We were working near my house and I had to get some stuff out of my garage, so I had to take the Stude out in the rain, so I drove it out in the yard. I though I would shoot some photos.

I know Jeff has put some photos of his beautiful 53 Starliner, but does anyone have photos of their Studebaker with the fall colors?

Leonard that is some incredible color in your pictures. I want to take some fall pictures but in SW MO the leaves have turned from green to dead. No color. I have been working in CT, RI and MA the last few weeks and the colors have been great. To bad I don't have my Studebaker with me.

LEONARD, this is your chance to get that unpainted car on a cover!
I certainly hope you have that first picture taken in a high resolution setting.
Very good shot! Even with that fender.
By the way, what do you have against green paint?

Let me know if that photo is coming our way.

I've often wondered that, Art. Even a rattle-can job of a green somewhat close would be an improvement;)

That's sweet old car already; a little closer color match on that fender would rock!

Maybe it's a personalization issue; like Michael Jackson wearing only one glove:D

I Love Green!

but I don't have the money to paint the car and a rattle can fender would look worse than the primer IMHO.

My original photo is 3648 x 2736 pixels. I will email it to you. Thanks.

[:o)]Leonard, that's a BEAUTIFUL picture! Couldn't you just photoshop that right front fender for the sake of a TW cover shot? I know you're good with Photo Shop, and it would be a darned sight cheaper than a paint job.[:o)]

We've already seen mine, but that first picture really has brilliant colors, Leonard. I've seen some of those around here, but never on a weekend when I can utilize them with a blue sky. The fender makes it for me. In time it will be done. Nice work. [^]

It's hard to find fall colors around this area. Fall is "short" and the types of folliage tend not to have the brilliant reds.

I took this photo a couple years ago in a area about 25 miles from my house called the "sandhills". Its actually ancient shoreline and dunes from the glacial lake Agassiz.

http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t5/ee-engineer/Fall06enhancedsmall.jpg

The section of country road is SW of Kindred, ND. More about lake Agassiz:

https://www.dmr.nd.gov/ndgs/ndnotes/Agassiz/Lake%20Agassiz.asp

I "tweaked" this photo to make the colors more prominant. The original looks a little drab and the orange/yellows are not so bright.

FWIW, I've bumped up my earlier thread about my Lark because it contains two nice fall-colour shots.

This thread got me inspired to get out and do something today. I took way too many shots to upload and share here, but I'll post a couple and try to add a link to the photobucket folder. I have a ton more that aren't uploaded.

Thanks for the kick in the butt. I had a great day!

Here's a shot I took when Ozzie Sweet was photographing my 1948 M5 in York Harbor, Maine a few years ago. Some of his other shots of my M5 have appeared in a couple of antique truck calendars. He had the shot all set up for his huge old cut-film camera, all I had to do was punch the button on my dinky digital cam - but I got lucky even so.

We'll settle for a Stude with a decent breaking surf behind you. Don't worry about fall colors.

I am so jealous! One thing I really miss from New Jersey is the fall colors. Here in So. Calif we only have some green when & if it rains during the winter. The mountains are nice to see, but without that fall coloring, they're just a bland brown right now. What a great assembly of photos guys! They really show off the beauty of the subjects & the background, not to mention the pride of owning a Studebaker!

Ah, and therein lies the tale. If there's more than one Studebaker left on this island, I haven't ever seen it - and I'm not yet ready to make an offer on the '64 Daytona Wagonaire that shows up at MickeyD's in Hilo every so often leaking rainwater from the ragged holes where the bottoms of both front fenders, all four doors and the tailgate used to be. Not sure I'd like to have to identify whatever's growing in the headliner, if you know what I mean.

Right now I'm saving up to import a final-series Lark-body from the "lower" 48 or, if I gain a whole lot of money and lose what little is left of my common sense at the same time, a '64 Daytona convertible from Australia.

After that, I plan to let everybody know exactly what it's like to arrive at my favorite burger-joint drive-in window in the only solid and shiny middle-'60s Studebaker within at least 300 miles - particularly if I have to reach across from the right front seat to pick up my McFries and my Diet McCoke ;)

Man oh man do i ever love that 41 President, there is a 42 pres. close to me, that i have gone over with a fine tooth comb, all the things such as the waterfall grill, the lovely rear fenders w/ skirts the one piece windshield, and more. those are some of the best lookin early Studes, wish more had survived.
