    It is hard to tell from this newspaper clipping, but it would appear to me that some portions of this truck could have been salvaged. Wish they would of used a old rusted out Datsun PU of instead, as the older Japanese vehicles from the 70's were usually rusted out long before they quit running.

      And of course, as usual someone thought that a '49-'53 R Series Stude. Truck was a '48! Even though the model does not look even close to an M Series, at least the Year is close.

        A Datsun or Nissan wouldn't last ten years on the road, let alone off, and certainly can't hold its water like that Studebaker![)]

          Maybe it quit right there, after getting the last load of rock to the site, and is intended to serve as a monument of its own accomplishments.
          And I wonder if Mary-Ann-the-Steam-Shovel is in the basement of that house serving as the boiler!!

            Nice one, Craig! Virginia Lee Burton and your 1st grade teacher would be very proud of you for remembering that one!

            FWIW, I don't think its the worst thing done to a Studebaker. I'd love to have that in my backyard. I'm sure my son would, too. Our favorite playground was a couple dozen old hulks being reclaimed by the earth.

            I'm with Dave - better than the crusher and plenty memorable for any who see it!

              I was most impressed how one could make a Buderus out of a Bucyrus in a single afternoon!![:0]
