In Greensboro, we love our trucks. The above Studebaker truck was photographed in the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive during the MLK parade. The vintage truck, in front of the old white house with the wrap-around porch, takes us back to another era in time- the 1950's, E series. There were several vintage vehicles in Monday's parade; however, this was the only Studebaker we saw.
According to "sailing adventure", on the Studebaker Driver's Forum, Studebakers were first sold in Greensboro by Gate City Motors at 220 North Church Street. Next, they were sold at Barry's Studebaker, on South Elm Street, until they went out of business about 1969. We're betting the above vehicle, and others like it, passed through Gate City and Barry's a time or two. New and modern has its advantages, but old and nostalgic has good points, too. Honk if the above scene brings back fond memories.
