In today's Hemmings News there's a picture taken in Portland, OR in the fifties, and in it is a '47 - '49 convertible, rear view.

I saw that. Great shot. As mentioned in the article that street has been moved West of the river and a beautiful park now runs along the water. The street now known as Water Avenue or Naito Parkway, there are highrise buildings along the West side of the road now with the park along the East side. I love the historical photos. They help give some perspective on how an area or city changes over time.

I think there might be 2 more Studebakers on the other side of the road in the left lane just a couple of cars further away from the convertible. Hard to tell. Anyone else have a bigger monitor and see them better?
