            That one looks like an early 50's Chevrolet to me. How about the far right car.

              The one on the right is not Studebaker.
              Try the far, far right!

              • #9017, click on the pic and you will see a Stude. I think this scene is in France maybe. The car with the trunk-mounted spare is a Citroen I believe.

                  • I bet with today's CGI someone could rework all the SE to today's standards and still make it look original.

                    I'd rather be driving my Studebaker!

                      • #9017: I find it hard to believe that you would have found e sign in France in the 50's saying "parking".
                        It's a Citroen thou + a Opel Olympia, a seriously bad car, they didn't last long in Sweden; slow, bad brakes & horrible roadholding & rusted so much they were nick-named after a coffee-brand...

                              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
