  • Studebaker in a tree

    My father-in-law graciously provided me with this picture since mine was misplaced. This is the Kentucky Studebaker in a Tree, located near Clay City, Kentucky. Rumor is that tree grew and lifted the car off the ground, but I doubt it

    Either a 42 or 46 Champion I think.

        This car was part of an article not that long ago in Turning Wheels.
        Maybe 4 or 5 years ago.

            That would sure be a slow way to jack up a car!

                If the tree grew up under the car it would have bent away from it. Also, if that was the case, how did the sheet metal disk get between the two? That tree has to be at least fifty years old. The disk would have rusted away. looks more like someone winched it up there as a joke.

                    Trees aren't like people. If you put a nail in a tree's trunk at the height of your Studebaker door handle tomorrow and drive up next to the tree 50 years from now it will still be at the door handle height. That, in spite of the fact the tree may have grown another 50' or so over those years.

                        It would be tough to make a romantic scene of carving your initials and your girlfriend's initials in the tree trunk and coming back twenty years later to find them ten feet higher up in the tree.[:X]

                            Think about it this way. How many times have you seen old barb wire that was part of an old fence line embedded in a tree? Even after many years it is still at the same height it was when first strung. If the tree grew from the bottom, farmers would have to add a new bottom strand every few years to keep the cows from walking under the fence.
