    Nor have I! I thought I'd seen them all. Thanks for sharing it!

    While I was there I re-watched the Zsa Zsa one where she closes the door on her new Lark and it just bounces instead of latching Like a true pro she just leans against it without missing a beat.

        I wonder whether the museum has all of those old films/ads?

          Says posted June '09. That's why I missed it, I haven't searched Studebaker videos since before then.

            Interesting, Michael; I had never seen that one either. Thanks for the link.

            There's a curious disconnect in that video: Remember, sliding-roof Wagonaires were shipped with a stern warning label on the dash that said the sliding roof must remain firmly locked whenever the car is in motion....yet the video shows the Girl Scouts riding merrily along and then crouching down and sliding the roof closed while the car is at speed.

            Interesting to see these old videos and realize that corporate lawyers today would never permit even half of that to be aired. 'Talk about stifling creativity! <GGG> BP
            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.
