GH do you still own that car? I know someone with a blue one and I believe it had the same number on the side as yours, but not sure? Just curious.

Bville701, yes I still own the Stude. I have had the number 787 since 2002, before me the Boeing Employes Club had the number 787, I do not know what kind of a car they had, I guess you could go back in some old programs and look it up.

701:  Terry Hunt's Studebaker is blue -- known as "The Guam Bomb".  I don't remember for sure, but I think his number is 794 (whicxh isn't that far from 787).  I suppose you could look it up on Sumner's list of cars/numbers if you really want to find out.

Hey, I wasn't all that far off, was I?  At least Terry and Rose's car is the correct brand.

Yep the Guam Bomb was the car I was talking about. Sorry about the mix up guys. I like studes and have been thinking about building one, but I currently have another project I'm working on so it'll have to wait.

749 belongs to Greg Everitt (purple and  Yellow 53 stude)
701:  Terry Hunt's Studebaker is blue -- known as "The Guam Bomb".  I don't remember for sure, but I think his number is 794 (whicxh isn't that far from 787).  I suppose you could look it up on Sumner's list of cars/numbers if you really want to find out.
sorry for the above info, i read it as "749" not "794"
