My Old Hometown

Phoenix has been my home for far longer than anywhere else I’ve lived but the town I consider my old hometown is where I went to high school and where my mother still lives.

Here’s what it’s known for…

Gold Dome

Studi 63

SB Chocolate

The last one is pretty much a giveaway.

The University of Notre Dame, Studebakers, South Bend Chocolate, and that’s about it…South Bend, Indiana.

And because I have nowhere else to post these photos, here are some more photos of the above Studebaker, which was on display at an art fair in downtown South Bend.

I usually spend more time at Notre Dame, which is really beautiful, than I did this trip so that is the only photo I took there, unfortunately.

  1. No doubt about it, Indiana is certainly different from Arizona.. I went through the state many times years ago but my best memory? Strange as it might be is of a breakfast I got there in the southeastern part of the state — three big pieces of sausage, eggs, and lots more… in z little town I can’t even remember.. Considering some of the fare I got on the road it was outstanding!

  2. The dome is beautiful. The car series is very interesting and a good reminder of “the good old days” of dual headlights and steering column mounted shift levers. Nice post!

  3. Howww beautiful. I think Ryan is going to bring me back home for either Thanksgiving or Christmas, so I can’t wait to see all these things covered in snow (!).

  4. Quite a change from South Bend to Phoenix! I always loved the Studi’s: hated to see them go! They mad sense in a lot of ways. When I was a kid, my Dad had two of them.
