I visit often and the exhibits continue to get better.

"...bearing pronounced protuberances of chrome."

Goodness! Such a risque link for a family forum, don't you think, Dick? <GGG>

Agreed: A great report and good press for our SNM. BP

One of the new exhibits in the main lobby is a large collection of at least two dozen color renderings of Studebaker concepts done by Ted Pietsch who worked in Studebaker styling from 1952 thru 1962. During his long career in styling he also worked at Ford, Chrysler, Briggs and American Motors. I took several photos but all the renderings are under glass so there are problems with reflection. The one above is one of the better. Will post a few others later.
