Studebaker Museum

Today I drove to South Bend to visit the new Studebaker Museum (April 20, 2006). It is only an hour or so from home, but I have been here few times. So, all you will find here is my visit to the museum. The Conestoga Wagon was not built by Studebaker, but similar to their products. The Conestoga gets it's name from the Conestoga Creek in Lancaster Pennsylvania, where the earliest version of the wagons that tamed the plains were made.
