  • Can you say Art Deco?

    This, to me, is a true work of art. 1936 Studebaker Ace

        That drawing is really nice. When I see "renderings" like that, I always wonder if the vehicle was ever actually made, or if that was just some ad guy pitching a possibility. That would have been one slick rig.

            That actually is a photograph that's been heavily retouched. Back in those days, photo film wasn't sensitive enough to capture the wide range of contrasts that eventually became capable, so it was standard practice when you got a photo composed the way you wanted it to have a professional retoucher "work" the picture to delineate areas that had fallen out of contrast. These guys were amazing artists; they often worked directly on the negative (which were usually 4x5" or larger).

            So yes, that truck was built!

                    That is a cool truck!!

                    Funny you should mention Art Deco... I totally fell in love with the Art Deco hood ornament from a 47 Stude at Reedsville, to the extent I almost bought it just to have!! []

                    Cooler heads prevailed, though... I decided to instead look for a nice 47- WITH the ornament- to buy instead!!

                            You have a "R" series hood ornament pictured, Bob was refering to the "M" series.
