    Interesting. I spent a week in Mallorca in '71 and I didn't see any Studebakers.

        I think this picture was post card and was much earlier than your visit. See the Studebaker in this picture really took me by surprise.

          Has anybody seen any Studes in Cuba or Americans even permitted to travel there? Whenever any of my fellow Canadians come back from a Cuban vacation I always try to find a Stude in the photos but so far no luck. Maybe Studes were never exported to Cuba before the revolution?

                Sheez! I can't believe that nobody picked up on my reference! Some 70s veterans you all are...

                Maybe if I gave the correct spelling of Majorca, and mentioned Ringo...

                    If you check Mallorca and Majorca are correct. Most of the places I looked to find a little info about this used Mallorca (as it is spelled on the post card I posted to begin this thread.)

                        Amazing that a postcard can trigger a memory like that And Joe, thanks for the trivia lesson. Sorry about the stray OT, but I hoped you wouldn't get too mad <G>

                            They may have Studebakers there but they don't know the're Bulletnoses, they have the years backwards.
