      Nope, Joe; not me!

          I agree it's Taylor TX, but I'm confused that the picture of CR Anthony and Prewitt Hardware look like CR Anthony is on the corner and on the above pic it looks like the hardware store is on the corner.

              • Wow, 1434 is WAY Cool! Just look at the size difference between the '61 or so Caddy Convertible and the '61 Lark Convert., on the OUTSIDE, not much diff. on the inside though!

                Nice Rambler Classic and '61? Ford Country Sedan also.

                1402: "Well ossiffer it's like this, I was on my way to Pasadena in my Glass Truck and this IDIOT stopped in front of me, so instead of killing him I put er sideways." There is unbroken GLASS and sideboards on the shoulder!

                I tried to figure out if that big Truck could also be a Stude. but I can't find the under Cab and Bed fuel tank, or any tank and the Hydrovac is on the wrong side.
                It has exterior running boards, could be a Chevy.

                  It's a '61, Rich. Look at the taillights and the chrome side trim in line with the door handle.

                    • Craig; I know you probably won't believe this but believe it or not, my first revision was very soon after I first posted my post, and it must have been a bit after you corrected me, but I did see the '61 Lark details and fix it.
                      AND I never saw your post, I was busy trying to figure out what year the Ford and Caddy are and fixing them.

                      Yeah I know:
                      "yeah right Rich. we believe that that like we believe the Earth is Flat!"

                              Yes, John, as Gary said; Ames, Iowa.

                              Search Whattoff Motors and/or Trailer Toter here on the Studebaker-only part of the forum and you'll come up with lots of reading. BP
