            Three or more Studes. The easy one is four up from the bottom left and another is a Starlight coupe next to the Willys "woody". A third one is the 5th car up from the "woody". The light color cars are easier to distinguish. There is what looks like a Stude convertible in the second row from the fence, about 7 cars up, and another dark colored one at the far end of that row.
            There are probably some I have missed, especially pre-war models. Someone was selling Studebakers in that area.

            • 3 to 5 Studebakers in all of those cars. That is probably about the right ratio based on the percentage of the market they had at that time.

              • Yes, if you ever wonder why they went out of business, period photos like this do provide the answer.

                    • You are looking West North West. Pic. must have been taken about 10 in the morning so it would be to the right since that tunnel is East-West at the East end. The Southern Pacific Red car ran through that tunnel going to Santa Monica.
