Studebaker Legacy Lives On

"The Studebaker car company died nearly 46 years ago. But just saying the name brings back memories of malt shops and good times for some residents of South Bend.

For more than a hundred years, Studebaker made all kinds of vehicles there at the company’s sprawling production campus. Everything from horse drawn carriages to the stylish automobiles like the Lark and Avanti.

Today the town is a very different place."

Hear the story on Chicago Public Radio.
