I cropped out the part showing a parking lot across the street where there is what looks like a '55 Studebaker "C" body coupe.

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

    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    • Don’t know anything about this picture. Looks like it might be back-row (some call it ‘bone row’) trade-ins at a car lot.

                Hey, watch how you talk about where I used to do my shopping!
                Seriously, it looks more like cars someone was holding on to. They are too interesting as a group. The exception might be the Chevy 4 door. There was a time though, when older convertibles were usually on the back row along with Studebakers and other non-big 3 brands. The Jeep with the plow was probably just something they used in the winter. We can only guess.

                1952 Commander 2 door. Really fine 259.

                    • I can positively identify 3 Studebakers in that photo, including a truck which appears to be a 3/4 ton or 1 ton.
