Longest Round Trip In This Vehicle?: The 100 mile trip home.

What’s The Story?: I was contacted by a gentleman who asked me to help him sell his car (the Lark). I wasn’t interested since I already had my Avanti. During the process, the original owner of my Avanti contacted me and made me a very fair offer to buy back my car and return it to its original home in Ohio. After much discussion I reluctantly agreed. Now, without a Studebaker, I drove out to inspect the Lark in order to help sell it. Instead, I fell in love and bought it. I had the interior redone and replaced a few other pieces while adding a lot of TLC and elbow grease. I still have a ways to go, but it’s getting there. I love driving the convertible through wine country. This car gets a ton of attention. Love that Lark  

Would You Ever Sell?: Anything is possible, after all, I sold my dream car (Avanti)
