Engine Bay - Studebaker Champion - 1950

A lot of folks like to see what's under the hood of our stock 1950 Studebaker Champion Deluxe. Here's a quick picture of the 85 hp, L-6, single carb, 6 volt, oil bath engine.

Steering Column - Flashlight Mount

A fun extra. We picked up a column mount and morse code-capable flashlight at Vintage Ford in Rancho Cordova, CA yesterday. Here's a picture of the accessory in place.

62 Degrees and Sunny

It's 62 degrees and sunny in California today - perfect driving weather. Here's pic of Doc all safe in his cave after an hour drive.

Just Plain Cool: Texaco-Branded 1935 Diamond T Doodlebug

The Just a Car Guy blog has a great entry highlighting the Texaco-Branded 1935 Diamond T Doodlebug.

I bought an ERTL Doodlebug toy bank yesterday at the Sacramento Antique Fair. The banks can also be had on eBay for around $25 or less. Each toy box is individually numbered and the toy is well made.
