We Need Your Help!

Wanted: Studebaker enthusiasts, aficionados, devotees, connoisseurs, buffs & fanatics to help us present the history of the Studebaker company, its people, and of course its vehicles in a fresh new way. We are looking for articles, pictures, advertisements, videos and most especially personal stories about Studebaker. From the Studebaker Brothers' blacksmith shop to the last Commander to roll off the line in Hamilton, Ontario, we are interested in anything and everything Studebaker. No experience required, just a love for Studebaker and its vehicles.  If you are interested, please email us at info@studebakerhistory.com.
