  • Studebaker oddity. Pictures from Burundi.

    Hi folks,
    Some two weeks ago, I went to a large swap meet in Belgium and found some Studebaker material related. I just thought you'd like to see it, too.
    Firstly, there is a series of pictures taken in Burundi (Africa) during the 50's. At this time, this country was a part of the Belgian Empire.
    Obviously, Studebakers were appreciated there.
    Secondly, I can't upload all the pictures so I will have to do a second post.
    Nice day to all.

    Christophe,
    Thanks for the great "period post" which gives us insight as to the simpler times 69 years ago in a far away country(at least for us in North America).
    Cheers, Bill

          The roof rack on the 52 Commander Starlight coupe is interesting. The removable type usually seen wouldn't work because the drip rails on a Starlight are so short.

            It looks like 4 suction cups and two web straps, one on each drip rail.

              I missed seeing the straps. I'm glad they did not bolt it to the roof.
