868 Steinbach Nutcracker Studebaker
On the occasion of the Collectorsí
Exhibition in South Bend, Indiana, the K. S. Adler Company of New York
held a dinner party for all their guests and staff at their exhibition
booth, after which we were then invited to the Studebaker Villa. Today
this home is a designated national landmark and is open to the public
for tours. There arenít many of us old-timers who havenít heard of
the famous Studebaker Brothers (there were five of them). They were
automobile pioneers in the United States, just like Daimler and Benz in
The U.S. Army still used thousands of
these heavy Studebaker trucks right into World War II. Whenever we
managed to seize one of them, we couldínt drive them very long because
they consumed enormous amounts of our scarce gasoline supplies. One of
the Studebaker brothers pictured in the elegantly furnished villa would
provide some rather serious competition for all of our nutcrackers
because of his enormous beard. In the year 1954, the famous Studebaker
Company became part of the Packard Corporation as a result of a merger.
But our Studebaker nutcracker brings back memories of the good old days
of the classic cars!
