    I don't know, Craig; it does look like it to me.

    Some of the comments in the Hemmings blog entry suggest that is a diorama made up of various high-end model cars. I could believe that.

    What do you guys think? BP

    There's a 1958 Packard Hawk on the far right side of the pic.

    Besides the Eldo, there's also a 1935 Ford Roadster, 1941 Cadillac 60 Special, 1946/48 Chrysler Town & Country convertible and other collector cars in this pic.

    Yes, a diorama. Very well done, but still a diorama. Giveaway clue is always the windshield trim and side window bright-work trim.

    Right, Kurt, the closer you look the more you realize it's a diorama, albeit one of the best I've ever seen. Check out the 1959 Pontiac top center, pointing toward us. The front grille surrounds just don't look right, for example. BP

    Now that we've established that it is a diorama...all we need is a "time lapse" progression of the scene. As the original "collector" passes on, where the next move is a crusher, then the bulldozing, as the place becomes a shopping center, then falls into disrepair, urban blight, and finally, fenced in & closed by the government (with grant money) to protect the rare one tooth moon mouse...so rare that no one has ever seen one!

    10038 -- Is that a Chrysler Town and Country convertible in front centre? If so, probably the rarest and nicest car in the bunch when new.

    Look closely in the back right and you will also see headstones. A graveyard for cars and their owners in one place. Very convenient.

    No.

    I'm the guy with the cane and the only member of this forum that might recognize me would be StudeRich, because we worked together at Frost & French in the early 70's.

    Maybe we should change the name of this tread to "Talking about Studes in Roadside America" because on this new page we have one new picture posted and counting me 13 comments. I do have some photos of my dad and various Studebakers but will have to get my tech savvy son in law to post them. Black and White of 41 Champion, 52, and 59 Lark.

    Nox,

    I can't speak for everyone but here's my two cents; bring on more shots of that caliber!

    Technically, this is "Americana" but frankly our cars were sent all over the world. Seeing them in their historical settings is really the greater goal and others have posted international shots too.

    Thanx for the nice words Ken! I might find others but they are rare as Studebakers were quite exclusive & rare in the days but if I find more I will.

    This one I found googeling, it was on a short visit on the 2017 international meeting last summer (I just missed it) & the thing is that it's got the old/before 1973 license plates so it's not possible to track it...

    Thanks, Nox; a nice selection.

    Two questions:

    1. Those all appear to have left hand drive. Do Swedes drive on the right side of the road, as in the United States?

    2. The photo in 10067 appears to have a two-piece windshield on a Starlight coupe. That would be unusual, or is it just an optical illusion?

    Although nearly all of its vehicles were left-hand drive, Sweden drove on the left until March 1967, when it switched to driving on the right.

    Bob...I don't have a response to your first question, but I enlarged the second pic and I believe there's some kind of reflection thing going on with the position of the car, sun, and light reflection. My Business coupe has a two-piece windshield, but this car has a dash-mounted rearview mirror, and I see no substantial divider like the ones on the two-piece windshield. However, on the second pic there is some kind of tube looking device attached to the car between the door post and rear glass? I'm wondering what that is?

    It looks like a well-optioned car with the rather rare factory turn signals in the front side grille bars. Great period photo.

    I aint got a clue about what a traficator is but I'm pretty certain it's a "semafore" as in turning-signal, many foreign cars didn't have indicators as standard so when imported these were installed.

    & I doubt the -48 has split windscreen.

    The custom with the kid was a big thing in the 70's, well known car now rotten & forgotten...

    & yep, we had left-hand driven cars allready then, I remember my mun sitting telling dad when it was clear.
    & before -67 it was free speed on highways & other big roads, my dad (born 1919) never could get used to that...

    From today's Hemmings daily.

    In the lane closest to us, the lane with the '53 Plymouth in front, is that a 1955(?) Studebaker station wagon?

    That's an old Seattle photo. If you are asking about the 5th car back from the Plym, it looks like an Ultra Vista sedan to me. Also, the lead car going in the opposite direction might be a '47-'49 Stude coupe?
    Newest car I see in this photo is a '60 Ford I think.

    I see a 1958 Chrysler and a 1957 Ford, but not "your" 1960 Ford (where?).

    First white/light color car seen over the hood of the grocery panel truck. The crisp fender line makes me say '60 Ford.
