His father, E. T. Reynolds, worked in the Engineering Department for Studebaker. As a boy Ed was always interested in Studebaker and was privy to what was going on in Studebaker engineering. He was also able to make visits to the Proving Ground where prototypes of new models were frequently seen. In addition, the company car his father drove home was usually a prototype which engineers used as company cars after introduction. After a year or two the cars were scrapped. Ed personally rode in many of the cars pictured in this book.Ed currently owns a business named “Studebaker International” and is the largest manufacturer and supplier of Studebaker parts. The company specializes in rubber door and glass seals, emblems and trim items as well as mechanical and hard to find N.O.S. parts.
