  • #8 Studebaker collectibles (Mobilgas economy run jacket)

    Believe it is from 1959-61. Will have to look it up again. Actually much to small for me.

    Cool! And you found this where.......???
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      I was there though much smaller at the time. I will have to look up my photos of the event.

        Now I remember. It was 1960 and I accompanied Jim Peterson of Altadena, CA. The run that year went from Los Angeles to Minneapolis. The Hawk won its class with 22.99 mpg. This was actually better than the Lark Six at 21.86 mpg. The Lark V8 also won its class at 23.28 mpg.

          Thanks Richard. That sorta provenance makes the jacket more interesting.

            Before my weight-obsessed cousin George Krem chimes in, I'll save him the keystrokes:

            If the Hawk got 22.99 mpg with those front bumper guards adding weight and disturbing the car's aerodynamics, it would have gotten exactlty 23 mpg without them. <GGG> 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.
