  • More old Studebaker pictures

    There's a lot out there if you know how to find it:

    http://content.cdlib.org/search?styl...-ignore=Search

    Apparently it's not allowed for me to just post some of these, so I'm giving the link. My favorites are the five girls on a Studebaker and the pictures of Lafayette's carriage owned by Studebaker - DOES THE MUSEUM STILL HAVE THIS CARRIAGE?

    Happy looking!

        Don,
        I don't think there's any complaint to posting the pics to this forum. After all, they're STUDEBAKER pics. I think Scott's complaint is that he can't get the individual pic links to work.

        Either way, browsing the pics the other day - what caught my eye in one description was the notation that there was a Red Crown Gasoline sign on the one dealership from the teens. It said gas was $o.19&1/2cents a gallon. According to a conversion calculator, that nineteen and one half cents is worth $3.70 in today's money!!! Heck, $3.50 regular[] is cheap stuff!!!!

        Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

        1957 Transtar 1/2ton
        1960 Larkvertible V8
        1958 Provincial wagon
        1953 Commander coupe
        1957 President two door

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            One other thing I'd like to know (Mr. Studebaker Wheel) - what kind of mileage did the Studebakers of the teens typically get???

                Take a moment to read the description of the character in Photo #16 at the end of Scott's list once you click onto the link...what a hoot! [}]BP
                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                        Bob, Messr. Saville was a character right out of some Hollywood western! I wonder if he was notorious enough to where the Studebaker Bros. ever got wind of his dastardly ways.
                        Sadly, this same sort of swindler has adapted his ways to the newest field of opportunity - ebay. And swindling with Studebakers, no less.[V]
