    So far, there have been some goood guesses as to what TT stands for. Actually, Studebaker wanted to use "SS" emblems on the cars instead, but since it'd been barely more than a decade since the end of WWII and the regime change in Germany,they felt it might cause public protest. But, Chevrolet managed to pull it off 5 or 6 years later. Not Really. Just Made that Up. [8]
    When I am asked what the TT on my Hawk means ...My answer is that it is an upgrade from SS.

        Auto trivia history.... There was a company in England that made upscale sporting cars before the war. After the war a new name was in order for the reason you give. By then "SS" had a rather negative connotation. The new name for the firm? Jaguar.

        Scott: good luck with the elcetion.
        Any politician who drives a Studebaker can't be all bad!
