      I am assuming that under all of that snow is a brand new '40 Champion. The grill looks like it, but the trim along the side of the hood looks a little different. If it isn't a Studebaker, I apologize in advance. The picture was taken in 1940 in Chillicothe, Ohio.

      • 'Probably a 1939 Champion, Joe. Here's a factory photo:



        Note that the snow and ice pattern on the hood and upper body side trim could fool you into thinking it's not the car's actual trim, because it has "sorta" melted a little over the stainless-steel spears. BP

        • That's it, Bob. Thanks for clearing it up for me. We spent the night in Chillicothe on the way back to NC from South Bend. This picture shows why we don't have IM's in the winter time.

                      Good points, Joe. Might the 2-door hardtop down the street be a 1952 Ford? BP

                        The roof looks kind of Fordish. That headlight seems a little strange but it could be the camara angle.

                              Amazing. A legitimate distraction from one's attention to a 1953 Starliner. BP

                              • Did the paint really shine that much on a new 1953? Looks like some of today's shines achieved with base coat/clear coat.
