That driver should keep his eyes on the road. Perhaps he sees a UFO? :D

Why is it that all the advertising from the late 40's and early 50's show the people about 3/4ths scale?

UFO ??? NO here's the real conversation with the blonde ...

"I don't care if we are in a depression honey I want to buy this car!", "After all President Hoover hasn't done a very good job and this depression is his fault, and besides I'm going to vote this year for Franklin D. Roosevelt and he keeps talking about stimulating the economy!"

Probably because they want their cars to look huge so people will think they are getting more than they actually do.

FDR was long gone by the time the 52 Studebaker was produced.
Interesting to see an ad with blackwall tires on a Land Cruiser. We are so used to show cars with wide whites we forget that most cars back then had black sidewall tires.

Back then people were about 3/4 scale to what they are now. Maybe 1/2 scale if you're measuring girth.
