I had been in South Bend Indiana a couple of times in the past few years before I realized that it was the home of Studebaker car manufacturing. So, I thought it was worth another trip to that city. It was the last trip I took for the 2017 season.
While Studebaker was never considered a mainstream car it was a well made and totally Hoosier. The Avanti model has gotten quite a calling now and is sought out by many collectors.
