  • Spot the Stude, could be tricky.... Oops!! Spoke too soon, darn



    This photo seems appropriate today given the heavy fresh snow that came last night after freezing rain late yesterday. Took extra time to get to work due to bad roads. Mid 20s today with a low expected near 0F tonight. Colder through the weekend. The only good thing about it is perhaps will slow down spring flooding a bit, although it added to the water load.

    Back to the photo. I "think" there are some studes in there but not 100% sure! What say?

    I see the Henry J on the left...not sure about Studes.

            Definately a 52 hardtop and another unknown 52. I had missed the Henry J at first. Not many of those around either.

              I saw more than one instantly....but the Henry J was a great bonus feature.
              You can't anything under snow from us Canadians.
              Junior probably could have spotted these with another 2' of snow on them!

                As a 52 HT owner I have looked closely (200x) at the two on the right behind the fence a believe they are 52 Nash cars based on the bumpers and tail lights.

                    Those two cars inside the fence are definately Nashes, but I wasn't sure of the year. I caught the Henry J right away. I couldn't detect any Studes though.

                      I need new glasses, but could that Studebaker be a truck? I thought M series but its likely a Ford or something.

                        When I first saw this picture, I thought the 2 cars with snow on them behind the fence on the right could be '52 studes. As I looked again I did note the bumpers wrapped around the fenders unlike a stude so I had doubts.

                        The ID of those cars being Nash's was not something I would have thought of since I have seen so few of them. Here is a rear shot of a '52 Nash so I think that is correct:



                        What is the car behind the Nash's parked to the right of the Chevy?

                          OK, Jeff H, where do you think the Stoody's are? the ones behind the fence are Nash's. if your lead by the caps on the tail lights, take a second look at the bumper, Stoody never had such a wrap around, The follow on posting of the 52 Nash supports tis.

                            Yup, per my second look and the other poster's cues, I no longer think those 2 cars on the right are '51-'52 studes as I first thought. Those were the only studes I thought I saw.

                              Wow; great old picture. That Henry J reminds me just a little of the current Dodge Charger side view. Give a young kid a picture of a old car, turn him loose on a 'puter and we have a "new" design auto for sale.
