In 1963, when Lois Kulwicki’s father loses his job at Studebaker along with hundreds of other workers, he acts as if he has just been promoted. He buys a new car (the only non-Studebaker he’s ever purchased) and takes his family on vacation. On the way home, Mom dumps Dad at a Stuckey’s, and that’s the last they see of him.

Thirty years later, Lois has a family of her own, as fractured as her childhood family. Divorced but still living with her ex, she decides to move out with her two daughters and start over but then a stranger named Henry enters their lives. Out of this ersatz family, Lois tries to recover something of what she lost, beginning with a search for her abandoned father. The Last Studebaker is a warmly comic tale of lives changed forever, after the last Studebaker rolled off of the assembly line.





Lost Car Companies of Detroit

Among more than two hundred auto companies that tried their luck in the Motor City, just three remain: Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. But many of those lost to history have colorful stories worth telling. For instance, J.J. Cole forgot to put brakes in his new auto, so on the first test run, he had to drive it in circles until it ran out of gas. Brothers John and Horace Dodge often trashed saloons during wild evenings but used their great personal wealth to pay for the damage the next day (if they could remember where they had been). David D. Buick went from being the founder of his own leading auto company to working the information desk at the Detroit Board of Trade. Author Alan Naldrett explores these and more tales of automakers who ultimately failed but shaped the industry and designs putting wheels on the road today.History Pr

Excerpt from History of the Studebaker Corporation

During the past seven years The Stude baker Corporation has spent for advertising, yet it fully recognizes that the quality of its products and the satisfaction they give customers are, in the last analysis, the only safe foundation for the upbuilding and perpetuation of its name. It is the ambition of the author, who is its President, to continue the policies toward the public which will add luster to the name Studebaker.

After WW2, the market changed and Studebaker began to struggle, as resources were limited and smaller companies, like Studebaker, found they could not compete against General Motors and Ford. The Hawk series lasted from 1956 to 1966 and from 1999 they added the compact Lark VI & Lark VIII to their range.
