 289 Studebaker V8 bored out to 302ci.
This one has a custom intake with side draft Weber carbs. Hear the roar of

1939 SS Jaguar starts after 20 years in bits
I only put 1 gallon of petrol in her tank and after an initial few kicks
she refused to start until it dawned on me that I needed to pull out the
petrol reserve tap. The engine has no timing marks and she spits back due
to being far too far advanced. She's also very tappety.
The drive out of the garage was my first experience of driving her and the
street scene was the first time of her being out on the public highway. At
this stage she had a very noisey rear axle and gearbox and no interior
