I met my wife on a blind date in May of 1963 at which time I had a 1963 Studebaker Grand Turismo Hawk. We fell right away and dated for over two years. We were married on a failed elopement with her family present in July of 1965. Two years after we were married my mother had an accident and totaled the Studebaker.
Over the years I bought and "fixed up" many antique cars, but never a Studebaker. I finally bought a 1950 Ford Tudor for myself and restored it. I have had the "50" for approximately 30 years, but I started looking for my 63 Studebaker three years ago. Most were too expensive for me. However, after looking at one car for a year I finally bought it this May. We now have the same kind of car we met in in time for our 49th anniversary.
