This is not really related to the Studebaker but I lost my father, Lt. Col. John Alan Vonada to a stroke on Sunday, April 19, 2020. He was 76 years old. Considering he taught me everything I know about cars I was surprised I could not find a picture of him with the Studebaker. But he was amazing and I really miss him.
Your Dad must have been very proud of the fine son that he raised, and the fact that you are carrying on his appreciation of these amazing machines.
I am grateful for your Dad’s service to his country, and I am very sorry about your loss.
