    Would have been nice seeing a lot more pictures of the cars and a lot less of Steve being a douche. I wonder why he thought multiple pictures of the same car with him making different faces would be anything car guys would want to see

      Steve got the early 50's automatic transmission wrong. He says Studebaker used the BW M-35 when, in fact they were equipped with the BW Detroit Gear series which no other manufacturers were using as it was a Studebaker only transmission at that time. Later it was used in Jaguars.

        Yeah, a lot of mis-information that just a little fact checking would have corrected. Like the first year of the 4-speed being in 1962 - he said that several times.

        And the whopper about STP standing for "Studebaker Transmission Products"! He must get his information from Facebook experts.....

        But 99.5 percent of those watching aren't going to know or care.

          Thanks for posting.
          "Studebaker produced its most significant vehicles in the post-WWII era."

          IMO he got it mostly wrong by ignoring, almost completely, Studebaker's pre-war contributions. It's a case of selective revisionist history in order, the appeal to his readership.
