Some of you asked for some more pics of my Grandpas place. He loved old tractors, cars and motorcycles. The cars are my dads, uncles, and grandpas. Enjoy

Awesome place! Man, would I ever love to caress some of those beauties. What kind of convert in the 1st pic? Is that your "namesake" in the last pic? I can't tell if it's a 4x4 or not. That would make an awesome restomod truck, too.

Wow , you have a gold mine there . I see you have an old STAR car . There's a STAR collectors club in Pittsburgh Pa that may be interested in it . Years ago , I had an old gent give me a lot of his old oil lease equipment before he sold out & moved to Arizona . He had built an old welder on steel wheels with an old STAR 4 cyl engine running a large generator . That engine purred like a kitten & the welder worked ok also . Anyhow , a guy in Pittsburgh found out about me having that engine & called me . While on the phone , he had me start the engine & run it for a few minutes . He bought it over the phone . When i delivered it , he showed me his STAR car collection & pics of other club members cars . Until then I had never heard of the STAR automobile . I hope you take advantage of the collection laying before you . I'm jealous . God bless , Ken

That is a 1949 Frazer. They only made 65 of the convertibles. Dad has had that longer than me! At least 45 years. Yes, that is a Stude pickup. My 4x4 is currently in the paint shop, soon to be restored. It is 1 of 22, 3/4 ton 4x4's made in 1959.

WOW! Lots of potential there. I hope you have been successful keeping the theives, and scrappers out. If people find out where this stuff is parts will start to vanish. I hope you have a BIG dog! Keep it safe.

What an incredible collection! I am a Studebaker fan as well, my next door neighbor kid had a new 62 Hawk GT when he was 17, now I have a 47 truck. Is that red car with the exterior exhaust pipes an Auburn or Cord? Don

It looks to be a 1935 Auburn to me,Don. Here"s one I found on the web. Not 100% sure, as the front nose doesn't look as laid back as the one in 4x4Stude's pic.
