Keeping Studebakers On the Road

Matthew Burdette is a young Studebaker enthusiast (one of few).  I bought some chrome from him to dress up the ’51 Studebaker Champion, and he was great.  He also helped an elderly Stude club member finish his dream projects after the old man got too ill to do the work himself.  He’s a class act all the way.
