There was a car show Saturday for a Police officer that was shot and killed. There were over 200 cars there and I took the 59 pickup. It rained before it was over so it ended early. http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s226/TMAN0950/P8310001.jpg

Your pickup looks nice and I am glad that you showed it. I have owned two 1959 pickups.
The guy with the GMC sure looks like he wanted to snuggle up to a Studebaker or he just can't park it in the middle of his space.
Normal parking spaces are really too tight for a car show. It is hard to see the vehicles or to take pictures.

I saw several cool ones at a show today, Labor Day, in my hometown.

Love the color on that Olds! I'm ashamed to say my Studes stayed home. I'm too thin-skinned at shows when guys walk by and make snide remarks about orange peel in my paint, or maybe see a little run in my clearcoat. These guys have mile deep paintjobs of perfection. My cars and truck are 'seen' at Home Depot parking lots.
That's a '28 Mack truck, BTW.

I bring my car just as a favor to everybody else to make their cars look better...

Great cause, hope the show brought some needed funds to the fallen officer. Nothing better than the generous nature of car clubs, car guy's/gals.

:D:DLOL I have a truck like that.
I think a bumper sticker is in order,
I'm here to make yours look better.(TM) [:0]UPDATE: Better go ahead and trademark this one;)[8D].
I drive it to help yours look better.(TM)

And this reminds me of a thread months back,
The next show I go to and park next to a nice Vette, and the owner is about to come unglued because I'm next to his GEM[}:)], I can say, Yeah....I'm going to park it here, cause I make your car look better[:0].
2R5-how many do you think we can sell? :D

That sounds like a bumper sticker that would be really popular with anybody who has a work in progress or beater that they drive. I think they would sell to people with all kinds of cars and trucks. Print it and they will come.:D

I find at car shows with the mirrors on these Studebaker trucks that people are always running into them , usually happens when they are looking at the vehicle beside you and they turn and start walking and "bang" right into your mirror [}:)] I now usually take a wrench with me and turn the mirrors into the cab.;)
