2013 Mid-Century Modern Home Tour

There were a few dozen mid-century cars at the Sacramento Executive Airport as part of the 2013 Mid-Century Modern Home Tour. From Harley Earl designs, to a Citroen, to some really wonderful American convertibles. 

There were two Studebakers in attendance: "Doc," our 1950 Champion, as well as a modified 1950 Starlight Coupe whose owner inquired about the local Karel Staple Chapter Studebaker club

The Mid-Century fans had lots of questions about the Bourke/Loewy nose-cone design. If you're interested in the Mid-Century Modern Home Tour and car show, go to either and/or

1950 Studebaker Champion Fixed

  • New points in the condenser 
  • New vacuum advance part
  • Fixed the carburetor
The downside was the cost of the repairs, but the upside is that we're ready for the summer car shows.
