  • This one hurts me to look at, for a few reasons...

    Proud NON-CASO

    I do not prize the word "cheap." It is not a badge of honor...it is a symbol of despair. ~ William McKinley

    If it is decreed that I should go down, then let me go down linked with the truth - let me die in the advocacy of what is just and right.- Lincoln

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

              Note the date, Sept 1956. Pretty early in the history of Drag Racing.

                  This '40 Champion 2 dr would have been brand new when these photos were taken in July 1940. Note the two tone paint on this Deluxe Champion. This was not introduced until the Spring of '40 and the new color schemes were referred to as Deluxe tones. Sure wish we could have seen it in color as they offered very few in light shades at that time. This would be the same car as Chris Dreesbachs but the Deluxe rather than the Custom.

                    1939 L5 Coupe Express. With a production of only 1200 units pretty unusual to see one in a random street scene.

                          Not to worry, Dwain; I'm sure it was galvanized, so it won't rust. (That was your concern, right?) 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.

                            All six visible being Champions.
                            All where can be seen (5) sporting optional front fender ornament on side, even the business coupe, which for some reason has a tarp tied over the rear window?

                            • Interesting to read here of at least two apparently-dealer-installed animal-print interiors in Studes...one of the two (known) Studebakers my granddad owned was a '49 Champion 4-door with at least the inner door panels, and (my aunt thinks) probably also the seats, covered in leopard-print fabric. I've long wanted to re-create that car. Maybe someday...or, if this was remotely common, maybe I'll run across one already done that way!
