  • '53 Convertible in Sun. Comics

    In the Sunday Comics for October 19, the main item in "Slylock Fox and Comics for Kids" is a 1953 Studebaker convertible with 1954 Sportster caps on full wheelcovers. The car is well done, even including the hood emblems.
    For those that don't know, an artist for this comic strip is an SDC member. He has included Studebakers in the past, usually trucks, but I haven't seen one included in awhile.

    I saw the comic and asked my wife and daughter what they noticed. The wife caught it immediately, but the daughter missed it. I'll have to assign her some remedial reading in Turning Wheels!

      I just watched a tape of last week's "King of the Hill", and a character was driving a Lark.

          I know that you are kidding, but I can only think of three that are now around.

            He did it again (included Studebaker). In today's (11/30/08) "Slylock Fox" in the "Sunday Comics" there is a cartoon version of a 1957 Studebaker sedan. It even has a correct hood emblem and the radio antenna on the driver's side.
