You are having way too much fun with all these oldies, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: WAAAAY too much!
Good stuff, Elizabeth, these were a great find. Good old Wazza! Sadly missed.

what a gem

i actually knew some of the members of the Studebaker family in Ohio

love the patina
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Both of these are, Sherri! What a cool honor that must've been! A shame they just kind of went down in flames for no particular reason. Good product - but aging plants...
Thank you!
Studebaker made some fine cars...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They did, Larry. Shame they couldn't keep going.
Man alive. When was the last time I saw or read about a Studebaker!!!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Probably the 60's or 70's I'd guess. It's a shame they didn't keep going. Just couldn't compete with the shiny new Ford / Chevy / GMC production lines.

You can't resist a little bit of rust, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Certainly can't! smile

The bonnet on the lower picture looks like real 1950s futuristic design
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Pretty cool, isn't it?!

Are you checking out a possible project for Frank to keep him off the street?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile It's a thought - unfortunately, all his tools are in England!

Studebakers were really good cars. I can only wonder if they would have continued, what their modern day cars would have looked like.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They were - I'd like to think they'd have kept up with current style, but with a flare all their own!

Perhaps designers will one day produce a quality vehicle with this look. But with no ongoing downsides.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'd love that!
That name goes back a long time, are they still in production?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Sadly, no. After 114 years in business, the Ohio plant shut down. It seems they just hadn't expected the price wars Ford came up with in the 50's. Even after a merger with Packard, their aging production plants and union strikes caused a slow demise. The last Packard rolled off the line in March, 1966.
My uncle restored and has a green one. It is his FB picture.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I bet it's his pride and joy!

It could certainly tell some tales !
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'd love to hear them!
My Grandfather had a Studebaker I believe
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh good for him!!
It's incredible how old shabby cars can provide beautiful images to those who can observe.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think so, too, Claudio. I find them so interesting!
