Please NOTE: Welcome to the website for the new Studebaker Motor Company. We are a new company, with a new logo. Please be advised: We are not associated with the old Studebaker Motor Company (1852-1966). Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/studebaker
to learn more about what happened to the original company.
In 2002, Tom Raines, (from Texas), thought it was a good idea to resurect the name, so he incorporated, started a webpage, made a few calls, and got the interest going. I met Tom Raines in 2005 while visiting a friend in Texas. In 2006, my then five-year old daughter, asked me what I was going to do to help save the planet. That struck me, first because she's only five. Second, because I too, had been thinking about this subject. Kaitlin went on to tell me that she'd recently watched a tv show depicting how people would soon need to wear gas masks because the air polution would be so bad. So, I did what any person would do, I picked up the phone and began a dialog with Tom Raines. Not long afterwards, I became Tom's partner, then purchased the remaining stock in 2008, then moved the company to Colorado a few year later, and reincorporated.
Over the years I've traveled, and met with industry-ralated people, and even visited South Bend. Many people have contacted us to inquire if we are accepting donations, or selling stock. My answer is this... please contact me to discuss your interest. ...and yes, I am interested in partnering with someone, preferrably someone with resources.
Here's who I am.
I'm a guy who has always liked Studebaker vehicles. As a young man, in the 50's and 60's, I saw lot's of Studebakers on the road. Then one day, not so many cars on the road. Now, I rarely see any Studebaker's on the road. So... hopefully, one day in the near future, I'll be able to manufacture Studebaker vehicles that are in some way reminiscent of classic Studebakers, yet brought into the 21st Century. If possible, reopen factories that have recentily been closed (Ford, Chrysler, GM), and employ Americans in those manufacturing and assembly plants, which shall be on American soil. I desire to make vehicles that not only compete, but have a significant cutting edge in a highly competitive world market.
