  • History Question: 1933 Indy 500 and Studebaker

    Here's a question for you all....
    Take a look at this Ebay item...
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=230062587720
    What does this statement mean?
    Anyone have any more info on this poster, or ad campaign?
    Inquiring minds want to know more!

    I've seen this poster intact - (not missing bits like this one) It actually reads: "The first 12 winners at Jadianapolis were Studebakers." Jadianapolis is a small town in southern Wisconsin. They had a dirt track there and a special weekly race just for Studebaker-powered cars.[:0][}][)]

    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.

            Wrong, Biggs. I HAVE the original poster. It says...

            "The first 12 wieners at Indianapolis were Fudebakers"

            Fudebakers meat packing plant had entered their entire line of 28 sausage types at the state fair in Indianapolis in 1933. The top 12 awards went to them.

            (BTW, they delivered their wieners in very fast cars to the grocers to insure freshness)

                Frankly, Dick - I think you're full of baloney! You trying to hijack my sad-assed attempt at humor proves you to be a brat of the wurst kind.
                In fact, if what you've said was true, hot dog that you are, you'd have provided some links to material which would validate your claims.
                I'm publicly wishing you bad luck with that engine you've got in your Studebaker. Here's hoping it starts to knock worst than, than, well, you get my drift! No - really, I liked your interpretation![]

                On the serious side - I'd like to know how that poster could make that claim. Maybe Studebaker had some printed in advance, just in case it DID turn out like that!

                          As a first year owner of a Studebaker and new to the SDC, I must say the laughs I get and the wit I find on here alone is worth my dues.

                          You guys are the greatest. (and also loads of help to us newbies)

                              That's the result of driving Studebakers for many many years. [8D]
