Here are some links of Studebakers, but I haven't seen a 50 Commander. Can you put the whole URL?

Didn't find the Stude, but loved the 60 Buick with 60 Dodge Seneca taillights[8D]

I don't think usenet is accessible via conventional URLS.

Google groups provides some access to usenet, but (maybe since I did not create an account) seems to skip "binaries" which is the kind of newsgroup that handles pictures instead of just text.

Some folks here (Nate, grumpy) frequent the alt.autos.studebaker newsgroup, among others. Maybe they know another way to get to usenet.

Newsgroups: alt.binaries.automobiles.carshows,alt.binaries.pictures.autos

Leonard's link takes me to "myusenet.net" which appears to be a commercial usenet newsgroup subscription service.
After viewing 3 or 4 pictures it went right to a subscription sign up screen.

My Comcast account provides access to usenet via giganews. I use Forte's FreeAgent to search, navigate and view files.
Before 2005 (?) AOL provided access to usenet, but took a lot of configuring to allow access to binaries, since a lot of them deal with "naughty" content. The extreme binaries newsgroups are the ones largely responsible for some providers eliminating or blocking access to usenet. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2326849,00.asp
