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

              Bob, I thought the same thing about the VW's by the dozens coming into the county. Certainly a view into the future. Studebaker fails and VW swamps us with bug. Then of course there are the thoughts about how things might have been different if VW and Studebaker had joined forces. Oh well.......

              • I remember a thought comparing the Citroen 2CV and the Beetle, "One is a brilliant idea horrendously executed while the other is a horrendous idea brilliantly executed!".

                • I've had many cars, beetles 'cause they came almost for free once upon a time - & 2cv's 'cause they're awfully charming, comfortable & easily the funniest car ever made = more a toy with umbrella than a car: no power, no heating system, no speed & never having to slow down for a speedbump while other cars almost have to stop for them... & the only(!) thing you have to do from under the engine/gearbox when working on it is to let the oil out!

                    This is in Tallahassee, Florida in 1951. I found the first picture on the H.A.M.B. but looked up the name of the station and found it was part of a fire. Whether the Studebaker truck caused the fire or the building fell on it as a result of the fire I don't know. For more pictures: http://www.floridamemory.com/items/show/54398

                      • #1484: Isn't that the same State Theater as on the cover of the 1961 Lark brochure, but with a vertical sign earlier in life?

                        South-Benders, please confirm. BP

                          I'd say yes.

                          • That IS in fact the State Theater from the cover of the '61 Lark advertisement catalog.
