                Sure. What wouldn't it be, Bob?

                Any idea where that was taken? BP
                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

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

                  No idea, I took it from the Station Wagon Forum. As with most pictures in that thread, there is no caption/description.

                  I think you meant 'Why', right? The angle, distance, and snow across the nose was just enough to make me wonder...

                    • I sure enjoy the history in these.

                      Is the woody in #127 a Chevrolet? A friend has a Chevrolet in pieces and might like to see this photo. His is a 1948 woody.

                      • While I like the woody in post #127, I love the '57 and back VW oval window in the corner...nice. I am imagining it as a '54 and back with semiphores on the door post.....wher is that drool emoticon....aahhhahhaha

                          • I love these photos! It really makes one appreciate how few Studebakers, compared to the big three, were actually out there on the road.
