I went to a car show today and there were about 300 cars, but not a single Studebaker. :(:(:(

But there were some unusual cars there.

This is a 60 German Ford Taunus station wagon. I have always like the looks of these. I has a SBC in it.

And I love this 61 Pontiac.

OMG! I'm in love with an Edsel Villager! Ok, maybe it's just lust....

Only a boat as ugly as a 60 Buick could be two-toned with those colors and be looked at twice. :)

I'll take that '61 Poncho [:p]

(I need to own one of those at some point...hopefully a 4 speed, tri-power, 8 lug wheels, Catalina)

I agree with Dick. I love the Poncho. That Buick hurts my eyes. The Edsel is cool. I always wanted a '58 Ranchero to put an Edsel front end on.

The little German Ford is nicely done.

Well Len, if you were there, there should have been at least one Studebaker! ;)

Unfortunately my Studebaker isn't running. I should have stayed home and worked on it. I posted the problem on the technical forum.

That 61 Ventura was one of about 1300 made with the 425 HP engine. The owner bid it to 65K on ebay when the reserve was 100K. He later made a deal and bought the car.

Neat, modern version of the Muster's Coach. I've never hear of anyone building a replica of one but as you can see, it's doable.
Get a big frame, some fiberglass "T" buckets and a Ford 289...

The original 60s car is in an English museum, Barris then made at least one copy for a later Muntsres TV movie...that's the one you see him drive on "Car Crazy" and other events.
