      I'm dang near speechless. Wow!

      Wish I could have been there/then!

      I know that I have not seen any of those anywhere since I started making Stude meets.

        I was not there either, but recognize the Semi-trailer in the background of the 4X4's. Wasn't that Asa Hall's? Those are all beautiful. Too much in one setting........it almost knocked me out.

            That trailer with the script on it would have been Carroll Studebaker's. It is blurry in that photo, but it read 'Careying a Family Tradition"

            The two '59 4X4's were profiled later in the October, 1981 issue of the defunct Car Exchange magazine, each owned by two brothers, David and Calvin Walker.

              The two electrics and wicker goat wagon belonged to Carroll and were transported in his semi. The goat wagon once belonged to Dwight Eisenhower.
              Anyone know where any of them are now?

                    Im going with somewhere in the late 70s. The Puma shoes and designer jeans on the guy under the red truck date it at 70s for me. So does the terry cloth shorts on the girl and rolled up jeans on the guy in the pic with the turn of the century coaches. Im going with 1977 ish....where: No idea...but I will guess Indiana somehwere.

                      Looks like Gettysburg in 1980 to me. The electrics and Eisenhower cart arrived in the trailer.

                        Bingo!!!

                        Asa Hall was there.



                        This was Carroll's tractor



                        This attracted interest



                        And, this car made its debut.

                          I'm pretty sure you are right Steve.

                            Thanks, I knew the time period was right. I think I have seen both of these trucks but never together. Either is drool-worthy. Steve

                              Yes; Gettysburg 1980. You never forget those two red 4X4s side-by-side if you were there (and I was). 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."

                              G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
