  • Viva La Studebakers!

    Holy Cow! Cool Beans! [8D] Look at all the Studebakers in this video: [][8D][:I][:0]

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    THAT'S my idea of racing![^] Not the phony crap that NASCAR feeds up. - zooming billboards on a perfect track with crash-proofed bumper-cars.[xx(]

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle!!

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

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

        Thanks for posting that Bob. I had posted a thread on that race a while back with a picture of the Studebaker that crashed, but I hadn't seen any of the other Studebakers

                I have mixed feelings on this. It's nice to see the Studebakers still holding their own with the best, still, that's one bullet nose less. It's not like a Chevy where they had hundreds of thousands of them made either. The Studes are therefore far more precious, more rare, so much more of a loss when one crashes like the above.

                seems like whomever did this video, really likes Studes. They seem to appear more than any other model. It also looks like more than one bullet-nose ended up trashed. There was a black one that ended up in the drink, sans it's whole front clip.

                So, Go Stude! Wince, wince...
