          • Besides the black Stude hardtop, there are some very interesting vehicles in this picture.

            • Behind the Stude is an English Ford of some type. In the parking lot is a Renault Dauphine, a banged-up '51 Nash, and to the right side a white Crosley wagon and in front of that, a Citroen. Very interesting indeed.

              • In #1449, I was kind of digging the 1957 Ford Del Rio 2-door wagon at the curb...not only a 2-door, but the lowest production of all five 1957 Ford wagons, "The Wagon Master" of the 1950s. BP

                  Most likely a Consul. I posted one similar here: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ghlight=consul

                  • Yep; there's a Studebaker here, but bring in the women and children!

                    • "Honey, I'm taking the Studebaker today so you and the girls can have the Caddy for Bridge Club....uh, and while you're out, don't forget to stop by Jim's Super Shell and have him gas it up again; it's been three days since we filled it, so it's probably running low...."

                              Well, Joe; I'm glad the one guy is scratching the bumper of the Plymouth with his right foot, rather than the Studebaker! BP

                                I would like to say its the Mobilgas Economy Run, but the painting on the doors of all those STATION WAGONS indicate some other kind of test. Perhaps performance comparisons while loaded to capacity?
