It’s a Long Road!!!! When I was 15 years old I was crazy about any old car. My father was a fanatic car buff and still is to this day in his 80s. We had may interesting muscle cars in the 60-80s. So this story is about my first truck. It was a 1959 Studebaker half ton. I was riding my bike one day and noticed it tucked in someone’s garage. I went knocked on the door and low and behold owned it some weeks later. It was a dream come true for me. I never did finish that truck, sold it and regretted it for years to come. I always had it in my mind to get another after other car ownerships. So I decided to look and found one in Oakley Kansas. Myself and my friend drove my Honda CRV and made the trip from Northern Ontario Canada. A trip and a half for sure about a weeks round trip towing a 53’ Studebaker half ton truck home on the back of a CRV. Not one issue along the road. Slept in the open air at rest stops with perfect weather. We now enjoy this original truck in the summer loading it with gear to go to our local beach. It is a dream come true again, not only for myself but my 9 year old son. He too is now old car crazed. Pretty sure I know where he comes by that from 🙂 .
