  • 32' Special Photo Anybody recognize this building

    I just bought this photo it is very large 24" X 19.5" and extremely detailed. I recognize the large concrete pillars from a Studebaker Building, but don't know which one. I talked to Gary Ash and he thought that those cars were photo'ed at another builders shop for Studebaker at a seperate location, till I mentioned the pillars.

    I would guess engineering.
    The original '31 was put together by Studebaker engineers, but not under the direction of management. They did it for their personal satisfaction, on a lark, so to speak. It's performance at Indianapolis and Pikes Peak so impressed management they instructed them to build four more for '32.

      That photo was in The Antique Studebaker Review a couple years ago. Therein, Dick Quinn gave a thorough description of where it was, who they people were, etc.

      I'm sorry I don't keep my ASRs (I pass them on the The Veteran's Administration Hospital in Indianapolis), but someone who does should be able to locate it fairly easily. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
