Studebaker Auto Museum

  The old car manufacturer Studebaker has a great auto museum in South Bend Indiana. There are three floors of antique cars, wagons, buggies and military items, made by Studebaker. Never heard of Studebaker? The were in business as a blacksmith shop in 1852. They built wagons and buggies before they built cars. The collection features the Barouche that President Abraham Lincoln used the night of his assassination, President Grant’s Brewster Landau, President McKinley’s Studebaker Phaeton, and President Benjamin Harrision’s Studebaker Brougham. If you have an interest in antique automobiles, you need to see this collection. It's almost all Studebaker. Studebaker closed in March 1966. This link will provide more information: https://studebakermuseum.org/ 

I took plenty of photos and here are just a few of them. My dad talked a lot about Studebaker cars when I was a kid. He would have made a good tour guide in the museum. Now I know what he was talking about.

  6. Failure. The one thing all Internet marketers never want to hear. And that is understandable. Nobody wants to fail, right? The number one reason why newbie internet marketers fail is because of inexperience. This article will give you some guidance on things to look out for as you gain that precious experience. Success is dependent on how fast you can learn. But if you are not very careful in what you are learning - failure lurks just around the corner. twitter smm panel
