      • Looks like 1955 at the local Studebaker Dealer's service area! StudeRich, is this Frost & French?

          That 1955 Packard Clipper hardtop in the foreground has to be either a Constellation or a Panama. The script below the rear quarter window looks like Constellation with the back half broken off! BP

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

            • From the Sunday, March 7 Old Motor...back in the days when you saw mostly American-made cars in the nation's capital...days long-gone...I count at least five Studebakers among the two photos, so there's probably more! BP

                    • I saw these Old Motor photos and thought that they should be on the forum. Thanks for posting them Bob.

                      • Dress shoes & a beard in 1956.

                        • I noticed those shoes too. My guess is "aspiring actor".
                          So.....if I'm 'pre-approved' why do you want me to fill out an application?

ID:	1885250 As scuffed as the shoes are, they may be his old dress shoes being repurposed for work. I have no guess about the beard, but it is well kept.

                            • The fifties were the Beatnik era and beards were not as uncommon as you think. They denoted a certain social and political ideology. It could also denote a "hip" wannabe. As for the shoes, if you weren't in leather or vinyl shoes about the only thing left were boots or "sneakers", which were not hip. Sneakers were for kids and teenage girls. I remember wearing Florsheim dress shoes for parking cars in Hollywood. They held up real well and were comfortable. Any other brand wore out in about 3 weeks because I was at a dead run most of the time.
